Review Date: Jun 28, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,200.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Amazing IQ even wide open
Cons:
Not very wide on crop body, 17-40L better for tight spaces.

Love this lens. Indoors with or without flash this lens cannot be beat. Outdoors colours are incredible. Sharpness and IQ is bettern than expected. Only lens sharper is the 70-200 f4L or possibly the 400mm f5.6L which I use less frequently than the 24-70L.
The weight issue is something to consider. I am thinking about a battery grip so that I can use the handstrap. Wearing this lens around the neck (with strap) is really not an option.
