Pros: Price (compared to other brand's 24-70); build quality; image quality
Cons:
If weight isn't a "negative" aspect, there's none so far as what I've experienced.

This is a tank, the flagship of Canon zoom. Every nice thing about it has been talked about for years. I'm far from qualified to comment on anything technical, optical, or ergonomic about this lens since I'm not even amateur, yet. However, once you've used this lens, once you took a picture with it, once you've seen the pictures taken by this lens, you'll fall in love with it. Yes it does have focus issue, for which I sent mine to the Irvine, CA Canon Service Factory for calibration, and it came back with the problem resolved. It's sharp, accurate, fast. Sometimes it may hunt in dark, but I think it's acceptable. It may be a pain in the back to send an optic back and forth after $1000+ has been paid, but I personally think it's worth it.
