Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM

Screen_Shot_2013-11-16_at_5_30_13_PM
Review Date: Dec 20, 2017 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,850.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharpness, weather resistant, overall quality of the build, images. Just spectacular optics
Cons:
The Price

it's the best general Canon lens ever. It's good for everything- reportage, weddings (you have just one lens- it you can use it for the whole day), family and children photography.
Food photography is also ok with this, but anyway i would want some macro lens for the best food pics.
Some images here was made with this lens-

Review Date: Dec 20, 2017 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $380.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: The ratio between price and quality of pictures is fabulous
Cons:
Lack weatherdust resistant elements

this is on one of oldest and the cheapest lens (beside 50mm 1.8).
Though the image quality, sharpness and blur are just excellent.
I also own Canon 70-200mm 2.8 IS II L, but for the general portraits use 85mm in most cases.
The portrait pics in this gallery http://www.cherkasovalex.com/svadby/anna-max/ for example was made with 85mm.
And most close-up portraits <a href="http://www.cherkasovalex.com/portfolio/portrety/">here</a> too.
