  • Summary: The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is a near-flawless lens with optics that come very close to matching a set of top-quality primes. With fast, accurate autofocus and weathersealed construction, it's difficult to find any really serious faults at all.
  • Pros: Superb, almost flawless optics, Impressive flare resistance, Fast, silent, and accurate autofocus, Excellent build quality including weathersealing
  • Cons: Unpleasant vignetting in the 50-70mm region at F2.8 on full frame, Noticeably lower image quality at close focus distances, No image stabilisation, Very expensive
