Lens Test: Canon EF 24-70MM F/2.8L II USM Zoom

Pop Photo
20 January 2014
  • Excerpt: The latest in a line of storied lenses going back to the 28–80mm f/2.8–4L of April 1989, this is Canon’s fourth high-speed, full-frame, standard-range, L-series autofocus zoom. The previous 24–70mm f/2.8L was introduced in November 2002, and compared with that lens, this version II ($2,299, street) has better weather-sealing, AF processing, and a more rugged build. Its major upgrade, however, is the addition of more high-end glass.

REVIEW: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens Review

photodo
4 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Handling and features A professional standard zoom lens covering the popular 24-70mm focal range, which sports a constant fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 and silent focusing with full-time manual focus override. This lens carries a very high price tag of around £2300, which is really quite expensive for a standard zoom lens. In this review we'll take a look at how it performs and whether the premium price is justified.

  • 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

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

The Digital Picture
9 February 2012
  • Excerpt: The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM Lens is clearly the best performing Canon full-frame-compatible general purpose zoom lens available. It is the best from both an image quality perspective and from an AF speed/accuracy perspective. This lens is very sharp/has excellent contrast across the frame even at f/2.8 and is well built, focuses extremely fast and contains a most-used range of focal lengths. The cons? Price and lack of image stabilization.

  • Excerpt: The Canon company has always tried to offer standard, fast, professional zoom lenses. In 1993 the EF 28-70 mm f/2.8L USM was launched and in 2002 it was substituted by the EF 24–70 mm f/2.8L USM. As you can see there were nine years of difference between those two – small wonder near 2010-2011 rumours were circulating about the next successor. Canon made its users wait almost a decade and the new lens was presented only in February 2012.
  • Cons: lateral chromatic aberration corrected in a worse way than that of the rivals,, huge vignetting on full frame,, weak performance against bright light,, exorbitant price.

  • Summary: Det overrasket de fleste at Canon ikke bygget inn bildestabilisering i andre generasjon av sitt helprofesjonelle zoomobjektiv, men det var ifølge det japanske firmaet ikke mulig hvis de ville holde vekt og størrelse nede, samt oppnå den best ...
