Two defective copies tried

ETB, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: First copy I received made an audible clicking noise when operating the zoom ring. The zoom ring also felt very gritty. Sent back. Second copy had very inconsistent autofocus. Micro autofocus adjustments were impossible as the lens would backfocus sometimes, and front-focus others in the exact same test conditions! If the copies I evaluated did not have these issues, I'd likely give the lens 4 out of 5 stars.

Great optics, poor quality control

C. H. Lee, Amazon

  • Summary: As far as the lens is concerned, it was superb. Great contrast and saturation, and as all the reviews have noted, it was extremely sharp. The problem for this lens however was the quality of the lens construction. I had to go through 3 different lenses, and in the end, I returned all of them because they all had similar issues. The first lens I received had issues on the focus ring. When focusing you can hear the ball bearings rubbing and was not smooth.

Superb Sharp and quick

  • Excerpt: I owned the 1st 24-70 f/2.8, I believe I had a softer sample as they had quite a range of variation in them, however this version is loads better. It is almost as sharp as my macro, even wide open, which is unheard of for a zoom. Its a bit soft when focusing at the minimum focal length however its not a macro so I don't expect it to be spectacular at that end.

An Expensive Disappointment

  • Excerpt: Given the price of this lens, the lack of Image Stabilization is an unforgivable omission. If you read the Canon propaganda, it says that they skipped I.S. on this lens in the name of image quality; that adding I.S. would have somehow made it worse. I’m not buying that argument. I own (and LOVE) the fabulous EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM â€" and Image Stabilization definitely didn’t hurt THAT lens.
  • Pros: Fast auto-focus
  • Cons: No Image Stabilization, Price

Schade fürs Geld

Fledermaus, Amazon
10 July 2013
  • Summary: Mit großen Erwartungen, aufgrund der vielen positiven Rezensionen, habe ich mir das EF 24-70mm f/2,8L II USM Objektiv am 6. Januar 2013 bei Amazon (Bestellnr. 28-0332255-9669165) gekauft. Es wird an einer EOS 5D Mark II eingesetzt. Nach den ersten Testbildern, Blende 2,8 und Brennweiten 24 und 70mm an einer weißen Wand, war mein Traum zu Ende. Die Abbildung zeigt mehr oder weniger einen weißen Fleck auf schwarzem Grund. Absolut unbrauchbar die Bilder mit offener Blende.

No es nuevo

  • Summary: Lo ha puesto en venta como nuevo pero el mismo indica que ha sido utilizado por lo que debería ser vendido como de segunda mano aunque su estado sea 'como nuevo'.

¿SEGURO ES 24-70mm f/2.8L Mark II?

KARLOS, amazon.es
15 January 2013
  • Summary: Este modelo dice que lleva un filtro de 77 y el modelo 24-70mm f/2.8L Mark II lleva filtro de 82.Es un poco raro... una de dos o el enunciado de este producto está mal y no es el II o si el enunciado está bien la descripción del filtro está mal
