Unfortunately Quite Disappointed

  • Excerpt: I am primarily a landscape photographer and have owned the 24-105 F4L since it first came out and have used it for the large share of my shooting. I also own 8 other Canon L lenses that i use. However, with all of the rave reviews for the sharpness of the 24-70 f2.8 ll, I wanted to give it a try and was expecting to see a real difference between it and the 24-105.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: No IS, Not that sharp, Too expensive

Center sharp, but corners are soft

  • Excerpt: Not been too overly impressed with the lens after paying that extra $$$. The colours and contrast is fantastic, however, after doing some simple tests with a resolution chart, the corners are mushy.Attached two pictures that were taken on a tripod and used the timer function to make sure there was no camera shake.Very dissapointed, or it might have been just a bad copy.
  • Pros: Colour reproduction, Contrast
  • Cons: Corner Sharpness

  • Excerpt: I waited for some time to receive this lens from B+H and when I received the lens and without even putting the camera on the body I took my 1ds Mk3 and all my L Series lenses to the "camera Clinic "in Melbourne to be adjusted to the camera and of course any external cleaning.very little.

  • Pros: удобный диапазон фокуса от широкоугольной репортажки до вполне себе портретника при постоянной 2,8 (которая на длинном фокусе и на полной кадре уже достаточно неплохо моет фон)
  • Cons: за полгода использования отклеилась резинка кольца зуммирования! (руки у меня в порядке, еще несколько объективов в арсенале, которыми и по три года пользуюсь и все ок, кроме того у ряда моих коллег такая же проблема имено с этим объективом) - для объектива за 70 тр это очень удивительно
