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

Electronics Made Easy
12 December 2010
  • Summary: Overall, the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Standard Zoom Lens is an expensive but worthy addition to the Canon SLR lens collection. Despite having autofocus and low-light issues, this model is among the best that a consumer can buy for a single, standard lens accessory. Needless to say, it is quite heavy, so if you plan to do traveling then you will want to consider a different model.
  • Pros: Powerful- improved lens design and new AF processor, Quality- high-quality elements ensure the best image capturing
  • Cons: Bulky- heavy, not for the traveling photographer, Problematic- minor autofocus and sharpness issues, Expensive- good value for lens but still pricey

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

SLR Lens and Camera Reviews
1 June 2009
  • Summary: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM is a pretty solid lens with great overall optical characteristics, solid build quality and low level of artifacts (such as vignetting and chromatic aberration). Unfortunately, like most L lenses, EF 24-70mm f/2.8 is quite expensive (not the most expensive lens standard zoom on the market, but not affordable either). The sheer size and weight of the lens can also be considered as negative by some users.

Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L and Canon EF 28-70mm f/2.8L Lenses

Images by William Castleman
4 February 2008
  • Conclusion: The EF 28-70mm f/2.8L and EF 24-70mm f/2.8L are high quality professional zoom lenses that perform better in most cases than non-L prime lenses in their range in producing sharp, contrasty images with excellent color. The L-primes (e.g., EF 35mm f/1.4L ) still offer a slightly higher level of performance. The EF 24-70mm offers the advantages of wider perspective at 24mm and generally higher MTF at wide angles than the EF 28-70mm f/2.8L.
