  • Conclusion: First let me say that this review is written for my copy of the 24-70 f/2.8 - not my opinion of the lens in general. I have seen what a good copy of this lens can do, and it is amazing! A good copy of this lens is a solid "10"! Unfortunately, I fell victim to Canon's poor quality control that this lens is known for, and received a VERY POOR copy. The first problem I noticed was with the zoom ring. It was very tight between 24-50mm with a grinding sound as it turned.
  • Pros: Great Build Quality (except zoom ring)
  • Cons: Poor Quality Control, Blurry images

DO NOT BUY!

  • Summary: Extremely disappointed with this lens. Poor focus after 15', Images never sharp under any condition . Not at all what you would expect from an L series. Lots of $$$$ poor performance. Working on third copy. Unfortunately did not get chance to evaluate prior to warranty running out. CAUTION!!!! PS Also failed to research product reviews until too late, my bad, Better luck to all!

  • Conclusion: I have had a very disappointing experience with this lens. I have been a Canon user since the 1970s beginning with the FTBn and I have several L series lens, all of which work flawless. I ordered it from Dell and as soon as received it I took several test shots with my 40D at various focal lengths using autofocus. I was surprised to find none of them were sharp. I then put the lens on both an XTI and an old Digital Rebel and got the same results.
  • Pros: Fast
  • Cons: Poor build/quality control by Canon

Not as robust as it seems...

  • Summary: Be carefull dropping it! I was shooting and my canon 5D mark III with the lens fell slipped out of my hands. At first , everything looked fine but then I saw the back of the lens completely broke off.. This guy had the same problem, http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3003348. I strongly recommend just buying the new one and not this version.

For this much money it shouldn't be faulty

  • Summary: After being much impressed by the quality of a friend's photos using a Canon 5D + this lens it seemed like a no brainer when it came to upgrading the crappy 18-55 IS kit lens on my 500D. Photos, specifically portraits, are quite nice at up to about 5m, with nice bokeh and 'shape', but not all that crisp. Over 5m, it's very disappointing. Barely 1 photo in 5 is in focus, and those that are quite soft.

Schade

  • Summary: An meiner 5D Mark 2 und an der 1D Mark 4 war das Objektiv ziemlich Scharf und ich war eigentlich Zufrieden, da ich mein Geld mit der Fotografie verdiene und meine Bodys nach geraumer Zeit wieder verkauft werden hab ich mich für die 5D Mark 3 entschieden. Diese Linse an der 5D Mark 3 ist eine Katastrophe, extrem Unscharf bei 24mm und bei 70mm, OK ab zum Service und justieren lassen.

L "Qualität" / Canon Service ?!?

Micha, Amazon
20 September 2012
  • Summary: Eigentlich war ich mit dem Objektiv relativ zufrieden, obwohl die Schärfe für ein Objektiv > 1.000 Euro nicht wirklich optimal war. Nach einer kostenlosen Objektivjustage auf meine 7D war es aber akzeptabel. Die Justage wurde innerhalb von 1-2 Stunden beim Servicepoint Greb super durchgeführt, dem Canon leider in 2012 die Lizenz entzogen hat (es befindet sich dort nun ein Nikon Service Point), nun muss man seine Kamera auf eigene Kosten, teuer versichert, nach Willich...

Schärfe für ein Objektiv dieser Preisklasse nicht akzeptabel

  • Summary: Habe früher viel mit dem Tamron 28-75 XR 2.8 gearbeitet und hatte die Hoffnung, durch einen Umstieg auf das Canon EF 24-70 L-Objektiv eine bessere Geschwindigkeit beim Fokussieren sowie noch bessere Bildqualität zu bekommen. Während der Fokus dank des Ring-USM tatsächlich schön schnell und leise ist, ist die Bildqualität deutlich schlechter als beim weit günstigeren Tamron.
