Not as sharp as expected. Dark at 70mm on Video

  • Summary: Pros: Light, portable, and beautiful colors compared to 24-70mm I or 24-105mm. Cons: A tad bit sharper than 24-70mm I or 24-105mm but still not sharp at all. (expect almost same blurriness as 24-70mm I) Lots of aberration on corners compared to 16-35mm 2.8 II (Sorry, I don't own 24-70mm I anymore to compare aberration) IS is usable and is not as effective as that on other IS lenses. Expect 1/3-1/2 stop less light at 70mm on video mode.

  • Excerpt: Pros: Light, portable, and beautiful colors compared to 24-70mm I or 24-105mmCons: A tad bit sharper than 24-70mm I or 24-105mm but still not sharp at all. (expect almost same blurriness as 24-70mm I)IS is barely usable and is not as effective as that on other IS lenses.Expect 1-stop less light at 70mm. Not nice for video.Macro is a bit limited.Don't listen to all the hypes from Canon saying that this lens is the second sharpest lens after 24-70mm f/2.8 II.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor in Low Light, Weak Casing

  • Summary: Hadde denne til testing en dag, så brukergrunnlaget er litt begrenset. Ble ikke imponert, spesielt over skarpheten i bildene. Her virker det som Canon har slurvet, og hvorfor det bare har F/4.0 er en gåte. Byttet denne mot Tamron 24-70mm F/2.8 som var en åpenbaring i forhold. Mye skarpere bilder, og ikke minst mer lyssterk, i tillegg til perfekt VR.
  • Pros: Liten og lett, Kompakt
  • Cons: Skarpheten holder ikke L-kvalitet, F/4.0??

  • Summary: es ist ein gutes neues starkes objektiv vorallem ist es verdichtet! auch gut ist der bildstabilisator bei der lichtstärke wirkungsvoll! dennoch gibts alte festbrennweiten die bei 1.4 anfangen und besser sind! meins geht zurück!!

Nicht schlecht

  • Summary: So ich schreibe die Rezension hier mal nochmal neu da sich meine Meinung zu dem Objektiv etwas geändert hat. In erster Linie kann ich es besser einsortieren. Ich hatte am Anfang etwas Probleme wo dieses Objektiv seinen Platz findet. Es gab ein 24-70 f/2.8 und ein 24-105 f/4, wozu ein 24-70 f/4 Ich kann das ganze jetzt etwas besser beurteilen da es im Direktvergleich zum 24-105 f/4 doch besser abschneidet.
