Bargain lens if you can get rebates

Shoei, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: If your on a budget and can get a good rebate with this lens, I would not hesitate to buy this lens. Probably after a year of use and if you have the need to go to F2.8 you can pretty much sell the lens for what you paid for and upgrade, if you don't try to sell it during rebate periods. If your use to fast lenses with a zoom and need to shoot indoors, don't get this lens.

Quality is what counts

  • Excerpt: Good, quality product that you'd expect from Canon. I found it much sharper in the corners compared to the less expensive Tamron competitor with both lenses at F4.Glad I spent the little bit extra on the Canon.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

an excellent addition

John G., B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: An excellent addition. Great lens, super sharp images, well made. Compact, and not the heavy monster that is the 24-70mm F/ 2.8, which makes the f/4 a great all around lens to carry and capture life.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction

Great lens!

  • Excerpt: Got this lens (and the 70-200mm f4L) for my 60D as a replacement for my Tamron 18-270, which I found to be so-so, especially at the telephoto end. I have been looking at the L lenses for quite a while and finally took the plunge. Glad I did. Much sharper than the Tamron. I use this lens as my primary "walk about" lens and have been very happy with it.

Reasonably Pleased So Far

StatMan, B&H Photo
23 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I was considering the purchase of the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, but grudgingly concluded that image stabilization was more important than a stop of speed and purchased the EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM instead. So far, I am reasonably pleased with the lens. The auto-focus is fast and accurate, and the zoom and focus rings operate very smoothly with just enough resistance. I like that the lens locks at 24mm for carry.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Macro Difficult

Very well put together

  • Excerpt: The lens was well put together. It had a nice feel to it. I didn't care for the macro because I already have the 100mm lens which performs much better. I felt the lens was rather limited in reach. If you don't already have the macro lens this lens might be a very nice addition.
  • Pros: Durable, Strong Construction

Good and sharp, but very expensive.

Rich Z., Amazon

  • Summary: I received my order quick, sooner than expected. I purchased it refurbished and can say in perfect shape, not a mark on it. The focus is fast and sharp on my Canon 6D. It also has a Macro feature although it's not 1 to 1. I really have no complaints except for the price. I think it's way overpriced, But it does have the red ring. I have a Tamron 17-35mm that's just as sharp and cost 1/4 the price brand new. One nice thing is it's weather sealed.
