Is this a duff lens or something? For one thing it’s absolutely covered in dust, there seems to be heavy wear all over it (is this a mass used review lens?) and the image samples are really poor. The test photos are extremely low quality seemingly. Everything I’d seen up until this review showed the lens to be MUCH sharper with clearer image quality too.

What’s up?

Too expensive and without IS. Using that inside withous IS would be akward.

This lens is quickly becoming my goto for family portraits and dramatic wide shots during our wedding.  Getting close to the subject also creates a beautiful bokeh background with super sharp subjects in the foreground.

I own a 24mm, 35mm, and a 50mm that are all prime L glass lenses. When I purchased this, I was able to save a ton of time switching lenses when on work opportunities and was also able to get more shots quickly never losing a moment. I’d recommend this lens to everybody, professionals and beginners.

Just to let you know you have made a mistake in listing the price : ‘The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM officially retails for £2299.99 / $2299.99 in the UK and the USA respectively.’  I trust it’s not that much in £!  Yikes!

I’m lucky enough to own most of the prime lens from Canon. And this 24-70 blows me away for its sheer IQ and versatile uses.. Worth every penny and if your a social tog will prob stay on one of your cameras all day
