Product description

Style:24-70mm f/2.8L

From the Manufacturer

The Canon EF 24-70mm standard zoom lens does what many pros thought couldn't be done--it replaces the L-series 28-70mm f/2.8 lens with something even better. The lens offers extended coverage to an ultra-wide-angle 24mm, making it ideal for digital as well as film shooters. The new processing unit, meanwhile, makes the autofocus (AF) faster than ever. And thanks to the two aspherical elements and a totally new UD glass element, the optics are far superior to the earlier lens. Sealed and gasketed against dust and moisture, the EF 24-70mm lens carries a one-year warranty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well priced yet premium quality standard zoom.
Reviewed in Canada on June 12, 2019
I'm a part time professional photographer, and a self-labelled prime lens snob. However, in the interests of client satisfaction, for certain gigs I needed more flexibility than 3 prime lenses could offer.

Initially I believed an f4 maximum aperture would be a handicap. This proves to be false, in the case of this lens. When mounted on a full frame body, performance seems superior even to the f2.8...

Breakdown of pros and cons:

Pros:
-extremely well priced
-optically delivers better results than a borrowed f2.8L
-quiet and responsive AF usable even for video.
-IS seems effective down to about 1/15 sec.
-macro switch is a nice touch, though takes some getting used to
-lightweight and relatively discreet
-rugged enough to be caught in a shower/use in dusty natural environments

Cons:
My version arrived in a plain box with no warranty card. I'm assuming it's a grey import.
-zoom action feels a little coarse, would be problematic for serious movie making.
-external zoom can be annoying when using on a light body such as RP or crop sensor.
-macro is useful, but the switch is a little worrisome until user becomes habituated.
-the styling is a bit old fashioned which is not surprising. This is not a recent iteration but a tried and tested formula. I tend to tape over the logos and superfluous writing in any case so this is a non-issue for me.

My uses:
-Hobby, including aviation and nature/landscape shots.
-location photography for events and commercial purposes
-weddings, as a wide and close portrait/group lens when moving around is not an option.

Perfect for a hobby photographer to take on a stroll. It would more than deliver great results under wide ranging conditions... even on a crop sensor body the lens would provide a good focal range and a relatively decent weight ratio.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Walk around lens
Reviewed in India on April 1, 2015
Actually, i've upgraded from 24-105L with this lens. Even though the latter is a much preferred option as a walk around lens, that would suit a full frame body like 6D/5D etc but for a cropped sensor body like my 70D this is ultimate. fantastic tack sharp pictures, moderate wide to portraits and last but not the least 'macro' function is really superb. overall, i would say, this 24-70D is an ideal L grade all purpose lens.

Pros: No lens creep (has lens lock), great optics, weather resistant, macro capability, great price
Cons: None
