This new lens does what many pros thought couldn't be done - replace the previous L-series 28-70 f/2.8 lens with something even better. Extended coverage to an ultra-wide angle 24mm makes it ideal for digital as well as film shooters, and the optics are even better than before with two Aspherical elements and a totally new UD glass element. It's now sealed and gasketed against dust and moisture, and a new processing unit makes the AF faster than ever. Zoom System - Rotating type Filter Size - 77mm Max. Diameter x Length, Weight - 3.3 x 4.9, 2.1lbs. / 83.2 x 123.5mm, 950g Item includes - 77mm Snap-On Lens Cap; Lens Dust Cap E (Rear); EW-83F Lens Hood for 24-70 f/2.8L Lens; LP1219 Soft Lens Case, Canon 1-Year Warranty

Honestly, I'm not impressed with this wide angle. I found that it is heavy and bulky and not at all discreet. I opt to use the telephoto more often because of the quick shutter, stellar performance in low light and amazing sharpness. I never miss my shot when I use it. But this lens is not practical because I take candid street photos and I don't need to appear obnoxious while simultaneously ruining the integrity of the photo.
In the next few months i'm going to be at school studying photojournalism. I will need a wide angle that I am happy with. I'm looking at the 16-35 seeing as it is slightly smaller in dimension and lighter to carry. Or maybe if I buy the 6d and replace my midlevel body that will resolve my issues with the 24-70? Maybe if I shell out for the newer version of 24-70 that will resolve the issue?
Overall outside of buying a fixed lens (which is not a viable option) i'm not sure what to do and am hoping I don't have to settle for what I have now. For the most part I am posting here in hopes of receiving some feedback or thoughts from others who might have had similar struggles.

This lens also has an amazng depth of field. I can blur the background on photographs taken on shoots outside and it creates an amazing variety of backdrops that are not as distracting as my clients first expect them to be.
In fact there isn't really much I can say I don't like about this lens. It is a great size, not too heavy and an essential part of my professional kit. Most people think that photography is about the camera you have....it's not, it's all about the lens!
