Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM review by MartinM

Pros: Tack sharp, design, AF speed, IQ wide open
Cons: prica tag

I had now several standard zooms on Canon. All of them left much to deserve wide open.

When comparing with the Zuiko 14-35 and the Sony Zeiss ZA 24-70, no Canon standard lens was close to them.

Today I can positively remark, this Canon 24-70 made my day. It is sharp wide open and the focus is perfectly fast

The new design with the smaller hood is outstanding. The new designed zoom and focusing rings are perfect to handle even with gloves.

The missing IS might be the only drawback. But keeping in mind the ISO performance of my 5D III, the IS is no issue. For filming yes, to have IS is better.

The new 24-70L IS that will show up shortly, might be a very good alternative if you don't need f/2.8

Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM review by kinematic

Pros: Better vignette control, weather proof build, lens hood locks, superb image
Cons: 82mm filter thread

Simply the best zoom lens Canon has made.

Excellent improvements made over the previous generation and superb image quality. I never thought I would say this about a zoom, but best lens that Canon has made to date.

Pros are certainly in better vignette control, the weather proof build, locking lens hood, and image quality. Some might think a poly carbonate build is not better than metal. After dropping my 100L of the same kind of build 3 times, I can tell you this is better than metal.

Another concern some might make is the lack of IS. I have no issues that this doesn't have IS and kind of glad they didn't as it would have added weight to this lens which they tried hard to lighten up.

Here's where I share my images of from lens:
