The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is surprisingly pricey ($2400) so everyone wants to know how well this lens performs (previously featured reviews here and here). Now it's slrgear's turn to review this Canon lens. Some excerpts from their test:
- The Canon 24-70mm ƒ/2.8L II USM is one of the sharpest lenses Canon has produced
- The Canon 24-70mm ƒ/2.8L II USM keeps chromatic aberration very well under control
- Going from infinity to close-focus takes well less than one second, and point-to-point focusing is lightning quick
From slrgear's conclusion:
Canon has made dramatic improvements to this lens series, which is sure to become the darling of Canon wedding shooters around the globe. The price tag is significantly steep, but there are enough improvements over the previous lens to more than justify the price.
