New lens, Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM

I’ve just acquired a new Canon L-series lens for my full-frame EOS 5D MarkII, the famous EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM. First impression: very sharp, fast autofocus, controlled vignetting (as usual some issues at the ends, specially around 28mm), solid, heavy (950g…), interesting focal length range – will take it with me for the coming holidays in August.

Post-production with DxO Optics Pro 6 Elite, which has a specific module for the combination Canon EOS 5D MarkII + the Canon EF 24-70mm L.

One thought on “New lens, Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM

  1. Very nice (and expensive) lens. On my side of the pond – meaning the yellow side rather than the red one – I chose to go with a second-hand third-party lens instead of the equivalent lens (the Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8). I have been impressed so far by this good old Tokina 28-70 f/2.8 and have been wondering what exactly I have been missing, if any.
    I am eager to hear your impressions and see the resulting pictures after your vacation ;-)
