A Very Good Lens Posted by: from: Louisville on First off, I have shot extensivly with this lens and its' big brother, the 24-70 f2.8 L II, the latter being INCREDIBLE, the images are so sharp from the f2.8 II version that you can cut yourself. Having said that this lens is not at all a bad lens, it is, in fact quite good, however it will always be compared to the f2.8 II version and when you do that the f2.8 wins every time. The quality of images coming from this lens is excellent to outstanding, where the 2.8 II is outstanding to incredible. This lens is well built, has image stabilization which helps ALOT in handheld situations, a focal length is very useful and a klunky macro mode that I have yet to use as I have dedicated macro lenses that are sharper. I have no doubt that this lens will spend alot of time on my camera this Summer as over the past few weeks I have already gotten some outstanding images using it, however for the price I was hoping for more. If this lens were priced at around $800-900 that would be fair, as it is currently priced, it is very expensive and not an excellent value for the money, but it is also very well built and very useful and a very, very good lens, my rating is actually 4.5 stars but there are no halvsies on this site so there it is.

Great lense if you can't afford the f/2.8 Posted by: from: Texas on This is a great lens. I'm reestablishing myself as a photographer after some personal time away and working on rebuilding my lens collection. Having used this original 24-70 f/2.8, this lens is very comparable in quality. If you don't need the extra stop of light, this is great lens choice. As an added bonus, it has a macro mode. If you've ever wanted to explore the macro world, this lens would serve great as an "all purpose" lens.

From EFS 18-55mm to EF 24-70mm Posted by: from: Philadelphia, PA on Very pleased with the lens, which is my 1st upscale lens after the standard EFS 18-55mm that came with Canon T3i camera. Very solid construction, when compared to the plastic EFS 18-55mm.

Amazing lens Posted by: from: Pigeon Forge, TN on The family and individual portraits that I have taken have been perfect. Everyone has raved about them. The IS on this lens is my favorite part! I can be moving around, when following a newly walking baby and still capture them perfectly.

The one go to lens for me. Posted by: from: Oregon on I was in search of a high quality lens for my canon DSLR. I wanted something that I could carry on hikes and would be compact and versatile. It is a good overall lens and well built. It has survived 2 overnight trips and 6 day hikes. It has provided some outstanding photos. Once on sale it is a bit more easier to swallow price wise.
