Title: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM
Post by: Dylan777 on September 27, 2012, 05:08:52 PM
My recent trip to Hong Kong, Lantau Island & The Peak. All pictures were shot with 5D III + 24-70 II.

Rented it myself this past weekend, super sharp, great bokeh, but I don't think I need it. My take is if you are considering two of the following 24L, 35L, or 50L and don't necessarily need the extra stops of light or need the flexibility of a zoom then this is the lens for you. In that context it's not terribly overpriced...in every other it probably is.

Love mine... Except it has a decentered element in it... Right side much softer than left. I sent to Canon and they basically told me they can't fix it. So it is going back and I will be getting an exchange.

Is it just me or that elephant is very pleased to see you?  ;)

Back to the pics - all I can say is wish I could swap my 24-105 for the new 24-70 - sigh

Some of these look better in wide gamut format, they were processed for that and the colors clip a bit here and these sRGB versions so they are not all quite what they should be.

Its certainly better than the five  24-70 mark I lenses I have had, but I don't know if its worth over 2X the price.  I have been using my 24-70L for product photography since I sold my 7D.
I tried out the 24-70 today, its totally worthless for product photography, at least the way I have been doing it.
 
So, I need to keep the 24-105, or get another crop body.  I have a fixed camera mount on my light table, and the 7D + 15-85 was perfect, while the 5D MK III + 24-105 was also a good match.
 
I'm in no big hurry, I've a ton of cameras and lenses.

I'm not sure if the lens or 5D III(maybe both), but your photos are so much better now - huge diff in IQ, better contrast and POP. So much better compared to your pre gear 7D + EF-S 17-55.

AWESOME ;)

Yes. The 24-70 2.8 II is one of my favorite lenses for daily use. If you buy it now you get 300 Euros Cash Back in Europe. For the 70-200 2.8 II you get also 300 Euros Cash Back.

I gave my new 24-70 a workout last night at a preliminary dress rehearsal for our spring Home School Play.  There are not many students in the school, so everyone gets involved, and they do a great job.
 
Because of the low light, I used aperture priority and took the whole evenings group of photos at f/2.8.  This is a bit of a step down, since I've been using wide aperture primes in the past, usually at f/1.8 to f/ 1.4.
 
I was particularly happy that this wide view at 24mm was sharp along the edges with minimal CA's.  I did see a few on the edges of the white dresses, but Lightroom took care of them.
I put the vignette on the image, just playing around with the LR settings, its still a preliminary photo since its the first night.

Sharpness corner to corner and colours and pretty low levels of distortion are the three most obvious advantages.
Current cost in Germany is a little over 1600 €, if cash back is factored in. Almost bearable ;-)
Be prepared to carry some extra weight though, is a great combo with my 5D3, but if gives you a well deserved extra exercise

Your signature shows you already have 50L & 135L, adding 24-70 II seems to be a good choice. That's just me of course ;)

For me, 85L II will be next, since I'm already have 24-70 II, 50L, 135L.

Nice shot.  For an ND grad rookie here: how did you orient and use a 3-stop ND grad with the tall 'horizon' created with those tourist binoculars in the foreground?  Do you have to mask out the binoculars and brighten the part shaded by the ND grad in post-processing?

Thanks. The volcano in that image is the smallest volcano in the world.  :) As for this lens, it is indeed worth of the investment.

Thanks. I rotated the filter to approximately 225° instead of the usual 180° orientation as I only aimed to darken the small patch of light. The telescope, on the other hand, was only partly shaded by ND grad filter. Thereafter I dodged the telescope to brighten it a bit, too. Cheers!  :)

Sweet shot Neuro, really nice bw convertion.

Thanks, Viggo!  I was in Philadelphia a couple of weeks ago, took the opportunity to walk through the Eastern State Penitentiary - pretty cool place, and the photos just beg to be converted to B&W...

Yes, a very nice shot.  I went there several years ago, when I had a Canon super zoom camera, and I somehow left it in the cab when we got back, and someone stole it. I am glad, as it prompted me to get a better camera, but I did lose all the images I made there.

Interesting note to those who haven't been:  this was where they shot the insane asylum scenes in the movie "12 Monkeys" with Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis.  They reprinted one "spoke" in the wheel design there and did some serious dusting.

Something about this image is very fascinating ... I guess its the subject and the way you captured it ... almost like a black and white. Well done.

I absolutely agree, for me it's the soft light on matte paint and that nice pop from a very sharp lens and not a lot of dof. It's parked car, and yet I keep looking at it and it's a sweet picture, weird, but cool !

How about one for fun?  This image shows my 5 day old 24-70 getting hit with a practice baseball.  The players are doing a ball handling drill more like hacky sack than baseball.  I'm pretty sure this shot is post hit, and I am pulling away.  Ball definitely hit the UV filter as it left a mark.

The lens is fine.  I'm not sure if the pod took the initial hit.  I am always afraid the UV filter will break and crush broken glass into the front element in a hit like this, but that did not happen.

It's pretty funny but I had wanted to buy a used 24-70 V1 for sports knowing there could be some rough and tumble, but the rebate on VII convinced me that was the way to go.  Still glad I have it, but this was a little scary.

The drill they are doing is interesting.  The ball is a full size baseball, but harder, a little like a cricket ball.  They even had small gloves for the drill as well.  This is in the Puerto Rico Winter League, sort of off season triple A.

Thanks.  I was returning from a jog in the park and came across the fire in its early stages.  I helped evacuate people in the next door building.  (A lot of yelling "It's not a false alarm! get the #$%^! out!)  Then turned to photography.  For some strange reason I took only my 5DIII and 24-70II, leaving a 7D, 8-15, 70-200 II and 580II in my camera bag in the car...  (adrenalin).  So I photographed a fire for 2+ hours in jogging clothing with only my camera in hand.

The weather sealing on my grip for zoom barrel portion of the lens has begun peeling off and is quite loose and floppy....has anyone else been experiencing this same issue as well?  :-[

Now here is a question:  What would be better value for the same dollar amount:  a Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC *PLUS* a Sigma 50mm ART *or* the Canon 24-70 2.8 ii?

I see praise for each lens but never a direct value comparison.

Stairway to Heaven.

Some Tibetan sherpas has been hired to build the stairs. It is very hard work, carrying these fairly large and heavy rocks up the mountain. This particular one is 1800 steps(!) But they make a full year Tibetan salary in two weeks, so they are not hard to ask.

Impressive shots Tex! Can you share some info on how you shot them?

Thanks!  And Sure!
I developed this technique myself.  (It is ridiculously simple)  Sort of a cross between motor driving and time lapse.
1. Set camera to Tv, 30 sec exposure.  M would work fine too.
2. ISO 100
3. Aim, Focus, Use a cable release that can be locked on.  Lock it on.
4. Drink beer and hope for lightening.  Adjust aim as best location may change.
5. I will usually dial in -2 to -4 exposure compensation because the camera is metering when there is no lightening.

Essentially I am letting the camera record 30 seconds exposure continuously.  In 30 minutes, you will take 60 photos.  And maybe get 3-4 keepers.  As this is so hands off you can easily work with 2-3 cameras at a time.

One thing about lightening photos is you must capture more than just lightening.  (Fireworks are this way too)  You must have ground objects to establish scale, and give some context.  The clouds really helped me here too. 

In post I adjusted color and added a lot of clarity.   If you have 2+ plus photos with strikes in each, and you did not move the camera, you can stack them in Photoshop and set top layers to lighten. This will add the strikes together nicely.  The middle photo is actually 2 photos combined this way.   

Oh and be safe.  I am standing on my 25th floor balcony here with 2 more floors of building and a lightening rod above me.  Don't stand on top of a mountain for a good veiw and get fried!

So I finally got a half decent panorama.  It's from the balcony of my room at the Me_Me_Me International Beach Resort in Miami.  It was a business trip and for some unknown reason, they upgraded me to a room with a huge balcony including a hot tub!  Needless to say I didn't ask why...  Shot during golden hour at around 50mm, 9 photos stitched together using my RRS pano kit.

... Fence was unavoidable.

I've shot through fences like that. If you get your lens close enough to the fence (I actually place the end of the lens hood up against the chain link) and center your front element in one of the openings, it will blur out the fence to the point that it's almost invisible.

Thanks!  I adjusted in post using DxO's perspective tools.  I had some optically corrected shots with the TS-E 17mm which worked well for the façade of the cathedral, but the framing was too wide when I tried it for the above shot (I didn't bring the TS-E 24 on the trip).

Nicely done. I like the way you've left just a little perspective convergence. Pitty about the scaffolding but they seem to be having a blitz on repairing these old monuments in England and France at the moment.

Thank you!  I find a slight undercorrection gives the appearance of a little more height.  I often do the same with a shift lens. 

Yes, lots of monuments with scaffolding during our trip – particularly churches.

Here couple of full resolutions images done with Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM mounted on Sony A7R.
One shot is just general view of some nice place.
Second shot is a test for lens purple fringing, chromatic aberration against direct sun with extreme scene DR.  Such test is very challenging for many lenses.
Both shots illustrates how good Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, especially with high quality, high-resolution digital back (Sony A7R) attached to this lens for still shots.
EXIF data is preserved in each image.

All shots done hand-held and as seen on picture this does not affect system resolution - this comments to some threads discussing that tripod usage  requirement to achieve  best possible resolution.

Bought a used copy of the lens for a steal as I'm going to Israel next week and I want the speed over my 24-105/4L

Took it out for quick test this afternoon at the gun club (my other big hobby):

Some great looking images.  I missed the ocular (?) light in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre on my visits to Jerusalem.  My last trip my Tamron 24-70 VC was my best friend.  So many cool things to shoot in Israel!

Hesitant to add these, but they do show what the lens can do just for fun, for family snapshots.  Until you travel with a baby, you really can't imagine how little time you have for photography.  No matter how beautiful the landscape, jump out of the car, grab a shot, move on.  If you know what's good for you.   ::)  Cades Cove and the Gatlinburg Ripley's Aquarium, earlier this month.

The third picture was taken at Flamborough Head near Filey in England. The black and white on is from there too. I hardly got to spend any time at the location, unfortunately, but it is a very cool area.

I've had more weddings booked this year than I really want, hard to be on the road so much... good to be busy but also killing any of my free-time work. A break is coming next weekend and in mid may I get a few days off so I'll be doing more concept work for my personal port.

Thought I'd another 24-70 II images. One of my favorite 2.8's and also one of favorite models. Yumi and I have worked together numerous times in the last 3 years. She is absolutely gorgeous and super fun to work with. We are booked for a boudoir shoot in May so I thought I'd go over some old images from previous shoots.

Packing for a much needed vacation but had a great shoot with my two favorite models about a week ago. Loved getting a call that I've been "hired" by both of them to do this... never worked all together and it was damn fun. Brought about 8 lenses to the studio and used only 1 for 95% of the shots. My much loved 24-70 II.

You captured the spirit and rarely seen beauty of the monuments.  I went to college and grad school at GWU which was right there.  The pics brought me back.  Thanks for making me feel young again.  Great shooting.

Beautiful landscape work Neuro.  I'm in awe of your ability to tote the heavy hardware on vacation. :)

I pretty much sold all of my Canon lenses since getting this lens!
