Just a couple of playtime pic's with the new 24-70 mk2, that lens and the 70-200 mk2 turn me back to being that zoom-guy instead of that prime-guy...

Well canon called me today and they are collecting it tomorrow,should have it next week,now i am worried about oil and whether it will still be properly weather sealed when i get it back do you think they could mess that up?

Correct my if I'm wrong but I think they will use the lens mount to enter the camera and get
It done so they won't actually loosen a single screw and therefor the weather sealing is untouched.

The oil splatter, well, that is pretty much a guess. Be sure to run your camera at 12 fps and really make it work so you can see as soon as possible if it splatters.

I think I will just use until it breaks and get a replacement shutter instead.

So they will just lubricate it or replace something ? I guess we'll see some oilsplatted sensor if lube is all they will do to fix this  :o

Is it a fact that all discontinued lenses will also be discontinued for repair? If not, how long does it usually take? I know there are a few 24-70 mk1's out there  ::)

If Canon sacrificed IS in the new 24-70 to make it what it is, (pretty insane) then, -- My God, can you imagine the IQ of a NON-IS 70-200?? Wow, you would have to print on metal only, the images would shread paper...

Take care with the setup, and make sure your doing all things right, target, sturdy surface, do not move the cam, keep it around 10 ev, no less and not a lot more.

I used Focal for the 24-70 II yesterday and it's the first time it has been way off! It said -5 at 70mm and +5 at 24mm, but it's clearly best at "0" at all focals. I've adjusted a lot of lenses and Focal has always been right, so I'm doing a retest today.

On a happy sidenote this copy is both sharper and more accurate AF (2012) than the 2013 copy.

Funny things are going on.

A few days ago I test two lenses in a store, because a friend want buy the lens.

1 lens: ugly sound if I change the focal lenght
2 lens: different visible distorsion at 24 mm with the same settings

Both errors are well known errors from the first days of the lens. It´s a shame that Canon have the same big problems with the mass production after one year.

Conclusion:
If I look at many Canon products introduced in the last years I notice, that Canon have huge problems with the product quality and to produce new innovative cameras and lenses that are worth the money you pay for it.

Which style of lenscaps did the two have? (Center-Pinch= 2013, Old style= 2012)

One thing to consider with this lens is that it has quite a bit of distortion and vignetting(also long end) at the wider end, almost surprising or I  might be very spoiled with the 24 L II.

And a question here. I feel that even at +100 in the vignetting correction I lightroom, the corners are still in need of correction, how do I apply more than +100? :P

I got the store to cancel my purchase and got it somewhere else. I got the 2012-edition this time, old style lens cap, which I love. And the mechanics feel MUCH better! No Noise, no squeaky AF and if anything this is even sharper at all focals.

I got an explanation from the rep guy as to what causes the noise (please note I'm simply quoting him as I have no idea about this myself)

He said there's a brass or copper band around the inner barrel that has a brush mounted to it that reports focal length to the camera. And he had taken in 5 (!!) 24-70 2013 editions with the same exact problem. And he said that brush is simply mounted to hard so that it grinds, it's nothing faulty, and it would loosen up and become normal. He understand fully that I didn't want to wait to "break it in" so I simply got my money back.

Just checked the store where I bought it from, and they are sold out of 24-70's. That means they don't have one to swap with mine, greeeaat.... I'm going to sound whiny now, but ever since I started photography the only things I buy new are camera bodies, lenses I have always bought used except for a very select few times, and EVERY SINGLE TIME I have had loads of trouble and had to exchange and send for repair and swap ... I'm never buying new lenses again :P I must've owned 30-40 lenses, 98% used, and not had one single issue with any of them....

I will pop by the store tomorrow and I'll update this thread. Fingers crossed the IQ of a replacement is the same as this one as it is REALLY good :D

Hi guys!

Instead of completely highjacking another thread I'll post a new topic.

Does everybody experience a very slight frequent "tick.tick,tick" noise when turning the zoomring of the 24-70 mk2?

It's spanking new, only very slight afma was needed (+1 to +3) and AF works perfect, the zoom turns smoothly otherwise. I just want to make sure it's nothing wrong.

Don't know if this has any bearing on anything. Just something I experienced  :o

Thanks!

Huh how funny, I've just returned a copy that had exactly this issue! The replacement copy I've just got is perfect. In fact this is my third copy. The first return was due to a decentering issue and second one had the 'tick, tick, tick' sound you mentioned. New one appears to be a keeper with no issues.

It's a really weird sound isn't it? difficult to describe.
Personally if you can I'd get a replacement.
Out of interest did your copy come with the new center pinch lens cap or the old style?
The first copy I had was the old style, the new one I've got is old style too but the one I've just sent back with the 'tick, tick, tick' sound was the new center pinch cap. The only significance this really has is that if it's got the new cap it was made from the beginning of this year. Old style caps mean the lens was made last year.

Hm, yeah, replacement it is :P It's the center-pinch cap on mine.

hmm weird huh. maybe there's a new dodgy batch going around. or maybe they've changed something with the sealing in the newer production of the lens. could be totally inconsequential of course  :P

Really weird... My initial thought was that since it is brand new it will pass over, but reading your replies, I'm not very convinced it will, and I noticed it straight away, and have never experienced it with any other lens.
