Lenses / Re: Upgrade or not the 24-70 f/2.8, a thousand dollar question.
« on: December 27, 2014, 10:50:46 AM »
Hi martti,
I just received my 24-70 II about a week ago. I absolutely love it. I am up enthusiastic amateur and pondered for several several months about getting this lens as it is expensive.  I sold several items in my bag to offset the cost of the lens but I couldn't be happier. The IQ is amazing and the AF is fast! Now, it's a new toy for me, but It has not left my camera body and I see it staying there for quite some time. One downside to this lens is the filter size. But that's just how things go sometimes. Again, I couldn't be happier with the lens!

I'll be honest I really don't care for video features if I want to do video I'd buy a dedicated video camera. for stills I would prefer 1/250 flash sync (or even faster). A few more MP to get better resolution and better noise handling.
+1000!

There's one clear cut want for me: dynamic range at least equal to what the Sony sensors deliver.

I would also like the best ever noise performance seen at ISO 100.

That's it. I'd be happy with that.

I would also like to see >40 MP
+1, +1

crap!...I always miss this.  Have been waiting to pick up a 24-70 II and I'm always minutes too late!

There are smart phone apps that notify you when a product is in stock, and, if you have your Canon account all setup and ready, you have a pretty good chance.  But, those 24-70's that were restocked today sold out in minutes.
Cool!, any you recommend for iPhone? that would be great!

How have QVC missed this rare talent?

Gosh!, I just about spilled my morning coffee on that one!, hilarious!

I tell you, the more and more I use this lens, the more I'm tempted to go back to a FF Zoom Trinity as my main setup (with macro as the exception)

Very Happy!

+1
Yep!, I'm considering that also!

Trouble is, I'd have to sell 2 lenses (Sigma 35, 24-105)to buy one (24-70 2.8 Mk2)

I know!, I'm selling my 24-104 and a few primes to offset the cost of a 24-70 2.8 II. The 16-35 & 24-70 are awesome !

Lucky for him that he's an Internet personality.  If you straddle a fence like that in real life, it's painful...especially if there's barbed wire on it.

I had my 17-40mm for a long time. It was my most used lens, but always thought it was a bit soft. Never thought the 16-35 2.8 II was much of an upgrade for IQ and didn't want/need the speed.  I sold it and got the new 16-35 f4. What can I say.....it's fantastic!

I feel your GAS pain Valvebounce! I tried one out through CPS. My 5DIII work just fine for what I do, but man was it a lot of fun. I concur with Neuros advice. Me, maybe I will get a second job. If you do, enjoy and have fun! Frankly, life is too short!, buy it!
