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

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!

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!

Oh the vexing annoyance of GAS,..I feel it quite often! Nice images though! Please post some more….I’m sure we would all like to see what it can do….and more images of the lens itself too!
