I just picked up my 24-70 and it is disgustingly sharp! Just silly-sharp! Nice bokeh as well.

Built-in 5D Mark III HDR, Art Vivid. I like the results except for the transitions between sky and land (trees etc) - glow.


I'm not really seeing what you are getting at in that particular shot. Are you sure you have linked the right image?


Yes, I might have been a little unclear - the image is cropped to exclude the sky part as it looks bad. Which in hindsight might have been a bad idea since this thread is about the performance of the built in HDR function :)

Here is a truck I'm more happy about:

Thanks a lot guys! I will absolutely enjoy this lens, I can see it growing to be a part of my camera, lol.

Did afma today and at 24mm=+1 and 70mm=+3, I say that's REALLY good. AF accuracy is 99,4% with 20 testpoints, ridicolous!

Hopefully I get a chance to really try it out over the weekend.

For now, all I can say, if you're thinking about getting one, and you're not quuuuiiite sure it's worth it, forget all of that, it can't possibly get any better than this....

I just need to find a buyer for my 24/1.4L II first :)

Ever consider the 24-105.   About 1/2 the cost of the 24-70 II

No, simply because the IQ of that lens is below what I'm looking for. I made this thread to figure out if the IQ would suffer by going from 24/1.4II to 24-70II :)

How much post processing do you actually do or do you want something just straight out of camera?

I shoot raw and put all my photos through Aperture for basic corrections, I very rarely do anything that require PS though.

I have been using 24 mm (first the 24/2.8 and later L II) since I got my first FF camera (5D2) in 2009. I currently use 24/1.4L II (with 5D3) as my everyday prime and sometimes 40/2.8 when I want to be less conspicuous.

My third lens is the 70-200/f4LIS which I only use occasionally for portraits and wildlife (however, very limited range). Considering the fact that the new 24-70 is near-prime sharp, I rarely use apertures under 2 with the 24 (primarily landscapes) and the fact that I would not miss the 70-200 immensely (70-200 f/2.8 II next on the list) - I'm contemplating selling my two L lenses for the 24-70 mark II.

My basic goal is to have a more versatile kit, where I don't have to change the lens as soon as I need something between 24 and 70 mm. But still, with superb image quality.

I'm very interested what you guys think about this idea, would there be a noticeable drop in IQ at 24 mm and at landscape apertures? You who own both, do you find that your 24/1.4L II is obsolete with the 24-70 II?

It looks smaller than I imagined it, is that the 21" or 27"?

Nice video!

Maybe a little off topic, but how do you go about making those timelapses? Do you use some external trigger to get the pictures taken?

Question 2: Why isn't there such a function in the firmware? Is Canon being lazy?
