This one was with the Kenko 36mm tube.

I will buy one, I was suppose to get a Heliopan HT, those are without filterthreads in front, and that is essential, the thinner the filter the less it affects vignetting, and the 24-70 mk2 is bad with vignetting, really bad imo.
You turn for every shot almost, well, not all, but if you flip the camera from horisontal to vertical, you need to turn to get the effect, but this goes without thinking after a short while.
DO NOT use a pol-filter as a replacement for a protector or UV, because it steals at least one stop of light, so might as well get a 24-105 instead.
I love pol filters, but beware of 24mm and pol filter, you will get very uneven polarization, still, I try to do a compromise and use it anyway,
However, I haven't manage to get the two lenses sold yet. I guess it will be even harder to get the prime sold when people realize that the 24-70 is on the same level/better apart from the f/1.4.
Use lack of vignetting and distortion as an argument to sell the 24, because at that it's much better. I still think 2.8 dof is a little too much, the AF and corner performance of the 2479 outweighs that a lot.
It took me a while to find the right AF settings with it and the 70-200, because they're SO fast the settings I used for my other lenses didn't work. I really like case 4 and -1 on sensitivity with those two lenses taking pictures of my kids.
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?
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....
Got mine today!
Ever consider the 24-105. About 1/2 the cost of the 24-70 II
How much post processing do you actually do or do you want something just straight out of camera?
