You mean it was
I put it in my cart last night and was going to purchase it today from Amazon and as I was going to check out I noticed the price had gone back to $3459. Not sure what gives with this. I love Amazon but they may have just lost a sale from me on this and the grip. I may have to go with BestBuy instead .was 3499 or whatever ..
now it is $3249
not the cheapest but price did drop
So long as you do the old DoF preview, decouple & twist, the 24-70 will be fine, although, fully manual lenses with manual iris, such as the samyangs, might be better, specifically for timelapse.
If you have a nice new 5D3 or 1DX do you really want to knacker it with timelapse? I bought a refurbed rebel for my timelapse camera.
Currently I own a 24L II, 50L and 70-200mm L IS II. I have barely ever touched the 24L as was thinking about selling both the 24L and 50L and buying a 24-70 II. What do you guys think? I do both video and stills and a lot of the times I would like to just have the flexibility of a zoom. Plus I could always pick up a rokinon cine 35 and 85 for the times I do video? What do you guys think ? This is on full frame btw
I personally would sell the 70-200 and buy more primes ;-)
I rented the 24-70ii two weeks ago to see what the deal was. My thoughts are if you are in the market for, or looking to replace, any two of the following three lenses: 24L, 35L, 50L, with the added convenience of a zoom then it's price is not too steep and probably right on. Essentially my feeling is this is a prime replacement zoom if you truly don't need the extra stops of light in a prime, but still want stellar IQ. You don't give up any sharpness, in fact I suspect you gain some. For just about anyone else either the mark I, or the be quite honest, the new Tamron 24-70, are probably more than adequate. I'm still on the fence as to whether I will order the new Canon simply because the Tammy does a good enough job and is far sharper than any 24-70i I ever used. The VC is a added bonus that does turn it into a very well equipped all around zoom. Prior I would have said the 24-105 is the best all around zoom on FF, but I suspect now I'd take the Tamron instead. What I lose in reach I gain in light and it means on family vacations I don't have to also think about packing a 50 1.4 and/or flash. I did however hate the reverse zoom, but I can live with that and the extra $1000 in my pocket pretty easily.
