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.

well im not going to timelapse all the time .. just something I have always been interested in but have never done. As far as the samyangs .. i might pick up the cine modded ones for video as well as timelapse i guess

10s timelapse = between 240 and 300 frames depending on your movie frame rate.

Can add up quite quickly.  Not just on the shutter, but on the aperture blades.
