I'm also interested. I just bought a 24-105mm and this lens was in the running, so I kind of need to read some negative reviews so I don't get buyer's remorse
I am not going to put much faith on that test. First, both lenses need to be taken at the same focal length. Second, they should use a full frame so corner sharpness can be determined. Who legitimately tests an L series lens on a cropped sensor anyways...?
well the lens is available in germany.. and reviews are not that good
Quote from: Freelancer on January 03, 2013, 02:39:24 PMwell the lens is available in germany.. and reviews are not that goodI'd trust resolution tests of 22 lenses more myself, especially from LensRentalhttp://www.lensrentals.com/blog/?p=11444They show it as comparable with the Tamron, sharper than both the 24-70 v1 and 24-105, and just below the 24-70 v2. He had a couple of copies that were weaker on the 70mm side, from decentering, so its possible the German tests were sample variation.
