It'd been 9 months and only a handful of images.

We'd better do something about that then  ;)

This lens is great. I agree to others and would not pay the regular price for this lens. But I got a deal for $879 after mail in rebate and I do not regret it. I also own the 100 F/2.8 L macro, but on my recent trip the macro function of the 24-70 F/4 was useful as I hesitated to switch lenses at the beach.

Attached picture was taken with the lens and Singh Ray Vario Duo filter at max attached.

I don't expect this gallery to be very large.


Don't be too sure of that RL, this is a cracking lens, all be it loo expensive at the moment.


This lens was too expensive when released, but has been available under $1k recently, which makes it a decent value.  I borrowed one from a friend to try out for an afternoon and really liked it.  I used to own a 24-105 and currently have a 24-70 2.8 II.  I like the small size and close-up capabilities of the 24-70 f/4 IS.  The 2.8II feels twice as heavy...  t's also sharper with less distortion at the important 24mm end than the 24-015.

I expect the street price to drop further so it approaches the 24-105 prices.  When that happens, there will be lots more of these around, and more pictures in this gallery.

Nice shots Sporgon!

Nice shots Sporgon!

Thanks ! :)

You're right, the price difference was too great but it's beginning to come in to line now.

Makes a great partner for the 6D

After dropping my beloved 24-105 and denting the filter ring, I gave it away and bought this lens. No regrets. I was happy with the former lens, but if one is deciding between the two this one is the way to go. It has better stabilization, less barrel distortion at 24mm, and a macro mode that is much more useful than most forum members credit. I got it just in time for last weeks trip to the coastal redwoods of northern California. Here is one example, edited in Photoshop Elements and Nik Color Efex.

I find this lens to be very versatile, especially useful if you only have the opportunity to take the one lens (such as a day out with the family).  This was taken in the Butterfly house at the National Botanical Garden of Wales, Canon 6D, Handheld.

Don't regret  buying it with my 6D 3 years ago but have used it as more of a walk-around snap-shot lens and as a result it didn't factor much in posting to CR. Of course that's partly because the vast majority of my postings have been birds. ;)  It was never, "wow this is a spectacular lens", like I viewed the 300 2.8 II purchased at the same time.  My choice was influenced by the handy macro capability.  I liked it for 24 so when I bought the 11-24 its use diminished somewhat - still it's smaller and lighter and less hassle.
