The composition of this shot and the color tones are both amazing. Great shot.

Some I took with the 24-70L on 5D2 before I sold it to buy the 85L f/1.2 II . Great lense but too much massive to me!!

I've got it bad for this lens.   :P

I have the EF 24-105 f/4L which I love and use as my 'walking around' lens.  The 24-70 is bigger and heavier and overlaps the range of the 24/105, albeit faster. So, every time I'm about to hit the buy button on Amazon, I talk myself out of it because I just can't think of why I need the faster lens.  And now, with talk of an update,....

But I'm about to begin a project of photographing Saint Louis at night.  I want to spend a lot of the coming summer doing this.  My camera for this job will be the 5DM2.  Don't I REALLY NEED the 24/70 for that project?  My 50mm 1.4 won't be enough, right?  And the 24/105 is too slow, right?  In fact, maybe I need the new 5DM3 with the new 24-70 II?

The 24-105mm L was the first I bought for my 40D.  I tried five times to upgrade it to a 24-70L, and each lens had a worse IQ.  i tested them on sturdy tripods with mirror lockup and fast shutter speeds to get the best possible IQ.  The IQ was reasonably good, but not by comparison with my 24-70.  At the time I also had a 5D and the FF images looked better, as you would expect.  Finally, I gave up and still use my 24-105..

If you buy one, be sure that you can return it or exchange it a few times until you get a good one.  good ones can be great, but I never was able to find one.
I wasn't happy with mine at first but after a short trip to canon repair in new jersey its been my favorite lens. Others are sharper like the 70-200 F4IS but I find the 24-70 to be such a useful range with fantastic color and contrast.
