My Testing Canon 17-55 F2.8 APSC vs Canon 24-70 F2.8 i L Lens
« on: October 18, 2012, 12:09:14 PM »
I keep testing the 24-70 L because I am kind of disappointed with its performance compare with my APSC much cheaper lens.

This is my lens test of Canon 17-55 F2.8 APSC vs Canon L 24-70 F2.8 i.

I bought a second hand L lens from a shop because I just bought a full frame camera. Wanting to find out if the Canon L 24-70 F2.8 is as sharp as they all say I have conducted this simple test.

Both photos are taken on a Canon 60D in raw within an identical environment on a tripod trigger by timer to eliminate any chance of handheld shakiness. Both are taken at near their highest focal lens i.e. 55 for the Canon 17-55 & 65 for the Canon 24-70.

Shutter Speed – 1/40 sec
Aperture – 2.8
ISO – 400

I had similar results when I compared the two, the 17-55 actually seemed a bit sharper than the 24-70.
5DIII/5DII/Bunch of L's and ZE's, currently rearranging.
