Over the past three months I have been debating selling my 24-70 f2.8 L. It's a huge lens that weighs quite a bit. Hauling it around has been not so pleasant. So I consulted a friend of mine who has both of them. He was very high on the performance of the f4. The fact that it also has IS was a big selling point along with the fact that it is a lot lighter. So I finally decided to purchase the lens. I use the 24-70 f2.8 L lens every day and carrying around this beast on my Canon 5D Mk3 was pretty heavy. Here are some of my first shots with the new 24-70 f4 L IS.
Canon 5D MK3 w/24-70 f4 L ISIpswich MA. Macro mode on the 24-70 f4 L IS Overall I really like everything about this lens. The color is right on and it's sharp across the board even wide open (well it should be at f4). So far it's been great. My only concern has been the barrel distortion at 24 mm.
