Technical testing revealed slight colour fringing at the shortest focal lengths, which was a disappointment, but in all other respects the results were outstanding. Resolution peaked above 0.4 cycles-per-pixel and the MTF curves never once fell below the critical 0.25 cycles-per-pixel threshold.

The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM delivers the best image quality of any Canon standard zoom lens, but it's also an incredibly pricey standard zoom lens too. Although it features a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout the zoom range and is very usefully weather-proofed, the lack of built-in...

I admit that, while writing a summary of this test, my feelings are mixed. On the one hand I am pleased that the new lens is much better than its predecessor in almost all categories.

It seems Canon may be attempting to distinguish themselves from the competition by pricing their lens at a premium. There is no doubt that this lens delivers excellent optical performance in pretty much every way, but not many photographers, professional, or otherwise will be able to justify paying...

I got this as a replacement for my trusted 28-70 f2.8. I was skeptical of all the great reviews, but this lens has lived up to the hype. Tack sharp results when paired with my 1DX MKII.I would have preferred a better lens hood, seeing as it's a general purpose lens, I was expecting something similar...

DP Review

The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is a near-flawless lens with optics that come very close to matching a set of top-quality primes. With fast, accurate autofocus and weathersealed construction, it's difficult to find any really serious faults at all.

OpticalLimits

Fast standard zoom lenses are obviously very difficult to design. To date we never really thought "oh, this is it!". Unfortunately this also applies to the mighty Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 USM L II. Now this may sound worse than it really is.

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED is the lens for Nikon event shooters, but its not a perfect performer.

This is as good as it gets for an own-brand Canon standard zoom...

My go to lens used to be the 24-105 mm f/4 lens. After buying the 70-200 mm f/2.8 lens and this one I sold my 24-105 mm. Not necessarily a good idea. This lens does not have IS. so sometimes you need the f2.8 aperture to get the shot with the associated depth of field issues.

My best lens so far.

If I had to bring just one wedding to shoot a wedding it would be this one.

Perfect lens, sharp and fast, wide or close up saves carrying extra lenses
