I picked up this Canon 24-70 f/2.8L sometime in March or April off of Craigslist and there’s a reason why this lens is so popular. Luckily, I scored it for $950 but had to drive down to San Antonio on a Monday night after work to get it. I used to run around with a 17-50 Tamron f/2.8 and I think the sharpness of pictures are really noticeable with the L glass. The colors are definitely more vibrant too. I find myself doing less color correction. I also use a 70-200 f/4L (non-IS) which isn’t technically mine… It’s Kristine’s, but she doesn’t really use her camera, lol. This lens is completely adequate for most outdoor situations. Forget about using it indoors. At least it’s nice and lightweight – as I’m told a 70-200 f/2.8L is pretty heavy. Anyway, here are some shots.
