The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Lens is an impressively high performing zoom lens.I regard it as one of the best general purpose lenses available and for the same reasons, it is one of the most-professionally-used Canon lenses.The 24-70 L is as good as it gets in this focal length range.

The 24-70 L shown above sầu is mounted lớn a Canon EOS-1D Mark III.

The Canon EF 24-70milimet f/2.8L USM Lens is a very sharp lens - few zoom lenses reach this cấp độ of sharpness.The 24-70 L is sharp in the center at f/2.8 at all focal lengths và performs very well in the corners.Some corner softness is visible at the wide kết thúc of the focal length range và more softness is apparent in the 50-70mm corners.As usual, stopping down (selecting a narrower aperture) khổng lồ f/5.6 makes a big difference in the longer focal length corners.

The wide open 24mm corners are most-affected by vignetting.Vignetting is very well controlled, but apparent in the corners at f/2.8 at 24milimet on a full frame toàn thân.Vignetting improves as the focal length increases và the aperture is narrowed.At comparable apertures, the 24-70 L shows less vignetting than the also-excellentCanon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens- a typically-expected result when comparing a fast lens to a slower lens.

Like most 24-xx zoom lenses, the 24-70 L shows some barrel distortion on the wide over.More specifically, a bulge in the middle of the frame.Barrel distortion disappears around 35milimet.A very slight pincushion distortion begins at 50milimet and becomes moderate by 70milimet.

Color, contrast & saturation are excellent.CA (Chromatic Aberration) is very well controlled - especially for a zoom lens.The wide 8-blade aperture produces a nice chất lượng background blur & a nice amount of it.

Prime lenses (fixed focal length lenses) are often compared favorably lớn the 24-70 L.They are generally less expensive, smaller, lighter, faster (aperture) and very sharp.My personal preference is for zoom lenses for my photography applications in this focal length range.To me personally, the ability to change framing instantly far outweighs the slight image quality advantages fixed focal length lenses offer over the 24-70 L.

I"m often asked - can images shot with a consumer zoom lens be post-processed to result in images similar to 24-70 L images?The answer is: you can adjust contrast & saturation, but you cannot add missing detail.And, color can be very difficult lớn match later.So, using a better lens will usually result in better post-processed images.Most primes và L lenses are noticeably better than consumer zooms.

Image chất lượng is not the only pro-grade feature of the Canon EF 24-70milimet f/2.8L USM Lens.Excellent AF is part of the equation.A Ring USM (Ultrasonic Motor) AF system delivers quiet, fast and accurate autofocus.The 24-70 L"s f/2.8 aperture enables the enhanced-sensitivity of many Canon EOS DSLR body"s AF points.As usual for a Ring USM AF system, FTM (Full-Time Manual) focusing is enabled.The 24-70 L does not extkết thúc with focus và the 77milimet filter ring does not rotate.

The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Lens" MFD (Minimum Focus Distance) is about best (shortest) in class even without an extension tube.This short focus distance provides a very nice MM (Maximum Magnification).While not cthua thảm to a 1:1 macro lens, the 24-70 L can take nice flower shots, hàng hóa pictures ...Although it is not compatible with Canon"s extenders,extension tubes will extend the 24-70 L"s macro capabilities.Canon"s extension tube offering are the FE 12mm extension tube andEF 25mm extension tube.The Canon 500D is a close-up lens that attaches to lớn the filter threads -it also allows closer focusing distances - sorry, I don"t have the spec for this one.

Sporting a red Canon L Series Lens ring,the 24-70 L"s build unique is also, as expected, top of the line.Though not light, the 24-70 feels solid, is comfortable to handle and has a logical layout.The focus và zoom rings are nicely-sized & operate smoothly.Weather sealing (when attached lớn a weather sealed body) completes the physical chất lượng package.

The Canon EF 24-70milimet f/2.8L USM Lens tips the scales at 33.6 oz (950g) - about một nửa more than it"s closest Canon competitors, theCanon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens & theCanon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS USM Lens.Of course, the 17-55 gains its advantage by not delivering a full frame 35milimet image circle (being an "EF-S" lens) and by having a lesser build quality.And the 24-105 allows only 1/2 as much light through its body toàn thân at wide open aperture (f/4 vs. f/2.8).

The 24-70 L"s 77milimet filter diameter makes sharing filters(such as a circular polarizer filter)with most of Canon"s other L-Series zoom lenses easy (& more affordable of course).

Because the 24-70 L lens hood is in a fixed position (it does not extend/retract), the objective lens retracts deeper into lớn the hood as the focal length is increased.In other words, the 24-70 L lens hood extends much farther from the objective sầu element of the lens at 70milimet than at 24mm.The 24-70 L is using an appropriate-for-the-selected-focal-length lens hood at all focal lengths while the 24-105 và most other lenses are using a made-for-24milimet hood at all focal lengths (lượt thích most zoom lenses).

24-70milimet falls right in the middle of the general purpose lens focal length range.The Canon EF 24-105milimet f/4L IS USM Lens Đánh Giá has a helpful focal length comparison that includes this range.

Though not ultra-wide on a 1.6x FOVCF body toàn thân, 24mm is noticeably wider than the 28mm minimum focal length provided by lenses such as the discontinuedCanon 28-70 f/2.8L Lens and some of Canon"s consumer zooms such as theCanon EF 28-135milimet IS USM Lens (a good value lens).

The real world uses for the Canon EF 24-70milimet f/2.8L USM Lens are endless.

The 24-70 L is the bread and butter wedding lens for many professional photographers.The 24-70mm focal length range allows a large group shot or a close-up picture of the bride without a lens change.With a fixed maximum f/2.8 aperture across the entire focal length range, this lens is easy to lớn use và is as fast (wide aperture) as any Canon zoom lens made.Available light shots are possible indoors including in most churches (though a high ISO setting will usually be required).Wide open camera settings do not change with the focal length - allowing the photographer khổng lồ focus on getting the job done.

As portraits are a staple of wedding photography, the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Lens makes a great portrait lens.On a full frame body toàn thân, group, environmental and moderately tight portraits work best.Some pincushion distortion at 70mm will even slim your subject a little. :)70mm is too wide for a tight head shot - for my taste at least.Save sầu those for the 70-200 L.On a 1.6x body, more space is needed for group photos at 24milimet, but tighter 70mm portraits are more pleasing due khổng lồ the longer distance they will be framed from.

Since shooting a wedding is not too dissimilar from photojournalism (và many wedding photographers employ similar techniques),the 24-70 L is a great photojournalism lens.

Indoor & low light sports photographers are often working in similar conditions as wedding photographers & photojournalists.Thus the 24-70 L is often employed for sports needs in this focal length range.Since sports action is usually moving fast, the f/2.8 aperture is often the minimum opening necessary lớn stop action at these venues.

The Canon EF 24-70milimet f/2.8L USM Lens will work just as well in your home as it does in the church or other indoor venue.Capturing the memories of family life is, in my opinion, one of the most important photography pursuits.You can sell the lens later, but those precious family moments will never be baông xã.

The 24-70 L is a very good landscape lens on a full frame body toàn thân.It will work fine on a crop body, but 24milimet is a little long for the wide over of a dedicated landscape lens.Add a Canon EF-S 10-22milimet USM Lens khổng lồ your 24-70 L kit if landscapes are your goal.Or get the EF-S 17-55.

The biggest downside of the 24-70 L (in my opinion) is it"s form size & weight.Especially with its large lens hood, this lens is not small - or light - when used as a walk-around lens. If you care about your image chất lượng, you will quickly get over this downside after reviewing your results.

All said, I think the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Lens is one of the best Canon walk-around/all-purpose lenses made.Be sure to lớn read the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens Review và, if you are using an EF-S capable body, theCanon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens đánh giá before making your decision.
