    Comments about Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L USM AF Lens with LensCoat Lens Cover & Hoodie (Black):

    Had this lens for ~2 years, noticed that for some reason there are no reviews so had to write one. 24-70 lens is great on either full frame (5d or 1d) or crop sensor (40d etc) camera - with benefits from either format at wide or tele ends respectively. Favors portraits on crop camera and scenics/architecture on full frame but works great on either format (I use both). I use it for walk around and catching photo opportunities at home. It is reasonable size with excellent build quality - sturdy and with comfortable heft. On vacation, used the lens for a variety of shots including scenery and family on 5d. Excellent sharpness and color rendition. Some of my favorite family candids using available light from windows via f2.8 were captured weekends at home with this lens. Great complement to wider and longer zooms - my travel pack always contains this lens. Maybe not as good for scenics as 16-35 or wide prime, clearly not as appropriate for field sports as 70-200 or longer lenses, but when used as above is excellent. In my opinion, shows comparable image quality (sharpness, color rendition) to either of these lenses. While traveling / walking around perhaps more convenient and appropriate than the other lenses mentioned (especially the longer lenses). No significant negatives and haven't missed image stabilization (not included this lens) due to f2.8 capability using higher iso. I have recommended this lens to friends
