...not today but earlier in the week.
sweet lens. I was thinkin about that one for a while, but I went with the 24-105 for range, IS, and (mainly) because I got a good deal on it. Have you tried a 24-105..I haven't tried the 24-70 and am curious of the differences
Lens that extends at 24mm FTL.
i thought about the 24-105 because i wanted IS. the lens i sold to get this one was the EF-S 17-85 with IS and it came into use a lot.
i decided to get the 24-70 for a few reasons.
1. quality consistancy
2. wider aperture
3. going for a 70-200 later on and i don't want redundancy with my zooms
4. figured IS could be overlooked at these lengths and should work on technique to reduce camera shake.
doesn't bother me.
I was fortunate to get a 'good copy' and I find it to be quite sharp. 2.8 lenses are nice especially because they are supposed to focus better. For my needs, either lens would work fine as I don't generally need a faster aperture or IS, so I went with the lower cost at the time
It bothers me! Why does it have to be so damn sharp for?
eh looks ugly.
i'll trade you my pretty Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 for it..
PM me your information and i'll even send my lens to you first.
Hope yours doesn't have zoom creep like mines
its freakin weird.
Is having it vertical really a fair test?
Why is that such a big deal? Do you often just pick up your camera and trust it was where it was before and dont actually recompose the photo?
You pick it up, you make sure its zoomed and composed like you want and take the shot, not a big deal if you ask me.
Also who cares if it extends at the wide end? It does it all within the hood anyway, I dont even realize its changing size when using it.
Oh well. Everyone has their pet peeves I guess.
i like the lighting on the second 24-70 pic
I want that lens so bad
I'll probably just end up getting the tamron 28-75 2.8 though
Never said it was a big deal, just an annoyance. They can make a 70-200 and 16-35 internal zooming, would it be so much trouble to create a mid range zoom that does the same?
Who uses portrait orientation to photograph a car race!
I don't, talk to vwpilot
anyways I got bored @ work
well that was useful
we know how it works, its just unconventional and freaky.
I forgot to post this before I got off so I post it now
True but some people here might understand the 24-70.
