Overview 

Meeting the ever-increasing demands on image quality that digital photography brings, the redesigned EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is the latest update to the acclaimed L-Series of EF optics, re-establishing a new standard for superb optics, high-end durable construction and performance in professional zoom lenses. A standard focal length zoom lens, it features a large aperture throughout its focal length. Featuring the latest advances in optical lens design, it utilizes 1 Super UD lens element and 2 UD lens elements that help minimize chromatic aberration in the periphery at wide-angle as well as reduced color blurring around the edges of the subject. In addition, 2 types of aspherical lenses are combined to help reduce spherical aberration over the entire image area as well as through the full zoom range. Optimized lens coatings also help ensure exceptional color balance while minimizing ghosting. The lens is also equipped with a circular 9-blade diaphragm for beautiful, soft backgrounds. A ring-type USM and high-speed CPU with optimized AF algorithms enable silent and fast autofocusing. Built for the rigors of professional use as well as to meet the increased number of shots available with digital photography, it's constructed with improved dust sealing and water resistance while fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens surfaces help reduce soiling, smears and fingerprints. A zoom lock lever locks the zoom position at the wide end for safe transporting while attached to an EOS DSLR camera over the shoulder.

Lens for Treet photography

Rated 3.0 out of 5 stars.

I primarily bought the Canon 24-70 f/2.8L II USM lens for studio sessions, but it is so versatile that I have started to use it for outdoor photography work as well. The flexibility of this zoom lens is amazing. Now that I use it for street photography, I’m starting to see all the difference between this lens and its predecessor. The most obvious improvement is in the color tones and contrast. It would’ve been nice if it was an IS lens, but all I can say is so far, so good. All the images taken on my tripod are very sharp and rich in colors.

I am a huge fan of Canon EF lenses, and the Canon 24-70 f/2.8L II USM lens is no exception. The lens is heavy but not overly so; pretty easy to handle and work with. However, the outer body feels a little fragile to me, but then it reduces the weight so I can’t complain. I just wish that the filter threads were metal instead of plastic, but the rest is good. As for the performance, the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens is true to all its claims. The images I have taken with this lens so far are very crisp, and the color contrast is great.

The color and sharpness that I get with the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens is simply mind blowing! I struggled a little with pulling the trigger when I first bought the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8, but soon got the hang of it and I’ve never looked back! This is better than the first version in terms of sharpness and color contrast. I know that a lot of people are let down since this is not an IS lens, but it is not really a big deal for me to be honest.

I am a wedding photographer, and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is an integral part of my lens kit. While I mostly use a Canon 50 mm f/1.2 for shooting weddings, the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L comes in really handy for shots that can’t be captured with a 50mm lens. Even though I mostly use the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens to shoot weddings, I must say that it is extremely versatile and suited for multiple types of photography. In a nutshell, I love this lens and would recommend this expensive but high-quality beauty to anyone!

Super Sharp Lens

Rated 4.0 out of 5 stars.

This is such a vast improvement over the first version. It is very sharp at all apertures. The elements in the lens greatly reduce spherical aberration, so now I get superior image quality throughout the zoom range. I can take this lens to the harshest of environments with its weather and moisture sealing. Auto-focusing is so fast with the new high-speed CPU and improved AF algorithms. The color balance is exceptionally good and hardly any ghosting in images. The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens is super sharp and quick! It is definitely pricey but well worth the money.

The elements are arranged in groups and may be seen in specification sheets as, for example, 6 elements in 4 groups. That configuration may have two single elements and the other four grouped in pairs.
