If you are looking for a high quality, insanely sharp, professional lens and you have a bit of money in your pocket this is the lens for you. The redesigned EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is the latest update to the L-Series range from Canon. It has superb optics a high-end durable construction and is super fast.

Reasons to buy.
  • Fast F2.8 constant maximum aperture
  • Super sharp images all the way to the edge
  • Reduced flare/ghosting
  • Weather sealing
  • Light - only weighs 804.5g (much lighter than it's predecessor)

The 24-70mm 2.8L II standard focal length zoom features a large aperture throughout its focal length and has the latest advances in optical lens design which help minimize aberrations in the periphery at wide-angle as well as reduce colour blurring around the edges of the subject. In lamens terms you will achieve clearer, sharper, smoother images from edge to edge. You will find that this zoom lens is sharper than some fixed lens' which is relatively unheard of. 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. The ultrasonic motor enables silent autofocusing along with the CPU allowing fantastic speed. As many have pointed out it doesn't have the much sought after Image Stabilisation, however, don't be put off it's f/2.8 speed means that even without IS it minimilises distortion and obtains seriously clean images. It's a professional lens that is well built and hardy, Canon have even included weather proofing in the build and fluorine coatings on the lens surfaces to help reduce soiling, smears and fingerprints. Do a little light reading on the web about this lens you will find very few negative comments except perhaps the cost.

Having used HDEW Cameras before for the mk1 version of this lens i ordered the mk2 version along with the EF70-200 f2.8 mk2. Both lens was delivered in 2 days great service! The quality of the lens itself is excellent, the fast and near silent focusing makes this lens a must for my camera bag. The service, price and warranty means I will recommend HDEW Camera''s to others
