The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is an improved version of a respected wide-aperture lens, but how does it perform?

The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is a near-flawless lens with optics that come very close to matching a set of top-quality primes. With fast, accurate autofocus and weathersealed construction, it's difficult to find any really serious faults at all.

  • +

    Superb, almost flawless optics, Impressive flare resistance, Fast, silent, and accurate autofocus, Excellent build quality including weathersealing

  • -

    Unpleasant vignetting in the 50-70mm region at F2.8 on full frame, Noticeably lower image quality at close focus distances, No image stabilisation, Very expensive

The latest in a line of storied lenses going back to the 28–80mm f/2.8–4L of April 1989, this is Canon’s fourth high-speed, full-frame, standard-range, L-series autofocus zoom. The previous 24–70mm f/2.8L was introduced in November 2002, and compared with that lens, this version II ($2,299, street)...

I recently upgraded from an 8-year old Olympus DSLR with a kit lens to a Canon 6D body and this lens. Sure, the lens is pricey, but wow, I was blown away by how much better my images look with superior glass.

    Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

The old 24-70 f/2.8L was a good lens. I shot many weddings and events with it. This is Much better. Very little distortion. Much sharper throughout the zoom range, with only extreme corners being somewhat soft. But if you stop down for landscapes, this is not an issue.

  • +

    Sharp, very useful zoom range, constant 2.8 aperture, very-well made, no zoom-creep with the lock switch, beautiful colors and contrast

  • -

    Little distortion at widest focal length, lens hood doesn't fit perfectly, pricey (but worth the price)

13 April 2015

Decided to buy canon 24-70 ii after reading lot of good reviews and I am satisfied so far. It would be great to have image stabilization, but I am ok even without that considering weight and price premium.

  • +

    Image quality, build, 2.8 max aperture, AF speed

  • -

    Expensive , no stabilization, hood design

I had the same lens from a competitor off brand and had such inconsistent results, I decided to go all in on this lens. So happy I did. Worth all the money. I shoot a lot of low light, action events and have been totally happy with it.

Debated over buying this lens for a long time. Wanted as complement to my EF 70-200 f2.8. This is the perfect complement lens. Recently traveled to east coast and brought this lens with, along with my go to travel lens, a Tamron 18-270. Never even took that lens out of the bag.

  • +

    Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Good walk-around lens, Great Clarity Of Image, Great Range, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction, Superb Portraiture

Wow! This lens is awesome...fell in love with it after my first photo session with it. Portraits are so rich in color and contrast. Bought this lens to replace my Tamron 28-75mm, which was my go to lens for weddings. Definitely worth it!

The build quality of this lens is apparent from the moment you set hands on it. The manual zoom function is solid, smooth, and consistent though it's auto focus ability is what I find truly exceptional. It's very fast, almost punchy and superbly accurate.

I suppose the IS is not needed in a wider lens due to the focal length, but I can see it being useful at 70mm.

  • +

    Typical canon sharpness build quality and reliability. I have all canon glass and this purchase recently is one of the few lenses I didnt have to bridge the gap between the ultra wide and the super long stuff.

  • -

    No IS.

Only my Canon 70-200L f/2.8 IS II is sharper! Clean and sharp corner to corner. Crazy color rendition! One of my most-used lenses. I do wish it had Image Stabilazition, other than that it's 5 stars every time!

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 zoom lock lever locks the zoom position at the wide end for safe transporting while attached to an EOS DSLR camera over the shoulder.
