This is the most incredible lens I’ve ever used.
I’ve shot with dozens of lenses over the years but I was lucky enough to get my hands on one for a recent engagement shoot I did over the weekend and it blew me away.
It is the sharpest zoom lens I’ve ever seen. It even keeps up with the sharpness of a lot of prime lenses. I was using it primarily on a Canon 5D MKIII and here are some of the results.
Now I understand this is the most expensive lens of it it’s kind (mid-range zoom at 2.8) but it’s absolutely worth it. You can pick it up now at B&H for just $1699. This lens will be living on my body 99.9% of the time from here on out.
For this shoot I also brought my Canon 85 1.2L II, Canon 70-200 2.8L, and Sigma 35 1.4 and almost didn’t use them because I had such great light and the image quality of the 24-70 2.8L II, was just too amazing.
I’m shooting a band tonight in a very dimly lit venue so I’m excited to see how it performs. Check back for more.
