hi all
i just got my new 24-70mm from ebay brand new.. just one question.. i bought this instead of the 24-105mm because of the extra stop.. but i know they both have considerable distortion at the 24mm end.. does everyones have that distortion on average the same amount because of the wide angle? do most people have to fix these shots in cs2 with the lense correction filter every time?
I have it on my 5d..
Other than the lense is lightning quick and i really dont care about the weight like i thought i would.The contrast in the shots is absalutely superb.. i would highly recommend this lense to any one..

I'm using it on a 1.3x crop 1D and I almost always shoot at 24mm with this lens. I don't do any correcting myself. If there's any distortion it doesn't personally bother me.

Good luck, I'd love to use mine with a 5D sometime.
