I've been coveting this lens for quite some time now...finally took the plunge since I've got my brother's wedding coming up and that gave me a good excuse. Plus Canon double rebates, I could justify it. I'm really excited...I can't wait for it to get here!

I've had mine for about 9 months and it's my bread and butter lens... I use it more than all my other lenses combined.

I'm pretty sure it will be my walkaround. I think its the perfect range and seems to be pretty phenomenal. I just find myself wishing I'd forked it over for the expedited shipping! *sigh*

Yah, my 24-70mm on my 1D are what I shoot with 89.95% of the time. Great lens.

yep. got mine yesterday, went out today. and it's awesome. i can't believe the macro on it. and i have 100mm macro. 2.8 is just too good.

and if you aren't a wuss or a weekling it's not that heavy. and certainly not heavier than 70-200.

no downside.

The 24-70 is my bag-to-shot lens since it works great on a full-frame from curvy 24mm, even 35mm and normal 50 all the way up to portrait 70.
