Canon 24-70 2.8 MkII

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.
