The 'It Lens' for all Canon DSLR users
The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Lens is actually the most functional all-range zoom lens, and possibly the best upgrade from normal DSLR kit lens. Be it for landscape, portrait, wildlife, indoor or fine art photography, the image quality of Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Lens is excellent, bringing superb colour saturation and sharpness.
If you are wondering whether you should upgrade a Canon Camera body or a Canon L-series lens, I will say the latter - the lens determines better image quality, whereas the camera determines image capture/processing.
In fact, I am still using my Canon 400D and Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Lens is a huge upgrade itself. Try this lens at your nearest photography stores for a personal shooting experience.
The drawback of this lens is that it can be heavy (990g) and quite expensive. However, the image quality boost, zoom range, flexibility and solid build easily overcomes all negative points.
If I have only one lens, this will be the one - although some may prefer Canon EF 24-104mm f/4L USM Lens for even bigger zoom range but smaller aperture range.
Verdict? You will not regret buying one.Read full review
