All "L" telephoto zooms are white - someone said it's because it reflects heat. I think it's just so we can see each other and get jealous. Go to the Canon website and you can see all the "white" line-up.

This is a very cool shot. Just curious, did you do much post processing to pop the colors and light levels any? Very nice.

Yes just a little. The tunnel was lit by flourescent light, that's what give the green glow. Everything else is natural. sharpened and color saturation was raised.

I received my 24-70 2.8L today. These are two of the first pictures taken off the "big brown truck". I'm not real sure why I decided on taking a picture of the side of my brothers car, but I did. I guess this was my version of the "battery test". I'm looking forward in playing with the lens this weekend.

Right, i like it and i am so satisfied with it.
but why most people here or somewhere choose 24-105mm? is it because of focal length or something else?

Because some people think the extra reach is more useful for the "walk around" lens, and that the IS will cover the low light situations.

Although if you have the 70-200 2.8, then the 24-70 is the better pairing. :)

Yes, that is correct. White absorbs heat much less than black. And these lens are made for outdoors stuff, and sun exposure is often common in this big lens.

It is for me. That's a personal decision. Depends on what you need, how much room, what your subject is, if you'll get distortion, etc. Very subjective.

Generally speaking, no its not wide enough, and thats why my next lens will be the 10-22. But I agree with Ronald in that its somewhat subjective and your need for a wider lens is also based on the type of photography you do.
