Looking for reviews on how the performance of the 24-70 mark ii is on the 1dx for basketball under the net or from the corners? AF performance ok? 70-200 is just a touch to long for the court I'm shooting.

It is an outstanding lens for what you want to do. I use the 24-70, 70-200 and 300 (all f/2.8 latest versions) for basketball and don't feel like any one lens perform less well than the others.

Yes, it works great for basketball but I find it a little short for how I shoot.

I also shoot with a 70-200 and a 300mm it's just when I want to shoot under the net I suffer. Especially when I want to include the full body and basket in the frame.
