Talking Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM - The Brick

I think the thread address is so clear
let's post photos of this lens
don't post another links, because i have many links of this lens already.
Just i like to post and share here rather than just see photos from links.
I like to participate here not just keep seeing pics, so let's all share photos from this lens here. Be Honest

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?

I chose the 24-70 f/2.8 over the 24-105 soley based on bokeh. I like the bokeh WAY better on the 24-70 as well as the overall light range. I noticed the backgrounds were a touch lighter on the 24-70 and a bit darker on the 24-105. I got to try them both out at the store I shop at which is a great way for you to choose which one you prefer. The extra focal length and image stabilization would have been nice but that's why I've got legs and steady hand.

A number of things really, many people don't want or need the extra aperture and they feel the IS more than makes up for it (i agree with that depending on how it's used of course) also the extra focal length and similar IQ make the 24-104 the better option.
I can't speak for everyone but that's how i see it, i was going to get one until my 24-70 fell into my lap at a price i couldn't refuse.

Wow
nice shot
is this with 24-70L or you use 24-105 IS?
i agree that 24-70L is enough over that 24-105

I opted to purchase the 24-70. That image was taken with the 24-70 and a B&W polarizer.
