Hi all,

I recently had the pleasure of getting my hands on a used 28-70 2.8 L and I must say - wow.

Its my second L, and truly believe I can never go back to consumer lenses now.

Anyway, it seams absolutely ridiculous that such a popular lens (before the 24-70 2.8 it was the top lens, sort of) doesn't have an archive too.

So post em!

Mike!, do your thing :D

Here is one - look how sharp it is!
(Not edited in any way, this photo is strait out of the camera. Not even levels...)

I payed about 600$, but don't forget I live in Israel so when it was bought first hand - it was already much more expensive than in the states.
Originally this lens cost about 1400$ in Israel, and now you cannot find a new copy here- only second hand.

Anyway - this seems to me a great way to go if you can't afford the 24-70, since it's image quality is as good (some reviews say it isn't as good, while others claim it is better. This leads me to believe they are both the same, and only differ for the same reason all lenses differ - uneven quality management), the AF is only slightly slower (I do PJ work and haven't had a problem with it's AF speed at all) & 4mm less on the wide end - you sure mis those 4mm but they aren't worth the extra 700$-900$...

Here is another shot I took a few minutes ago-
I'm trying to figure out the focus & DOF characteristics of this lens, since all lenses differ in this respect...

BTW, here is a100% crop of the first image.
Here you have the original untouched image, and an example of where you can get with a mild Unsharp mask adjustment.

Hi guys, these are a couple samples of pictures taken using canon 28-70 F 2.8 L + Canon 30D camera, I am new to digital photography I got this lens for my trusty EOS 3, 35mm camera about 6 yeras ago, I use it as my all purpose lens and so far I am very happy with the results. I am an amateur so if there is something wrong with the pics blame it on the photographer for the camera, the lens, and the models (my kids) are all good :)

Here are a few from me. I bought the lens here from brimacx and couldn't be happier with it. It's definitely a great alternative to the 24-70 for those on a budget (student here).
