I took a bike ride this afternoon to one of the local parks, equipped with the 1D MK3 and only my 24-70L (70-200 is being calibrated :)).

This is one of the first times I got to use this combo outdoors, and the 24-70L makes me happier every time I use it.

First of all, the near "macro" abilities of this lens are fantastic. I was shooting some flowers with giant honey bees on them, and could get in so tight I thought I was going to get stung. :)

I took this picture wide open and just love, love the bokeh this lens produces. It rivals most primes.

Next up, I decided to use the 1D MK3's 10FPS and bracketing to make a HANDHELD HDR.

24mm, ISO200, F4.0, (5 bracketed shots over 4 stops (+-2))

I too have this very same combo and I love using it. It's so practical! But awesome all at the same time

Thanks a lot.
The 16-35L is actually a lens I had, and I would love to have again.
I wish there was a 16-70L 2.8. That would be the ultimate.

I'd imagine your 1DmarkIII brings out the best IQ out of that lens widopen. Are you micro adjusting your L lens with your camera body?

Great pics!!

Most of my 24-70L photos at f2.8 are not as consistantly sharp as your flower picture. Moving subject with my slower AF (xti) introductory body must be playing a role in my softer wideopen pics. A high percentage of my photos are moving subjects. The full frame camera bodies must make that lens shine.

AlanU, thanks for commenting.

You know, it may be my imagination, but when I went from my 20D to a 1D Mark2, that's when this lens really seemed to shine. I swore the lens was not only sharper, but showed much less CA. Now with the 1D Mark3, the lens seems to have improved again slightly (but the Mark3 does deliver nice images).

I have read that the 70-200/2.8IS gives better IQ on full frame than on crop cameras for some reason, so it's possible the 24-70L has been tuned similarly. While the 1D is not full frame, it's getting close with a 1.3x crop

Sign me up!!
f/2.8 + IS + L YEAH!! :lol:

Doubt it will happen - it will hurt their 16-35, 17-55, 24-70 and maybe 24-105 sales.

Very nice images Drisley! The 24-70 is on my radar now that I have a 1 series.

That would be awesome! Sign me up. Although it would probably run $2000 or more.

i'm sure you're right. if i had the 17-55L it would replace the 16-35 and 24-70 and canon wouldn't like that :evil:.
