however you spin it you will still have more options with an IS lens.

Pretty much comes down to that. IS opens up creative options, simple as that. Every lens benefits from IS in some circumstance or another.

For the OP, I use the 24-70L and a 1.3 camera (Mark III). Canon does not currently make another lens that could/would replace it with as my walk-around.

Very happy with the 24-70 on a MkIV. Despite the APS-H sensor size, I think it's still the best day to day working rig.

I used a 24-70 on my 1DmkII, sold it in November as I "needed" the 24/1.4 mk2, only for the added couple of stops. Really could´ve been perfectly happy with the 24-70 if I had a wider range of stops in ISO adjustments, which you have your mkIV. Gerat lens! No, you don´t need IS.

I use either the 16-35 or the 24-70 on my 1.3x crop (markIII)... for most events, I find the 24-70 to be adequately wide, and I like to be able to go from wide to moderate telephoto quickly and without changing lenses. Usually I will have the 70-200 on the other body if I need to go even longer. When possible, I use the 24-70 over the 16-35 because I find it has superior sharpness, and "look," though the 16-35's not bad, either.

I use the 24-70 frequently as a portrait lens, as I find it sharper at 70mm than my 70-200 at 70mm (though again, the 70-200's not bad).

Its my main lens during event coverage. I dont find the focal length odd for what I use. To answer your question, it performs well on the 1d4. Autofocus is fast and accurate. I dont mind paying a little more for IS but it doesnt hamper my type of shooting.

I was curious about this as well ... Ive always found the 24mm of 24-70 not wide enough for event work on my 1.6x crop 50D ... .. how much do you think a 1.3x crop would have a difference ? Would it be eqivalent to a 1.6x crop camera with an 18mm (18-55 lens)

I came from a 50D 1.6x and moved to a 5D FF and 1D2n 1.3x combo

If you need wideness definitely go for the FF. Its noticeably wider

If you're wondering abt the DOF effect, I'd say the 1.3x sensor on the 1D behaves more similar to FF instead of 1.6x...in fact i dont really notice any difference in the bokeh on real-world shooting conditions.

I use 24-70 on 1.6 crop and all hand held. At the time of buying I was worried sick that the lens is without IS and how am going to be using it without tripod. Now after a month of using it I can say that I have learned to manage shutter speed at 1/100 sec minimum. With my camera, sometimes i am forced to bump up ISO to 1600 and thereafter use relatively higher noise reduction values in PP.

Do you remember the time when IS did not exist? :-)

Good general purpose FOV on a 1.3x Mostly wide enough for they way I shoot however I do find its too short on the long end for serious closeup head/beauty shots.

Thank you everyone for your comments. I like the 2.8 on the 24-70L and I wanted to know how it would perform paired with my 1d Mark IV. Thanks to all of you I now have a decision to make. Cheers!

I've been wanting to love my 24 70 since I got it used in December. It was perfect at 70mm but terrible at 24mm and I have barely used it. Finally got around to returning it to get it calibrated today so hopefully when it comes back in a week or 2 it will be perfect.

Fingers crossed!

Mine is the opposite of you, great at 24 and bit soft wide open at 70.
