after much debate for a new lens, I finally bought 24-70 this week. The first impression: darn it, it's heavy. after four days, that impression still persists. my wife can barely hold it on my 40D. I find it myself not easy to work with it for a long time.
I'm sure I'm not the only one going through this. Does having a grip help? or is there anyone moved away from this lens because of the weight? if so, which did lens did you end up getting?
needless to say, the image quality + convenience of focal length is awesome.
