How's the Bokeh between the 2 is one better then the other or are they comparable?

Small differences in bokeh is not something we've ever agonised over, or even bothered comparing (then or now) - but we never saw anything (with either lens) that drew our attention away from what we trying to achieve with a particular image.

For us it was a much more simple process - we wanted more trustworthy focus, so we switched from Canon to Nikon end of 2008. The 24-70 f2.8 was a workhorse lens for us, so we simply bought Nikon G to replace Canon L ...in the process we found we'd bought a much sharper lens. D700 and 24-70 f2.8G make an excellent combination.

I mentioned the Fixation thing because the fact that both our Canon and Nikon 24-70's went to them takes out any variation in manufacturer's individual lens QC.

Well the focus ring isn't the only thing that's backwards with Nikon; the aperture ring is too, and what about when you attach a lens to a body? You turn it in anti-clockwise... :rolleyes:

haha yeah it took me like 2 months or so to orient myself with the lens mount :lol: I always turn it the other way around :lol:

as for the aperture ring, its not much of an issue since I don't use it much

Well now that I have my D300 I can comment here, and I have to say (even though it's old now) this camera is great, now I just need to find a grip.


I have returned to the light side of the force.

Hey guys! Been a while since I ventured in here.... Curious if you all can share some comparison between the Nikon 24-70g to canon equivalent and 70-200 VR II to the canon equivalent.... Contemplating a switch again and these two lenses are going to be accompanied by a D700 or like body.... Mainly switching because of the Nikon 14-24

The Nikon 24-70 is one of the sharpest lenses I've ever used. The Canon 24-70 didn't impress me, neither copy, plus people have a lot of problems with it, focus performance wise.

I've had the Canon 70-200 V2.8 IS v1 and have the Nikon 70-200 V2.8 VR II. Both are great lenses, of course the Nikon v2 is better than the Canon v1. I would say the Canon II and the Nikon v2 will be pretty similar.

The people I know here who have the Canons have indeed had problems with them (which is why I went for the Tamron). If I get a Nikon I think their 24-70 will be one of the first lenses I get. There aren't many other lenses from any manufacturer which EVERYONE raves about and NOBODY says anything negative about.


5D & 7D (both gripped), 24-105L, 100-400L, 15-85, 50 f1.8, Tamron 28-75, Sigma 12-24, G10, EX-Z55 & U/W housing, A1+10 lenses, tripods, lighting gear, etc. etc.

24-70G is simply amazing!
The the zoom mechanism is better than the 24-70L, also comes with a wider rubber zoom ring
The hood scream quality and it even have a lock button for easy removal.
