I would say no, and that last night was user error on my part :D

I shot a couple pics tonight with the sun in the same location to me as it was last night, some this morning and all the other shots tonight I couldn't duplicate the issue...

Hence I chalk it up to me being a bonehead!

Great, thanks.
I have my eye set on this lens and was a bit worried at your report of vignetting...whew....:)

A lower aperture means it's faster lens, which usually means you can shoot better in low light situations as well as brighter situations...Faster shutter speed in both.

What I want to know is:
24-70 2.8 EX Macro owners, how do you think this lens stacks up to yours? farrukh was kind enough to send me some beautiful pictures! Interestingly enough, they don't appear much different to me. I'm still wondering about the 24-70...I may get the 10-20 EX next and then move to the 24-70 later?
hehehe, still a tad uncertain wondering if the 24-70 would be better. I do love this lens though!

Even if optically there is little difference, the 24-70 is an EX lens with better build quality, and on the long end, its more than a full stop faster because of its constant aperture.

I use the 20D and often found that 18mm or 17mm was not wide enough for photo's that I needed to get . So I sprang for the 10-22 Canon.

do you shoot landscapes a lot? just wondering.

Yes I do , but I also do alot of shooting indoors, at family bbq's, and other places where space is an issue. I recently purchased the 10-22 after a trip to DR where I was suffering with a 18-55 kit lens, cause the 18mm end was to narrow for me to get the wide angle that my eye likes to look at.

I have the Tamron 28-75, and for some reason the images from that lens tend to need a bit of processing unlike the images from the 10-22 Canon.

Now if only I could figure out this damn white balance...

Nice pics on your site! When you say 'straight out of the camera' what are your settings if you don't mind me asking?

Well i have the 24-70 EX and its a beast. only got it yesterday and have taken about 200 shots indoors and i like the IQ but im going to take it back because its just too big and heavy for a day out.
Im thinking of getting the 17-70 but i must admit i would like a longer reach and faster apature at the long end. i just cant find anything that has the same spec only smaller and in the same price range.

Well I'll let you know how they compare! In the end, the higher IQ of the 24-70 and constant f2.8 was driving me nutso and I shipped the 17-70 back. Plus, I got a DSLR to take better pictures, not to have a more expensive point and shoot. I figure a 10-20 or 10-22 will round out the collection to completion and make me feel like I'm using my camera for it's intended purpose. Seriously though the 17-70 is an awesome performer I think, and 4.5 at 70mm really isn't that bad at all. You're only other option I think in the same focal length would be the 17-85 IS, you don't get the faster aperture but you do get IS, which may or may not help with indoor shooting. I did take some sample pics with the 17-70 at 1600 ISO and it did well also, I just failed to post them before I deleted them.
