The copies of the 24-70L I have used have all been pretty good. Though remember (and check lensrentals) they can wear and then have issues.

Our 24-70 is about the only lens i use.. and its been thrashed... thrown around all sorts lol.. when on 24mm its got pretty gnarly tilt shift effects at the edges :D I sent it in for calibration at the end of last wedding season and need to do the same again now... hanging out for the Mk II though ..

Sometimes it focusses well - sometimes not... i cant pinpoint what causes it to do it though... it works enough for what I need - but its definately time to put it into retirement.


A bunch of Canon bits and pieces.

A 24-70 on a FF camera can't be bettered by anything except a bag full of primes... I think I'd sell everything before mine, including the camera to attach it to...

Chrissie, you could have had my 5D and lens had I known...


Cheers, Dave.

I'm impressed he got it to work at F3.5, mine won't stop down below F2.8.

I think it was welded open a the factory.

It's not as bad as my 135 though, that damn thing is stuck at F2.
Right pain the proverbial.

So I hear that the Black Magic Digital Cinema camera (for those interested in video) has a dynamic range of 13 stops...

What is the best dynamic range available in Canon's camera range at the moment? I'm using older gear but my experience shows me that the real usable range from my cameras is around 7-9 stops (9 if I'm very lucky). I know there's a new HDR style camera out there (non-Canon) but what's the best 'effective and usable' dynamic range available for Canon DSLRs at the moment?

Sorry to talk cameras.....

(I see that the 550D - which I have for video capabilities - is supposed to have a range of 11.2 EV, but I have not found that to be the case at all - then again that could be affected by which lenses are in use at the time etc etc)

Its supposed to, but no one knows if it actually does.
I think the RED does more than that, it's something pretty crazy looking at test footage.
