OK.. thanks! The photos certainly don't seem to be suffering for lack of IS.. :D

P.S. I deleted my post after realizing that it was in the lens archive section and reposted it in the main forum as a separate thread. Sorry for the confusion.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

See, now you did say it.

And yes I have noticed a rather big difference at 24mm f/8-f/10 between this and the 24 1.4 II and 24 TSE compared to say a 24-105 or 24 2.8 non-IS or 17-40 on FF.

OK, I said it. But I am wondering HOW you noticed a big difference? What was your zoom level? 10%, 33%, 50%, 100%. Are seeing it in prints or just on the screen....

certainly 100% screen view, also 50%, perhaps at 33% in the worst parts of the far edges

and prints (i don't know about it mattering on 3x5 or 4x6" but already on just 10x6.6" size prints you can tell)

All I can say is I was equally disappointed with all three 24-105 I've tried (they all seemed about the same), maybe I just got three bad ones but that means there are lot of really bad copies of that out there if so. My Tamron 28-75 cost 1/3 the price and did as well or better at the edges stopped down and a touch better even in the center even at f/8. But none do as well as my 24 1.4 II did or my 24-70 II does (overall, one corner is a bit weak, I feel maybe you need to look at 6+ copies to get one perfect in all ways and only somewhat better than the tamron, the rest is all definitely better on it across the board, wide, long, wide open, stopped down, at 70mm f/2.8 it is sharper than even my 70-200 f/4 IS was at at least 70mm f/4.5).

The 24-105 also spit out a lot of purple fringing junk even stopped way down for tricky forest scenes where bright sky shines through branches a the edges and corners, it's all many pixels thick PF mess, but zero pixels thick with the 24-70 II and only a little bit with the 24 1.4 II.

I need some help with softness issues I'm having with my 24-70 2.8L USM purchased about a year ago. Today I was performing the micro adjust procedure but also noticed that there is significant focus "hunt". The two images below were captured back to back. This is on a tripod about 10 feet from the subject, 100% crop, center focus point, f/2.8 at 51mm.

Why so much focus lock difference? Can't be normal. Suggestions?

You might want to post your question in the 24-70 2.8L USM image thread. Or perhaps in the general "Canon EF and EF-S Lenses" forum. :)

Wide open at 70mm... This drink was quite awesome, by the way. Very unique!

Some photobucket quality loss though... I don't usually upload randomness to my Flickr :D

Great shots. It looks like a winner for kids photos.

What shutter speed did you use for this shot? I've heard from many people that 1/60 is perfect for taking rain shots.. true?

I would be interested in the EXIF, too alann. I have failed with rain shots before and this looks spot on.

Here are a two from last night. I haven't done too many long exposures yet and should probably have stopped down a bit...
