I saved up and bought the 24L II when I had my T4i
Best decision I made, it replaced my 17-55mm zoom as my walkaround.
Go for it, it is worth every penny.

That is a lot of pennies! I just can't swing $1,900+ ($1,500+ refurbed). Someday....

It's only worth while if you KNOW you need and want 24mm and autofocus.

If you can live without autofocus (I can, at 24mm) then there's better options that cost much less.

The 24L is a great lens, but again, it's only great for you if you need that focal length specifically and you want F1.4 at that focal length. If you're even remotely interested in this with autofocus and on a budget, get the EF 28mm F1.8 instead. It's very similar and way, way cheaper.

Very best,

^ I would recommend getting the 100mm macro USM rather than the 60mm macro
This weighs a little more and is larger, but it give you more working distances.
The advantage is you can be further from your subject (if it scares easily)
I have owned both at the same time, and sold the 60mm in favor of the 100mm.

Very best,

I've seen enough reviews to know the 24L at f/1.4 is better than the 28 at f/1.8. Ditto the 24L at f/2 and the 28 at f/2.8. I would be paying for half what I want, regretting it quickly, and left still wanting the 24L. Perhaps I'll find one in my christmas stocking.

It's going to take me at least another year to have enough saved so I can complete my lens kit. I plan to add the Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 Sport lens plus the two telcoverters. Then, I think I'll be done, with lenses, at least. ;)

Nice coverage. Do you have any interest in fast primes? I'd really love a 24L II.

I really like the versatility of the zooms. I mainly shoot landscapes, so I don't need a fast lens too often. The primes are nice though. I may pick up a fast wide angle to try out some astrophotography.

I agree with InfiniteDivide about the 100mm over the 60mm.

If you have your heart on a 60mm, then I would suggest the Tamron 60mm f/2 macro. It is a stop faster and just as sharp, and only $100 more than the Canon (the Canon is currently on sale - normally it is only about $50 more).


Thanks for Reading & Good Luck - Jim

I've had both, too. I sold the 100 in favor of the 60. I tend to shoot inanimate object, though. Ceramic doodads don't tend to be afraid of the lens.

I've currently paired my 700D with the 18-55 and 55-250mm STM lenses. Once the UK has more stock of the new 10-18mm STM, then I'll add that to give me a lightweight good quality setup covering just about every situation I'm likely to come up against.

Cheers,

Simon.

Just to update my lineup ... replaced the 50mm 1.8 II with the new 50mm 1.8 STM, and added the new 24mm STM

So, I ended with STM lens for just everything , except the excellent Tamron that I have no intention to replace.

In fact the lens I end using more is the 50mm, following with the 24mm, the 10-18, then the Tamron. I really only use the 18-135 when I'm on vacation and I want to travel light
