New guy here, about to make the jump back to Canon from a Panasonic M4/3 system ( for various reasons!).
I'm definitely going for a 70D which for my uses (general family stuff, Urbex, newborn portraiture, and some non professional video) seems like an excellent body and it is within my budget. To accompany this I will am contemplating getting the Canon 17-55 2.8, but I have heard some reports of softness at 2.8 ( which is where a lot of my shooting generally is). Does anyone here have this lens, and even better would be if anyone was using it on a 70D? How does it hold up at 2.8?
I realise that some of the non Canon equivalents may be technically as sharp or sharper, but over the years I've had many issues with 'bad' 3rd party lenses ( focus issues, soft sides, etc) and have often gone through many copies to find one that performs as it should. On the contrary any Canon lens I have shot with has performed as it should and also has that 'Canon look' that is often missing from other brands, so this time I'm hoping to go straight for the Canon even if it's a little more expensive. But before I pull the trigger I would love to hear feedback from you wonderful people
