Also on a 6D from the same day as the post earlier. I do have some great live music images from this combo that I will post when I get a chance.

Keep us posted on your thought about it compared to the 24-70is, I'm thinking of the switch too! If anyone is selling let me know...

Thinking the same - has anyone compared the two lenses to one another.

I made the jump for the extra reach. The only things you will loose with the switch is length, minimal focus distance, and weight. The 24-105mkii is longer, slightly heavier, and cant do the macro like the 24-70IS. The benefits for me were worth it. The build quality is a typical "L" lens, the IS is about a stop better, longer focal length obviously, and the zoom lock is quite a bit better! I love my choice of swapping over to this lens over the 24-70 IS.

I brought the lens on a trip to Biscayne National Park.

The macro is still capable:

Hi all,

Although my version of mkII offers advantages over the mkI like better IS and colouration with zoom lock etc, it seems - from the pictures posted here - that the mkII needs to be screwed onto a full frame body for the sharpest results. I am using a 7dII and can’t see much sharpness improvement without post sharpening in Photoshop. Maybe I should go for the 5dIV or something. I am currently waiting for the 7dIII to materialise - if ever.
Any comments on this please?

Regards

Ray.

I had the mk1 with my 7D, and the mk2 on an 80d, so its definitely not apples to apples. It is an upgrade in terms of IS and the zoom lock, but the IQ it would be tough for me to give a good review based on the two but it would be tough. It is an upgrade, but is it worth selling yours for around 500 and buying this one for 700 used? Probably not 200 worth of increase, but if you like the zoom lock and the IS improvement then yes, but if that's not worth the 200, then probably wait.

Hi Ed

Lovely detailed sharpness on the birds and nice reflective clarity on car. What is the car? Jaguar on the radiator cap - AC badge?

I think that I must think about a FF body. I think! Oh drat and double drat, I’ve been thinking again - could get expensive.

Regards

That was an AC. I don't know much else about it as I didn't look at the info card (forgot). But it was spectacular.

The 6D is the perfect camera body for that type of photography at least for me. The files aren't super huge like my 5DIV and IQ is wonderful. I love the FF images from that sensor. And the lens is a good match. I shot the show last year with the 24-70 and the 6D and they came out great also. It is a show for European cars and there were about 300 cars shown by the owners. It is called "Wheels Across The Pond" and is held annually in Jupiter, Florida. Most of the cars are privately owned, the owners like to give them some air now and then!!

So far I'm pretty happy with the lens performance. Time will tell as I use it more often. I have been shooting some live music shows with it and it has performed well.

Thanks Ed

I asked about the car because one of my friends owned a SS Jaguar many moons ago and there are similarities.

Is there much difference in file size 6D vs 5D4? I was just thinking about getting a 5D4 or 5DSR because I’m getting a little impatient waiting for the 7D3 to be released.

Whilst I'm not Ed, my 5dsr was a fantastic camera. The detail it could capture was astonishing.

The big downside is, it's very slow and there is so much data in each file the camera buffer filled quickly and was slow to clear.
My computer on the other hand had no trouble whatsoever dealing with raw files.

In short, if you're a landscaper/still life/macro or portrait person, the 5dsr is hard to beat.
For anything else, not so good.

Just my feelings you understand.

Another GC view with this lens. I used it a LOT on my recent trip out west, alternating with the 17-40L but this one got most of the use. Also using it for live concerts a LOT now.

No I never owned the first version. I have the 24-70 F4L which is an amazing lens.

Thx. I have the original.... and it's not a bad lens. Sort of lackluster though. I don't have a 24-70 of any stripe at the moment. It really didn't bother me because I was shooting a 1.6 or a 1.3 crop. Now that I have a full frame camera, I might pick up something sometime. For now, I'll have to be content with the 24-105 I.
