YOU WILL REGRET IT...

You will regret the purhase because you won't be happy with the quality of your other lens or lenses. This can result in a definite drain on your bank account.

But, OH BOY! The image quality you will be getting might make it worthwhile to be poor!

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR NEW LENS!

Hope it lives to my expectations, even considering I am going to use it on a XS... for now!

No worries. The XS may be an entry-level camera, but the IQ is great. It's about the same as my 40D in 80% of cases (I prefer ISO 400 and 800 on my 40D). It should shine with your 24-70L.

I also bought my first L recently (chose to go with the 24-105 for the extra reach though) and I couldn't be any happier. Fast, sharp, great colors, great contrast. It's everything I ever hoped for and more. I'm lucky that my 70-210 is almost L quality otherwise I'd be a bit frustrated because I don't have the money to buy another lens right now.

Dang, now I see why they call it "the brick". They were not joking about it. Won't it break the mount being so heavy?! LOL

Well, I guess I am calling the day short at work today, gotta get home and try this baby.

By the way, sorry for the lame picture from it, but the only other camera I had in hand was my cellphone's... :)

Tell you I am already afraid my 18-55mm and even the Sigma 30mm start gathering dust already... poor babies! :D

The 18-55 WILL gather dust...The Sigma 30 hopefully won't gather dust :)

As nice as the 24-70L, there's something about wide open shots from the Sigma that no zoom can quite match. I just used my 30 tonight while shooting around the house and I'm glad I held onto it, even after buying my brick...

The 24-70 is an awesome lens if one manages to get a good copy. It's pretty fat and heavy but it's worth lugging around on the camera.

Hey.

Enjoy your first 'L' Lens! Take a deep look at your bank statement. You can kiss that goodbye here very soon. :)

You my friend, have locked yourself into this 'hobby' like the rest of us. muhahahaha.

Hey! I see Cisco reference books!! Reminds me of when I used to be a CCNA.

I got mine today. Cannot wait to try it out. Got that right about the bank account never being the same again. Too many "L" never enough and never enough money
