Yes, I know the background is horrible, but when you have a puppy you have baby gates. This is almost SOOC, I just bumped up the sharpening from 4 to 5 in DPP.

I love the way the picture is sharp (at least to my eyes), yet you can almost reach out and feel the puppy softness because it captured the detail of the fur so beautifully. Amazing!

Love mine also. Don't really care if they come out with an IS version, mine gives me just incredible sharp images and is not going anywhere.

IS Capability...

I purchased my 24-70L just as the 24-105mm f/4L appeared on the market. Photographers were dumping their perfectly good 24-70L lenses in favor of the new kid on the block and the prices of used 24-70L copies took a momentary but, significant dip. I got mine in mint condition for a little over $800.

I absolutely love this lens, especially for studio work.

As far as a studio lens, I recently had a guy that owns a studio tell me it is the most perfect lens for that kind of work, as he almost drooled on my lens. He was holding a 24-105 f4L in his hands.

I, of course, love mine too. It stays on my body all the time now. I even recently bought a new camera, sling bag and it had to pass the, "I-don't-want-to-have-to-keep-my-70-200-lens-on-my-camera-to-use-this-bag" test. Because I find that I really want this lens on my camera as a first pull lens. If I need more reach then the 70-200 f4L comes out. For most things, I'm finding, I shoot the 24-70L. It's become my most trusted, go to lens in my bag. I also got a pretty good deal on mine. I bought it Refurbished from Calumet for $1100. Super happy with it!

Sweet puppy! I miss having a dog.

I love mine, too. Sharp enough at f/2.8, very, very nice contrast, beautiful saturation, and more. The build feels so good and balanced with my 1D2. The need for IS is simply non-existent. Handholding down to 1/15 can be done easily.

I actually yesterday shot my son indoors and in some lowish window light at 1/20 and 1/15 @ f2.8 and was completely shocked at the sharpness. I think it's because of the wieght of that lens camera body with grip and having a solid stance when shooting. The wieght helps.

^ You are right. My eyes trip out when I look at that picture. I can barely even see the dog in the picture because my eyes are going nuts

Wow...where are you seeing those prices?
