I'm looking into doing a local trade with a someone who's offering their 24-70 for a 24-105 + $100 CDN. Reason being is that while the 24-105 does offer a variety of focal lengths + IS, i'd rather take the faster lens for the type of work I do.
My question is which date codes for the 24-70 are "good versions"? i'm hearing many people saying that their 24-70 had soft focus issues and so on. While the mark ii version is to be released soon, the cost is what is holding me back.
thanks for the feedback!
