Not now, may be after IS or 24-105 F2.8 version is out.
Already have pretty sharp copy of 24-70L, can't see how marginal sharpness improvement can justify all that spending, and then you are looking at 82mm filters, CPL, UV, ND, all that adds up.

Well, I decided to pull the trigger on this experiment... 24-70 and 24-105 are for sale. For moltengold, I am going to probably pick up a 16-35. Its a lens I've always wanted, and if I get rid of some primes, I'll be able to do that. So, I hope to have the 16-35 II, 24-70 II, and 70-200 II , which with the 5D3 should give me an amazing kit. Then I need to decide how to handle the long end better. I may part with my beloved 200 1.8 and go to a 300 2.8... not sure about that, because the 200 works so well with a TC. I'm going to probably hold off for a while after this all settles out though.

Unfortunately, while there are an abundant supply of used 70-200 IIs out there, I haven't seen to many 24-70 IIs for sale.

In a similar situation, except I don't own the 24-70 I, but I'm getting ready to sell my 24-105 for the 24-70 II. I hope I don't miss the IS too much but the reviews claiming significant difference in IQ have me convinced.

I sold the 24-105 and bought the 24-70 II. I So far I do not miss the IS. I had a good copy of the 24-105. But the IQ of the new 24-70II is better.

One of the reasons you will not find that many used 24-70II. The just on the market. ;-)a

I did. I had the original 24-70 2.8L and I love the newer 24-70 2.8L II. The only thing I miss about the old one is the hood. I liked having the bigger hood. In my mind I thought it offered more protection. The new lens is awesome though. Getting over the hood problem pretty quick. :)

I have tested the 24-70 2.8 II

I notice in low light, low contrast situations i.e. my bedroom wall, the AF is much faster to focus using the same camera. The Mark I is noticeably slower.

I will be testing it on some sports this week but am pretty sure the mark II is going to outperform the mark I. In fact, I had given up using the mark 1 because the AF was so slow.

OK, so I did the deed. The 24-70 went to a fellow POTNer and a local buyer just picked up the 24-105. I have a 24-70 f/2.8 II in the mail that will be here tomorrow. So I don't currently have a lens shorter than 85mm... I hope the wife doesn't want a family picture tonight or I'll have to stand outside the window, OR, carefully hold my iPhone underneath the 5D when she isn't looking. Tomorrow will be fun. There will also be a 70-200 f/2.8 II on the truck. I'm hoping these two lenses with the 5D3 will handle the majority of my shooting, the very short and very long ends not withstanding. That will be another thread.

How is the 24-70 ii distortion at 24mm compared to the 24-105? I just made a discovery today, that I think I may like my 24-105 better on my rebel t2i than my 5D3. At 24mm, while not that wide, it doesn't have much distortion on the T2i, and with the crop factor it seems like an amazingly versatile low profile setup. It's actually got me considering keeping the lens to leave on my T2i as a backup/multipurpose setup, and just getting a 24-70 ii anyways for the 5d3. I feel guilty though shooting anything with the Rebel while having the 5D sitting there. Any other multi-camera folks out there who can weigh in on this predicament?

EDIT: Congrats convergent!! You are going to absolutely love the setup. The 5D3 with 70-200ii is simply as good as it gets, and obviously this new lens covers the rest. Jealous.

on FF the 24-105L is horrible @ 24mm. even the brick is much better @ 24mm and the II is better yet plus sharper.

Yep, for a number of years I had two 1D series bodies, so when I was shooting with two, they were the same. Then I couldn't justify that expense and switched to a 1D3 and 50D together. Over time, I shot the 50D so infrequently, that I stopped bringing it and just wen to swapping lenses on the 1D3 instead. When you have two that are dramatically different, which your two are for sure, its hard to pick up the weaker link. I will eventually probably pick up something else... thinking about the follow on to the 7D might be the time I get interested. For now I'm going to enjoy being a single body man for a while.
