I've added a photo taken during the 2015 Bristol Balloon Fiesta of the night glow. This was handheld and demonstrates the excellent Image Stabilisation, sharpness, and the low light performance of the 6D, of course.
I would agree that this lens carries a hefty price tag, but you know the price before you buy. This is a brief review about how the lens actually performs in practice, rather than a review of Canon's pricing policy, so that you have some information to weigh up against whatever price tag you are seeing.
I've owned the lens for a couple of weeks and have shot 1 wedding with it so far. I was also considering the Tamron 24 - 70 f2.8 VC and was torn between the 2 lenses. My experience with 3rd party lenses has been that when you get a good copy they can be excellent, but I typically go through 2 or 3 copies before I get a keeper. In the end this was what tipped me towards the Canon option.
In opting for the Canon over the Tamron, my main concern was that I'd miss shots that I would have caught with the help of the Tamron's VC. In practice, most of the shots that I'm rejecting for technical reasons are down to movement of the subject, rather than the camera - an even wider aperture may have saved the shot, not VC / IS. At this focal length, image stabilisation for photography is a nice feature, but far from essential. If I wanted the lens for video work I would definitely have gone with the Tamron.
This lens had a tough act to follow, as I love my Canon 70 - 200 f2.8 IS II, but apart from the obvious - the lesser bokeh & compression that the shorter focal length offers, in most other respects, the quality of the images produced by these two lenses is very comparable as is the focus speed.Read more ›
For those reasons I was doubtful about the need to upgrade.
However, this lens has shown itself to be a clear improvement over the previous superb mark 1 lens.
The lens has been redesigned and the main result in practice for the user is improved sharpness throughout.
The lens is very fast to focus and works well in all lighting circumstances within reason.
It is now more water and dust proof.
It is built to last.
The hood is a short wing design which does not offer the front element (with or without a filter) the protection from rain spots which the much longer hood did with the previous model.
This is a disadvantage for photographers that have no choice but to work in wet conditions.
I have communicated with Canon about this but as the internal action of the lens has been reversed it is not possible to fit a longer hood.
Otherwise I would agree with all the reviews that report the improvements of this lens over the mark 1
Superb has now become superb plus!
Worth every penny for professionals and enthusiasts.
