Pros: very sharp even wide open on all focal lengths, high contrasts, solid construction, reliable and fast AF

Cons: expensive, heavy, large 82mm filter thread, vignetting at 24mm (can be easily corrected in postprocessing). Compared to the old design of its predecessor the short lens hood can't provide much protection.

Opinion: The sharpest standard zoom for full frame. Brilliant colors and contrast. Expensive and heavy but the produced images are outstanding. AF hit rate is nearly 100%, fast and reliable. Compared to the old design of its predecessor (with its 'inverse' zooming) the short lens hood can't provide much protection. The 82mm filter thread may introduce additional costs for new larger filters.

Pros: very sharp at all settings, great contrast, accurate AF

Cons: filter size, price

Opinion: I lost most of my interest in primes after getting this lens. In fact I will sell my 50mm f/1.4 after getting the zoom. The zoom is really sharp with great contrast and good rendering. My friend has seen the onion ring bokeh from out-of-focus metallic objects, but I have not encountered this yet. I wanted to buy cheaper lenses but in the long run I decided this was still cheaper, lighter, and more convenient than a few primes. AF is fast and accurate, build is solid, and I like the size of the lens hood... it isn't too obnoxious like the one with the 17-40L. It fits in my bags without having to remove it. This is subjective, but I also like how it feels in my hands. The rings are well-placed and easy to locate by feel. It balances nicely on a 5D3. The downside for me is the filters. I hoped to avoid buying more and carrying more than one set, but in the end I think this lens is worth it.

Pros: Exceptional sharpness

Cons: Encumbrance, lack of stabilization

Opinion: I had it for some time, then sold it for the above cons, but then I bought it back because I missed it. Perhaps for specialistic use given the reduced albeit classic focal hike. I'm not so happy with the resistance to flare, although the second (bought recently) seems better than the previous (possible?) but the weight and size would have required the stabilizer. Ultimately a great lens to know how to use to exploit it fully.

Pros: Max Aperture 2.8

Cons: Weight-size-Price

Opinion: I have used for years the 24-70 4.0 L IS. Compared to the latter it has nothing more than the possibility of greater detachment from the 2.8 diaphragm background. Of cons is not stabilized, which is very useful in many situations. With the same diaphragm, until now, IMHO, the sharpness is identical. It also weighs more and is bulkier.

Pros: Accurate, Reliable

Cons: Not having had it in the outfit to date

Opinion: I tried several zoom 24-70 from the first series of canon, to the Sigma art passing through Tamron and it has always been, even on an emotional level, a compromise between versatility and quality. I have a few days the 24-70 2.8 L II a fantastic lens accurate and reliable, a must have in the outfit of a professional (both photographer and videomaker) that has the need to combine quality versatility and dynamism.
