    Picked it up yesterday, finally feel like my needed lenses are complete. I'm amazed by the sharpness of this thing. I went from the 18-70 and 12-24 Tokina to this and I'm loving it :eek4:

    Set-up shot, I wanna reshoot in motion and putting a modifier on to soften the light more (I couldn't drive and shoot)

    Nah, I find this one to be more useful for my purposes. From what I hear the 14-24 is just slightly sharper than the 24-70 but so far I have no complaints. Girth has the 14-24 and makes love to it every night, Im sure :mamoru: I'm gonna take a break on gear for a while and just shoot shoot shoot (I bought the 70-200 jan 1st, and now this...my wallet needs a break).

    Yeah, I have the 14-24, it's unreal, even wide open it's fantastic.

    i'd kill for my 28-70 to be that sharp :eek3:

    The 24-70 on a nice sunny day is very sharp.
