Great Lens – I’m really enjoying this lens. Prior to a camping trip I rented this lens to test it, and LOVED it. The images are very clean and crisp on my 6D. I opted for the f4 over the f2.8 for a few reasons 1) the f4 costs significantly less money 2) I mostly shoot landscapes and my aperture is usually f8-f13 3) the Canon 6D offers outstanding low light and high ISO performance. I wasn’t sure about this focal range until using it, and now it’s my go to lens. The 24-70 f4 also complements my other lenses, 16-35 f4 L IS, 70-200 f4 L IS, and the Tamron 150-600mm.
