We Did It--We Bought the Canon 24-70mm f2.8L Lens

Canon 24-70mm f2.8L Lens
After months of research, we finally took the plunge and purchased the Canon 24-70mm f2.8L lens.   What made us pull the trigger?

Well, it was not an easy decision by any means.  We have the nifty fifty as well as the Canon 28-135 mm lenses and both have served us well.  We have taken over 2,000 portraits using these two lenses.

But we were ready to invest in something new.

We knew we wanted a sharp, fast portrait lens that would would work great in low lighting and provide the much desired bokeh (background blur).  We considered prime lenses, third party lenses (Tamron and Sigma), and the highly regraded Canon 24-70mm f 2.8L lens.

After researching photography blogs, message boards, review sites, and asking every photographer we met what lens they loved most, the decision became obvious--invest in the 24-70mm f2.8L lens.

Santa came a little early and we now have this lens.  We are both eager and excited to try out this lens and we will be posting more pictures soon.  Here are just a few that I took while cutting down our Christmas tree this weekend.

If you have this lens, we'd love to hear about your experience with it.  Please, leave us a comment and share your lens story.
