Before you get too excited, No, I did not buy this lens. I rented it for a few days. I wanted to try it out and compare it to my Tamron 18-270mm. Last year I tested the 24-70mm f/2.8 and was not overly impressed with it.
So far after taking about 20 or so shots with this sweet lens, I am very impressed. It’s fast focusing and quiet. It’s sharp as well. I will be taking a ton of photos with it this weekend so expect to see lots.
