The official marketing text of Canon EF 28-70 mm f2.8 L USM as supplied by the manufacturer

One of the most important accessories for each lens you own. A lens hood provides multiple functions: it shades the lens from stray light, improving your contrast and image quality; in inclement weather, it can assist in keeping moisture or wind-blown debris off the lens; and it protects the front barrel from the inevitable impacts against walls, door frames, and other real-life obstacles. Almost all EF and TS-E lenses have a Canon lens hood engineered specifically for it.

The way in which a camera lens is constructed.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).

As anyone who's shot with one will attest (see the user reviews below), the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens is just an exceptional optic. This was clearly evident in our DxO tests as well. On the sub-frame EOS-20D, the lens was tack sharp across the entire frame...
Canon EF 24-70mm f.2.8L USM reviewCanon’s original EF 28-70mm f/2.8L USM was an immediate hit when it was introduced more than ten years ago: such was its fame that it went on to set the standard to which other manufacturers aspired. The 24-70mm versi...

Bottom line Despite its age, Canon's 24-70mm f/2.8L is still able to hold its own, producing images with very good to excellent sharpness, especially in the centre of the frame. The price tag of just under £1000 seems very reasonable to me, especially as its a lens...
Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Standard Zoom Lens. This new lens does what many people thought would never happen- replace the L-series 28-70 f/2.8 lens with something more powerful and versatile. This extended range, ultra-wide angle camera lens is ideal...
Bottom line Overall, the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Standard Zoom Lens is an expensive but worthy addition to the Canon SLR lens collection. Despite having autofocus and low-light issues, this model is among the best that a consumer can buy for a single, standard...

The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 USM L is one of the more mainstream professional grade lenses in the Canon line up and very popular among pro (especially press) photographers as well as serious amateur. On full format DSLRs it's a fast standard zoom lens c...
Bottom line The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 USM L is an impressive zoom lens upon first contact but it stayed somewhat short of the high expectations with respect to its optical characteristics. It can certainly produce sharp images if you know how to handle it but th...
