The official marketing text of Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Black as supplied by the manufacturer

The Zoom Lens EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM was developed as the successor to the EF28-70mm f/2.8L Featuring a new optical system design, the new zoom lens delivers an expanded zoom range with a 24 mm wide-angle focal length, ideally suiting it to digital image sizes, while also maintaining or improving on the outstanding image quality of the superceded model. Moreover, the power of the focusing lens group has been increased to allow a minimum focusing distance of just 0.38 meters, the shortest in its class at the time, throughout the entire zoom range. The new EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM also features a circular diaphragm, to give better background blur, and utilizes only lead-free glass optics in consideration of the environment.

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...

First introduced in 2002, this ageing professional standard zoom from Canon costs around £960 and sports weather sealed build, a fast constant f/2.8 maximum aperture and ultrasonic focusing with full-time manual override.Third party offerings include...
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...
The Canon 24-70/2.8L lens is Canons fastest and highest quality midrange zoom lens. It is designed for full-frame digital SLRs such as the Canon EOS 5D, $1870 (review). If you want a lens for covering wedding receptions, buy one right now from amazon...
The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L is one of Canon's best lenses ever. A Canon 24-70/2.8 L has been in just about every pro's bag ever since it was introduced in 2002. This is because it's great optically, ergonomically and mechani...
