Anyone has an idea about the price of Canon 24-70f2.8 in mint condition on the used market ?
I will be paying difference over my Tokina 16-28 I bought but never used.
Is this lens any superior to my 24-105 f4 I will sell ?
You find the 16-28mm f2.8 too bulky and heavy, so you will find the 24-70nn f2.8 similar?
The Tamron 24-70 looks like a better lens anyway. But if you have a 24-105, why bother?
It is fine to replace the 24-105mm f4 when you do not like it less contrasty optics. Just be aware of the lens you want to replace it with, if you dislike one 950 grams brick (Tokina 16-28mm f2.8), you probably won't enjoy other 950 gram bricks either (Canon EF 24-70mm f2.8 L USM). From what I have seen, the 24-70mm f2.8 L USM has nicer colours, and personally I would like that lens.
In the past I was very happy With Sigma 24-70 on 30D, so I know this focal length is fine. I wouldn't mind a brick I would use often versus a brick I never used .
however my main question is still unanswered, how much is the cost of mint condition 24-105 on the used market ?
You 1st asked about the 24-70mm f2.8 price, now about the 24-105mm f4 price? No idea about the prices....
We're kinda forgetting that the 24-105 has just been upgraded to version two. Maybe that one is also worth considering once the price goes down a lil' bit...
