Has anyone here got the 24-70mm canon USM lens? If so, is it good? I have a canon 40D and want to upgrade from the standard lens.

Hi, I compared the 24-105mm against the 24-70mm in my review of the former on the EOS 5D - you can find it here:

Its very quick and bright!

excellent thank you. It looks awsome and cheaper than the 24-105mm probably due to the IS. Better gather up my pennies and head to the shop. Any shop recomendations?

Not sure if you'd order from the US, but if you do, you can check prices of this lens here:

Canon 24-70mm f2.8L

And if you end up shopping from, say, Amazon in the US or Canada, you can help us out by ordering via this page!

Right, that's my advert over!

It's a really nice lens if the range is ok for you. It's also a super quick focuser and works great for portraits and weddings. If you're willing to trade one stop though, the 24-105mm gives you a longer range and IS...
