Same, it seems to get most play time out of the camera bag.

A great lens. Still have the original film version of this lens (24-70/F2.8 Canon L).

For digital, I switched to the micro 4/3 format (Olympus).
The equivalent lens is:
M.ZUIKO ED 12-40MM F2.8 PRO, which is 24-80mm/F2.8 in full-frame 35mm terms.

But less than 1/2 the weight of the L lens...

Wish it was an f/2.8 but then it would be HUGE!

No you are not, I am . Wishful thinking I guess.

You mean a Canon 24-105 mm f4 L

I don't think there is a 2.8. If there is, where can I buy it?
