Even those who normally likes to shoot with prime lenses, at times prefer using the 24-70mm f/2.8 lens for various reasons. In the photography circles around the world, the f/2.8 24-70mm is recognized as an all purpose lens and a true workhorse. But Who makes the best 24-70mm f/2.8? To find out the answer to this question, the Camera Store TV took a trip to Alberta and met up with photographer Jeremy Fokkens and gave him the same lens made by four major manufacturers – Sony, Pentax, Nikon and Canon. Fokkens normally uses the 24-70mm from Nikkor. But in this video he was asked to pit that lens against its three biggest rivals in the market – the Canon 24-70L, Pentax 24-70DFA and Sony’s new G Master 24-70. So who came out on top? Have a look at the video and find out for yourself.
If you did not have the time to watch the full 17 minute video, here’s the results in brief. Each lens had its positives and negatives, but in terms of sharpness and bokeh, Sony came out on top. But do check out the whole video if you have the time.
