    Can anyone post pics comparing the two?

    I hear the 24-70 doest get the shin tones exactly correct. I also hear that the 28-70 is a tad sharper. Can anyone show a side by side comparison of idenical shots from each lens showing the differences?
  2. Please. I would love to see this. Having just picked up a nice clean copy of the Beast at a reasonable price, I want to see if I did the "right" thing. If the 24-70 really is all that much better, I might sell it and upgrade. But, I have a hard time imagining it is really that much better. Looking forward to the comparisons.

  3. There was a thread comparing sample shots from the two posted somewhere earlier. I couldn't tell the difference. That's why I kept the Beast.

    I somehow doubt that anyone around here has a copy of both lenses, so I wouldn't expect many responses to this query.
