f/11, 41mm, 1/160 sec, Tripod.24-70 f/2.8L II provides oodles of it.
Sharp throughout, little distortion and no chromatic aberration make this a keeper lens, color rendition and micro contrast are also excellent, it beats its Canon stable mates and is a great all around lens.
From portrait shoots to wide landscapes, on a Canon full frame camera you cant beat it, I'll take it over three f/1.4 primes any day. Paired with the EF 16-35 f/2.8L II and the EF 70-200 f/4L IS, I don't feel a need for any thing else for a shoot in the back country.
Only downfalls are weight and cost, I got it with the $200 rebate after the priced dropped a little.
Its missing Image Stabilization, is that a downfall? not if it increased the weight and size, I shoot all critical images on a tripod where Image Stabilization does nothing and even in low light Image Stabilization isn't much help.
