Great service, and I was able to pick up in Brooklyn and drop off in Manhattan, which made my day.

Renting from CSI was a great experience. I easily arranged pickup and dropoff logistics through this site and the lens was in perfect condition and gave our project the look I wanted. CSI was also super accommodating when our 1 week shoot turned into a 3 week shoot and I needed to extend the rental.

Helpful customer service and very easy to work with. Would recommend.

Flexible and easy renter. Let me rent from Manhattan and return in Brooklyn.

I've had nothing but pleasant experiences renting from CSI and this was no different. Stellar service, all around.

Professional and on point!

Great! Easy pickup and dropoff.

Great rental experience!

Would rent again!

Awesome light great to glamour shots.

Great, company very accommodating, gear and lens where in great shape.

Always great renting from CSI!

Great fixture! Thanks!

CSI was very accommodating and incredibly quick to respond. Elements beyond our control were messing with our shoot dates and CSI was very understanding.

The lenses were all ready for pick up when arrived, very quick and simple. The lenses themselves were great! Exactly what I needed for my weekend shoot. Thanks so much!

Incredibly easy pickup and return. Couldn’t have been smoother. Thanks!

Camera’s great. A couple of employees I dealt with were great.

The experience of dealing with the rental house was less than stellar. I would highly recommend renting from individual over this rental house even if it is slightly more money. They’ll be more understanding, friendly, and helpful.

Maybe they’ll straighten up their act and not toy with the customers and be more professional.

Picked up in Brooklyn and returned to Manhattan. Having the insurance via kitsplit was a plus. Also I requested camera with clog and got it. Good experience overall

Leaked a little, but really helped us out when we needed it.

My rental was confirmed within a reasonable time period and pick up/drop off were very smooth. Thank you!

The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM was announced a year ago, in February 2012, as an update to the venerable EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM of 2002. It features an all-new optical design, designed to provide improved imaging performance right across the frame and reduced distortion compared to its predecessor. The lens also features a smaller, lighter design and weather-sealed construction, and Canon promises improved robustness due to revised internal construction. It's designed primarily for Canon's high-end full frame bodies (with a price tag to match), but can of course also be used on APS-C SLRs such as the EOS 7D, on which it offers a 38-112mm equivalent angle of view.

The 24-70mm f/2.8 II is intended to be a workhorse lens for professional photographers that has to deliver the best possible results in a wide range of conditions. It uses a suitably exotic optical design for this purpose, with 18 elements in 13 groups, including two 2 ultra-low dispersion (UD) glass elements and one Super UD aspheric element to minimize aberrations. Naturally it uses Canon's ring-type ultrasonic motor for fast, silent focus with full-time manual override, along with a circular aperture diaphragm for attractive background blur.

One feature the lens doesn't offer, though, is image stabilization - Canon says this would require too great a compromise in either image quality or size. This makes for an interesting comparison with the Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD that was announced at about the same time, and incorporates image stabilization into a lens that's almost exactly the same size (and of course, rather cheaper). Users who need IS and prefer to stick with Canon's own lenses will have to make to with a stop slower aperture, from either the EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM or the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM. In this review we'll compare how all of these lenses measure up against each other in the lab, and assess the 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM's specific strengths and weaknesses.
