Just recieved the 24-70 mm GM lens this morning about 10 am and normally i do my Big Bronco wall test but today given the time too many cars so I went down the street and shot all these handheld. I went looking for Bokeh, Bokeh Balls, Onion rings and I got everything I was after. I did some interesting tests that Im not sure anyone has done before but hopefully you will see things very clearly especially bokeh on what this Zoom can do. Looking at these you may forget its a zoom because this laddie never seen a mid zone zoom be this nice at bokeh. On to images and i am going to be skipping around so pay attention
Interesting test I shot every focal length and every aperture to see what effect each focal length looks like at a given aperture. Now I kept moving away from subject doing this and i did it handheld. Not working about sharpness so much that will come later but I did use AF right smack on the nose at each focal length. Watch the Bokeh that is what this test is.
Now staying with the Bokeh look i tried another test all images at 2.8 but all different focal lengths. Yea we went from the Horse to the Cow and by the time we are all done I will have the whole McDonalds Farm animals. LOL
I do NOT see at all focal lengths wide open any bad focal lengths at this point. They all look very crisp in this daylight
