Why I Hate My 24-70mm f/2.8 Lens (and how I Eliminated it From My Process)

The 24-70 f 2.8 is relatively expensive lens that offers a ton of versatility and a wide f/ 2.8 aperture throughout the whole range of zoom.

Here's why I hate using it.

It really boils down to this: 1) I don't like these focal lengths, and 2) I think it's a bulky compromise.


This isn’t about sharpness at the edges or how fast it autofocuses. Nothing technical. This is about do I take good photos at 24mm, 30mm, 35 mm? And the answer is no. To eliminate this lens from my process, I rely on two primes, and my 70-200. 

Let me know if you think I'm way off base in the comments (please be nice)
