Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
Standard Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras
I have the Canon kit lens – 18-55mm, but it’s only a f/3.5-5.6. When I take pictures in the house there just isn’t enough light sometimes. I have to crank up the ISO or I adjust my shutter speed so much that it just wont work for hand held. It doesn’t take long after you buy your first DSLR camera to realize f/2.8 is pretty awesome!
Now who has the best deal today… Amazon has it listed for $1329.00 + Free Shipping!
Official Product Description:
The Zoom Lens EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM was developed as the successor to the EF28-70mm f/2.8L USM lens released in November 1993. Featuring a new optical system design, the new zoom lens delivers an expanded zoom range with a 24 mm wide-angle focal length, ideally suiting it to digital image sizes, while also maintaining or improving on the outstanding image quality of the superseded model.Moreover, the power of the focusing lens group has been increased to allow a minimum focusing distance of just 0.38 meters, the shortest in its class at the time, throughout the entire zoom range. The new EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM also features a circular diaphragm, to give better background blur, and utilizes only lead-free glass optics in consideration of the environment.

The Canon EF-S 60mm lens has great reviews. The thing I liked about the reviews was it seemed to be popular not just macro, but also portrait.
