My wife got me the Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L USM for my birthday.  Wow – its basically solid glass ;-).  I was really excited to use it to take pictures at the Christening of my niece as well as at the wedding ceremony of a good friend.  I have to admit – it’s been amazing.  Quite likely one of the most versatile lenses I have – especially in a range of lighting situations.
