This is a wonderful studio lens and can produce very sharp image. And it is a perfect compliment to 70-200 f2.8 IS for wedding photographer

However it is very heavy and hard I can hardly go below shutter speed of 1/80

The Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L lens is a great workhorse. I don't find it to be particularly excellent, but it does everything very well. When shooting weddings, I end up doing most of the photos with the 24-70, because I know it'll deliver good results.
The biggest negative is the weight - it's definitely not a light lens!
