| p.2 #5 · Canon 24-105: You guys were right |
Well, I went to Best Buy tonight to look at some stuff and while there I stopped by the cameras. They happened to have a 6D with a 24-105 on it...nice camera! Since I've been debating on possibly getting a 17-55 and selling the 24-105 I was interested to try some of the lenses there. Other than the 24-105, all they had was the 18-55, 18-135, and 28-135.
I have to say, I don't know that I could go back to one of those lenses after having the 'L' lens, regardless of image quality. There's something about the way the 24-105 feels that makes me wanna keep it. It just feels solid in my hands, it has a nice weight, the glass is big (77mm), it's smooth, doesn't rattle, etc.....all in addition to great IQ. The 18-135 and 28-135 just rattled and felt like they were going to fall apart. Granted, they're demo lenses and get beat on all day, so it's not a fair comparison, but I don't think I can sell the 24-105 unless the 17-55 build quality is MUCH better than the 18-135/28-135.
