Pros: Price, light weight, good built, really close to the "L" in sharpness, silent STM focus
Cons:
CA, Power need to be on to even "manual" focus, stop down to get to the "L" sharpness

The real world experience is I could not tell the difference in a photo taken by this lens and the 24-105L, even wide open. This is not the sharpest 24-105 lens, but it is the fact that the "L" version is not a very good performer that makes this lens kinda outstanding (I owned and shot 2 copies of the "L" before).
This lens is robust and well built, zoom and focus rings are smooth, IS works very well. It is a good cheap walk around lens. Listed at half the price of the "L", it is a good buy. Bundled with the 6D, it is a no brainer to own it.
