Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM

24-105lisusm
Review Date: Sep 29, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharp. Excellent contrast and colour rendition. Good range for everyday and walkaround lens.
Cons:
Position of the zoom ring. Not as sharp at f4. Heavy.

It is a bit expensive, and interestingly enough like a few others I had to get to know this lens before appreciating it. I've had the lens for a month now and a few hundred shots into it, while post-processing some older shots taken with my previous lenses, the differences really became apparent, and I really came to appreciate the true quality of this lens. The IS is new for me, and I'm becoming a big fan.
My first L lens, bought only a month before this one was the 70-200 f4, which puts the bar pretty high... this one is very close behind.

Pros: Incredibly sharp, very smooth, light, excellent colour rendition.
Cons:
I now want the 24-105 L too !

Got this new lens last week. I can't stop shooting ! My first piece of L glass, and I'm not disapointed. Replaces my 75-300 III USM and the 70-200 makes it look like a toy lens by comparison. Really a joy to work with. Can't wait to get the 1,4X to go with it.
