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

24-105lisusm
Review Date: Dec 16, 2006 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated

 
Pros: Looks well built - good range, smooth operation
Cons:
F4 is restrictive, Soft focus and flares badly worst of all both copies I tried had dreadful CA on the edge

I have tried two lenses both with severe edge CA with a 400d.

Neither was lens was sharp, you keep trying to make yourself believe it is sharp - I compared 105 with 100 on the 100-400L and they don't compare.

Also the lens flare can be quite alarming.

I have written letter to Canon about this lens - which I doubt they will even respond to - Just had a full refund on the second lens after giving up on ever getting a good one - you waste too much time !

I will rethink my lens strategy without L lenses - if this is the quality they are not worth it.
