Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM

ef70-200lisusm
Review Date: Dec 11, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,100.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: light weight, great contrast, IS REALLY WORKS!, very sharp
Cons:
doesn't come with tripod collar

Portable, usable, super high quality, etc... this is the best zoom lens I have ever used. It lives up to all of the claims and hype. I only wish the 24-105mm was half as good. Run, don't walk to your nearest dealer.

 
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM

24-105lisusm
Review Date: Dec 10, 2006 Recommend? no | Price paid: $1,000.00 | Rating: 5 

 
Pros: quiet, nice range on a full-frame body, focuses relatively closely, fast focussing, better than the kit lens but not 10X better
Cons:
not very sharp, IS doesn't work all that well, useless case, not sealed as well as other L lenses

Just purchased a 70-200mm F/4 L IS and it blows this lens out of the water (much sharper, higher contrast, and the IS works amazingly well). By comparison, the 24-105mm is a substandard lens. Maybe my copy is a dud.
