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

Review Date: Aug 22, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: IS, Focal length, weight
Cons:
Bokeh

I bought this lens a year and a half ago to change my old EFS 17-85mm IS and all I can say is ooooh!! This is a really great (but easy to carry) lens. I like this lens very much in two different ways. First of all "ergonomics". It's quite light and small and, at the same time, it is very well built. Focus and zoom rings are perfect and give you a very precise control. IS works really well and AF too, though I usually shoot in quite well light conditions. On the other side, image quality is superb. Really good contrast, saturation and sharpness. Finally, the only thing that make this lens just excellent and not perfect (in my opinion) is the poor quality of bokeh in high contrast backgrounds such as light through leaves.

Pros: IS, focal length
Cons:
Barrel distortion @ 17mm, quite soft at the corners.

The power of this lens resides in its versatility. It's focal length and IS makes it perfect if you can carry only one lens. I have found autofocus fast and accurate event in low light conditions. I think it's very expensive if it is buyed new, but you can get it used at a very interesting price (you should read my ratings taking this into account). Ah! IS really works Smile

This is my first L series and I'm amazed. I think it's perfect (for the price). Very sharp photos, superb colors and very fast focus.
