Pros: size, weight, build, sharpnes, zoom
Cons:
price

got it instead of 24-70 f2.8. After long research and analysing reviews decided that both lenses are excellent products but 24-105 is more versatile, more walk around rather that 24-70 which gives me too limited zoom. I didn't get convinced that i can carry heavy glass for hours and feel OK. Very rarely i need f2.8, i will get a good prime for that. IS works great in dim light. Lens fits great my 30D, size, weight and balance wise. I did test the lens and imagas are really sharp, of course at f4 are tiny soft but as expected. Short post processing fixes it.
this is my second L glass and i'm very pleased with Canon.
My first was 70-200 L f 4.0, both copies are great and don't have any flaws. Contrast and accuracy of the colors are outstanding. Maybe I have been lucky so far or shoping at Newegg really helps in getting a great product.
good luck
