    I wasn't a believer in L glass, IS, or zoom. I believe that prime glass is very sharp, I wasn't going to pay for zoom capabilities since I would rather utilize my feet, and I wasn't going to pay for IS since I would rather have a faster lens. Chapter Two... Ok, so I gave in and I bought an EF-S 10-22 and I love the sharp images it produces. This lens is what got me off my high horse named "Prime." Shortly after I bought the wide angle I overheard from other users that the lens was "L" quality without the price. This enticed me to look into a mid range zoom L lens for my arsenal of soul hunting gear. Chapter Three... I struggled between the 24-70 and the 24-105. Since I'm writing a review on the 24-105, chances are I bought the 24-105. I landed on the 24-105 due to the extra length it offers while taking a gamble that IS would counter balance the low light capabilities of the 2.8. The IS isn't as effective as 2.8, but it isn't bad at all. The clarity of this lens is absolutely remarkable and well, I believe in L glass now. I WILL NOT buy any other piece of glass unless it has the letter L on it; this includes my living room windows. I also want to add that the red ring looks very stunning. To those that may be going through a struggle between the F4 and the F2.8; unless you enjoy very shallow DOF then I would suggest to save a couple dollars, get the 24-105.

    I have used this lens with great satisfaction until, after about 3 years, it broke down completely in the middle of a shoot. It turned out the diaphragm needed to be replaced at considerable expense. A little internet research revealed that this is a known problem with this lens, although there has been no acknowledgement of that from Canon. I am a long-term Canon fan (40 years!) but I have to recommend avoiding this lens until its flaws have been corrected.

    Best walk around lens I've had

        Comments about Canon Black EF 24-105MM F4L IS USM Standard Lens:

        This lens is why I am shooting full frame (5DII) as well as crop (7D0. Very good performance, with filter on, is nearly waterproof. Great for shooting coast scenics in the winter, snow in winter, Portland gardens in the rain, etc Mt Hood, St. Helens. For backpacking, much lighter than f2.8 24-70 and more reach. I pair it with f.4 70-200L is. Also good for portraits because of f4.

            Comments about Canon Black EF 24-105MM F4L IS USM Standard Lens:

            My second purchase of this lens as the first one was stolen from me. That sentence should tell you how I feel about this lens. I bought this one with the 5DmkIII kit but would have bought the lens separately if it was not available as a kit lens. Make NO bones about it, people have a bad preconception of most kit lenses, that is not the case with this lens, it is after all an "L" lens for a reason The 24-105f4L is USM is my all time favorite walk around lens.

                  Comments about Canon Black EF 24-105MM F4L IS USM Standard Lens:

                  This is my first L lens and I have a slightly mixed opinion so far. The build quality, focus speed/accuracy and general image quality seem fantastic. However, I have not found the sharpness to be quite what I hoped for; on center it's similar to my previous non-L tele, and not as good as my inexpensive 50mm f1.8 II. It is a versatile lens, but with a fairly significant weight & cost.

                  Comments about Canon Black EF 24-105MM F4L IS USM Standard Lens:

                  I love this lens...I use it often...even over my 24-70mm...with the IS this lens is as good as the 24-70mm. It is very light and on the 5D3 and 1DX it is very sharp at 70mm...it does have some vignetting at 24mm...but nothing that cannot be corrected in post processing...A great all purpose lens!

                    This lens is great if you are just starting to purchase L lenses. This is amazing all around and great for video, basically an all purpose L lens. It allows you to experiment with many focal lengths to let you know what lens to buy next. My only improvement would be a hybrid IS system (like in the 100mm macro L) and a faster aperture like f/2.8.

                        Comments about Canon Black EF 24-105MM F4L IS USM Standard Lens:

                        I purchased this in a "kit" with my 5D "classic" when the price dropped (prior to the release of the 5D marl ii). I have found that when using it carefully it produces stellar images, especially in the mid range of focal length and f . Last year I purchased a 5D Mark iii body (trouble with that body, but finally fixed by Canon in warranty). This November I photographed a wedding and paired the 24~105 with the Mark iii and the results were outstanding. This lens continues to produce tack sharp images, but when I need true saturation and sharpness and pin sharp images I use Zxxxs 21 and 35 EF primes.

                          Lens is faster auto focus, overall good photo results. But went to faulty in less than 2 years - power diaphragm issue. While search the issue on website, found this is common issue with this lens for many years. Why canon you didn't take an action - looks like only this lens is faulty for many in the L series.

                            This lens produces soft images, I would be hard pressed to label it an L lens. I would think it would work well for taking photos of your kids while at the park, the IS and zoom lens will come ln handy, and even though the images will not be that sharp, they will be acceptable photos that the family will enjoy viewing.
