    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.

    Almost the perfect general purpose lens

    By 

    from Kentucky

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

    The build quality and zoom range are excellent and the focusing is spot-on. My only real complaint, other than wishing it was a 2.8, is that the images are not quite as sharp as I would like. Don't get me wrong, the images it produces are very good to great, but I would not rate them as excellent. That being said, unless you are a professional photographer who demands the absolute sharpest images, this lens will do nicely. For this zoom range I have not found a better lens.

    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.
