Canon Black EF 24-105MM F4L IS USM Standard Lens - 0344B002

This easy-to-use standard zoom lens can cover a large zoom area ranging from 24mm wide-angle to 105mm portrait-length telephoto, and its Image Stabilizer Technology steadies camera shake up to three stops.

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.

Great everyday Lens

By 

from Alabama, United States

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

So it is "L" glass and it has a great range and like most of the "L" series is built like a tank. I hike a lot and this guy seems to be great for landscapes and for some outdoor portrait shots as well. I love having f4 through out the zoom range. More often not, this is the lens that is on my camera. I shoot with a 6D and 7D MKII and on both bodies, this lens (like all my "L" glass) provides exceptional clarity. For the price point, it is hard to beat this lens. This was my first "L" glass and I agree with others; once you use a "L" series lens, it is hard to back.

Excellent all around choice

By 

from VA

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

I got this lens with my 5D Mk II, and traded it in on the EF 24-105 f/4L II IS when I bought my 5DsR. Still waiting for the new lens to come off back order, and am regretting having parted with the old one. I used it primarily for fine art photography, almost always AP setting with f/8 or higher numerical apertures to get sharp images with good depth of field. The lens has but one flaw (if you use it like I did at high apertures to avoid the awful MTF at f/5.6 and below), and that is that the lens cannot be locked, which means that if you point it down, it slides out toward maximum focal length. My understanding is that Canon can't install a lock on any IS lens. If this bothers you, don't buy IS. By the way, the image stabilization system is wonderful, and sets Canon apart from all their competition. I've shot hand held at 105 mm FL at 1/15 second with no blur - that's two full f/ stops better than non stabilized! Who on earth needs f/2.8, unless you are one of those folks who prefers out of focus backgrounds and doesn't know how to use Photoshop or GIMP.

Great Lens

By 

from Long Island City, NY

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

This is the best lens. I was using the EF-S f/4-5.6 IS and it takes beautiful photos but the lens takes photos 4 times as better. I recommend this lens.

Decent Kit Lens but "L glass" performance? Meh

By 

from New Mexico

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

I purchased this lens specifically with the plan to use it as a quality general purpose carry. This lens just isn't so brilliant at all around the edges (it's dark in fact) at 24mm, is a focal length that I use a lot, so I ended up buying a 24mm prime to cover for the deficiencies in this supposed "L glass". If Canon removed the L and the red stripe from this lens and reduced the price a few hundred dollars, I feel that it would be a good performing kit lens and a much better value. In addition, after having the lens less than a year with only moderate use, the focal length started creeping severely so bad that it would annoyingly zoom rather quickly to 24mm by itself when I was shooting above me and all the way to 105mm when I would try to shoot below me, so I had to dock it hard for build quality. Fortunately, Canon is repairing this under warranty, but will it start creeping again when I get it back in less than a year? No good! Worse than that, I had to foot the bill to ship and insure the lens back to Canon to fix their kit under warranty. Canon is releasing a newer version (the EF 24â€"105mm f/4L IS II USM) which I would gladly trade in my current version to Canon for the new one and pay the difference in price hoping they got the bugs out of version one. How about it Canon, do we have a deal?

Very nice, versatile lens

By 

from Taiwan

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

I bought this lens for a several reasons: it has a nice coverage range and use it as my go-to, walkabout lens; it can be used for wide angle shots for landscapes or for portrait work. Second, it is weathersealed which is an important consideration living in often muggy and wet Taiwan. It has an f/4 maximum opening regardless of the focal length; this can be all important if you like to shoot in Av mode. As for drawbacks, the most notable ones are: weight, lack of lock (especially annoying) and subsequent lens creep and no collar for mouting the lens directly to the tripod. It does come with a nice lens bag and good lens hood. The hood has a fabric-like material inside, not shiny, polished plastic which would cause some lens flare.

The Most Versatile Zoom Ever

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

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

The 24-105 is a fantastic daily zoom. It goes from a very wide 24mm to a short tele 105mm. The f/4 aperture may not be fast, but the IS is a good compensator for such drawback. The lens is fantastic for video work and day-to-day shooting in conditions with good lighting. I see fantastic sharpness from f/4 and on but the lens is quite distorted at the wider end.

Verified Buyer

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

I have gotten to see this lens on both a crop sensor and full frame (my 7DmkII and the 6D I bought for my girlfriend) and on both sensors it performs superb. I like to shoot at the longer end of the focal range, and this gives me enough reach that I'm not wishing for more, and it's wide enough also for the majority of the shooting that I do (on the crop sensor). On the full frame sensor, it's a very different feel but is still a great and useable length. For those who like to shoot at the wider end of the range, but occasionally need the extra reach, it's perfect on your full frame. As for image quality, yeah it has some distortion at the wide end, but it's not a noticeable enough amount in my opinion. The lens is extremely sharp and neither of us have ever experienced any focusing issue with it. Each time it's just tack sharp. I am not easy on my gear either, and this lens has held up extremely well. I haven't had any issue shooting in bad weather with it either. Unless I'm shooting sports or portraits, this lens is always on my camera. And even then, sometimes it's still on my camera for some portraits. For the price, this lens is a no brainer. If you don't own an L lens, then get this one first. It's a perfect example of the excellent quality that Canon produces
