.....because it behaves like a prime pretty much at any focal length. There are minor distortions (chromatic and non-linear) but unless you've got lots of straight lines and high contrast at the edge of the frame, you won't notice them and in any case, you can wipe them out 100% successfully with Canon's DPP software that comes in the camera box. On my 5Dii this lens has grown roots - there are only a few times for average subjects that it needs to be removed from the body. Not too heavy, super-fast focus and excellent IS, Dust and moisture sealed and razor sharp with cotton-wool bokeh - fabulous for portraits at 90mm. I have printed at A1 and A2 a couple of architectural shots taken at f8 and the prints are astonishing in their sharpness.

OK, there may be better glass about, but not at this price! I defy anyone to persuade me to spend more than twice as much and prove that I would perceive better results.

Get one - you'll congratulate yourself for ever more!

I have an EF 17-40 f/4 L, an EF 70-200 f/4 L IS and an EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 L IS in my Lowepro Nature Trekker, but this lens is what's attached to my EOS-5D most of the time - and whenever my 5D is stored in my backpack when I'm out and about, it's stored with this lens on it. That's about the best recommendation I could give.

The zoom range is great for everything from architecture to landscapes to portraits and it even performs nicely with either of the EF extension tubes (12 or 25) attached. Even without them, it focusses up nice and close to 0.45m - only very marginally outside the 24-70 f/2.8 L's closest focussing distance of 0.38m (which I'm guessing is probably the other lens you're considering if you're taking the trouble to read this).

OK, so it's not as fast as the 24-70, but the better zoom range, the 2nd generation IS (which is worth 2-3 stops on a good day - i've taken some acceptable shots hand-held at 1/15 sec) and its size (107mm versus 124mm) and weight (670g versus 950g) makes this a much better lens - for me anyway. No savings on filters though, as both lenses are 77mm diameter front elements. The fact that the 24-105 f/4 L IS costs about £140 or so less than the non-IS 24-70 f/2.8 L is actually only incidental and shouldn't influence you.

So if you're a slave to aperture, go ahead and get yourself the 24-70 f/2.8 L, but if its a great all-purpose lens that doesn't weigh much and fits in an average SLR zoom case, get this and go somewhere nice to take some great photos with the cash difference!

To summarise, this is an excellent all-purpose wide-short telephoto zoom lens with the image quality you'd expect from a Canon L series. Very highly recommended indeed.

I believe most Canon 5D MkII's come with this as the standard lens, and for good reason: it is immensely capable produced pin sharp clear images with little distortion. While I will often leave other lenses at home I will always take this one with me however tight space in may camera bag is.

The focal range is super it can take a tight close shot but extend out to pull something at a modest distance in, although the main benefit is framing and composition. If you have a full frame Canon and the budget then there is no excuse for not having this lens.

I purchased this lens almost 2 years ago. I have travelled the world with it since then and have not been disappointed. I have a 50d so the range is more like 38-168 which works well for most situations. Infrequently I would like a wider angle to capture more of a scene but there has to be a trade-off somewhere. The pictures are sharp with vibrant colours. The lens is a heavyweight and very robust. I have used it in dust and wet conditions with no adverse affects. The auto focus is quick and quiet. The manual focus ring is smooth and accurate with no play in the mechanism. It feels and looks like a quality piece of engineering and complements the camera. For a general purpose walk-around lens which has a timeless quality, this was my choice and I am continually pleased with the results. If I were to buy another lens now to complement this one, it would be a wide-angle for those landscape shots - but only if I had to buy another lens - I don't intend to. I expect this lens to last a lifetime and it certainly feels like it will do just that.

It's easy to see why the Canon 24-105mm f4 L lens is so popular esp for full frame users.
The attractive focal range covers a nice 24mm wide angle to a respectable 105mm at the top end. As your standard zoom this is an excellent choice to make and as you would expect from a Canon L lens, it's got good optics and superb build quality. But it's not quite a 5 star lens for a few reasons.

I'll list my pro's and cons points next with a summary afterwards


+ Very useful focal range combined with an above average speed of f4. f4 isn't fast (a fast zoom is really f2.8) but across this range it's a sensible choice for Canon to make.
+ Good optical performance, it's not perfect either but in the centre very sharp across the focal range. At the wide end as you expect for a full frame lens best to stop it down to around f8, but it's not that bad either wide open borders. At the 70mm length corner sharpness drops off a bit, and at 105mm it really needs stopping down on a full frame body to get improved edge performance.
+ Tank-like build quality. You expect good things from an L lens, this delivers. Fairly hefty weight wise (if you are used to using budget lenses before!), won't list this as a con due to the zoom range, L build and f4 speed you rightly don't expect a light lens! Just bear in mind if you put this on a 5dMkII/III with a grip and flash you're certainly going to notice it.
+ Is sealed against dust and moisture exactly as you expect for an L class lens
+ AF is quiet thanks to the USM AF motor, it is fast and I found accuracy on a variety of bodies (full frame and crop) to be very good.
+ Smooth background rendering, thanks to the 8 blade circular aperture quite nice in this respect.
