I bought this lens in a pack with the canon 5d body and what a pair they make!

This lens was designed for the 5d and was released at the same time. With the 5d being full frame you get the full 24mm at the wide end which is great and it goes all the way to 105mm with no croping/zoom factor typical of crop sensors...If you're using it on a 1.6 crop body you'll get say 39 - 168mm, not exactly wide but it has a handy zoom.

The lens is very well built and all the control rings are very smooth. Both rings sport rubber grips that are comfortable and easy to hold. There's a switch to turn off the IS and also one for the AF system. There's a window on the lens barrel giving distance information. The lens feels substantial and is quite chunky - I like it, it feels solid.

As a walkaround lens you really couldn't ask for much more. You have real wide angle at the botom end (24mm) and every usable focal length in between right up to 105mm. As a portrait lens it's superb giving you 50mm, 85mm and 105mm all in one. Now I know certain fixed focals will be better but for versatility and image quality this lens is excellent value. Colours are crisp and sharpness is really excellent. Detail again is really superb. Things can be sharpened up at the extremes a touch by stopping down a bit but the images are great either way. The lens produces a beautiful background blur too, very, very smooth - again excellent for portraits. The lens does extend about 1/3 of its length when zooming - this may factor into it for some folks making a choice.

Anyone taking a serious look at this lens knows a zoom lens is always a compromise but with this you won't necessarily feel compromised - it really delivers the goods across the range and it saves changing lenses.

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'll split this into two separate comments.

a) optically, my copy was hard to fault. It didn't show any of the soft images I've heard being complained about - in fact I was delighted with the shots I got with it. The lens is excellently versatile, and a pleasure to have on the camera.


b) it died suddenly and without any warning. The dreaded ERR #01 beast arrived. At 24mm it works close to how it should.
At lengths longer than that, it gets progressively worse till at 105mm it's unable to stop down and freezes the camera up.

This is well documented, with extensive forum discussions and moans - as you can understand - proliferating. Canon follows its usual line here and pretends its products are in need of no design/assembly rejig. In these lenses the electric diaphragm fails. The part isn't a crazy price but by the time you pay a Canon approved tech to fit it, you get a hefty bill to settle.

My EF 300mm F4 IS USM has failed in the exact same way - that's 2 of my 3 L lenses have died in identical fashion in about three weeks, and I'm hopping mad about it. So against some opinion you'll see, it's not just because a lens is a zoom that this happens.

And when the 300mm prime fails the bill is around a hundred pounds larger.

Canon continues to make faulty lenses and ignores its customers when very expensive products regularly fail outside warranty periods. If it had its customers' welfare at heart, this would have been fixed ages past - but it's still happening.

Car manufacturers wouldn't get away with this, but Canon obviously knows it can.

My 3* rating was a raise from the 1 * I felt like giving, and is due to the lens' nice performance during the time it actually works. Without the crappy build problem it would have been an easy 5 stars and glad to give it.
