The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens delivers strong sharpness at wide angles, but image quality really suffers when zoomed in—overall, it's priced too high for the performance it delivers.

  • +

    Long zoom range. Fixed maximum aperture. Solid L-series build. Excellent sharpness at wider angles. Optical stabilization. 1:4.3 macro magnification.

  • -

    Heavy distortion and noticeable vignette at wide angles. Very soft edges at longer focal lengths. Pricey.

Boasting the superb build, mechanical and optical quality found in the Canon L-Series Lenses and a widely used range of focal lengths, the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens is one of the best and most popular Canon general purpose lenses made.

Pro shooters have been asking Canon for an image-stabilized, wide-angle, general-purpose zoom with a constant aperture, weather resistance, and full-frame coverage. (Amateurs have a comparable one in Canon's $420 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens.

Looking at the pros list you could boldly state we deal here with an excellent instrument. There are two small “buts” though. Firstly, on a small APS-C sensor the maximum angle of view is 59 degrees so as much as a 38 mm lens gave on an analogue camera.

  • +

    excellent image quality in the frame centre,, very good or good image quality at the frame edge,, slight coma,, low astigmatism,, acceptable distortion,, good work against bright light,, low vignetting,, splendid work of autofocus,, good build quality and solid housing,, lens hood and soft case...

  • -

    high chromatic aberration at 24 mm.

The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 USM L IS is surely one of the better standard zoom lenses for full format EOS DSLRs but it's not perfect within this scope nonetheless. The resolution figures are generally very decent except for a pronounced border softness at 70mm @ f/4.

I love the range of this lens, the quality of L series lenses, the 77mm size, and the great image stabilization. I use this product both in the studio as well as sporting events for business as well as for my own children.

My very first premium lens and it exceeded my expectations. The image quality is superb, with a slight distortion open wide (but that can be fixed in post-process anyway). Its build quality is good as well, with a proven capability to withstand bad weather.

    Great IQ, stable IS, fast AF, good build quality, versatility

I bought this lens thinking it would be tack sharp. Yes, I know it's not a prime lens. However, I used it for a wedding ceremony and though the photos turned out just fine, compared to my sigma 24-105mm art zoom lens, it lacks sharpness in my opinion compared to the latter.

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.

I would recommend this camera for those looking for a sharp and versatile wide angle solution and a telephoto solution on a full frame camera.

    Weathersealed, sharp, great color, Excellent Image Quality. Image stabilization, Great Value

    Plastic, not 2.8 aperture, hood design with filters, loose distance ring

26 November 2013

This lens, though not nearly as sharp as my Canon EF 24-70 F2.8 II USM lens, is an excellent not too expensive, not too heavy, but a very good picture quality choice for a go everywhere, shoot anything glass. Image stabilization is a big plus too.

I bought this zoom in 2005. I did not like the 24-70 F2.8 to walk around. To big. The IS is incredible, IQ is oke and I love the range. That 35 mm extra at the end is very nice. I still think this is the most versatile zoom there is. Go on holiday, take this zoom and a EF 50mm F1.2L with you.

  • +

    Very nice relative small and light walk around lens with perfect range on FF. If you chose one (zoom)lens to take along this is maybe the one. IS is nice.

  • -

    Nothing special, F4.0 but that why it is small and light. Construction failure, my copy creeps like mad. I put an elastic string around the zoomring, that helps. But a lock would have been nice.

19 January 2012

Great value if you are able to buy it with a body (I got mine with a 5D back in the day). A very nice range, you can do a lot with just this lens. f4 is too slow for me now, Image Stabilization helps and is a nice feature. Pretty sharp, but nothing remarkable. Would be a well rounded lens for video.

  • +

    Excellent range, excellent value when bought with a camera body, sharp, Image Stabilization.
