Pros: Image quality, zoom range, good colours, stabilizer, strong L-series version, sharpness, autofocus

Cons: "Only" F4

Opinion: It is in use as my standard zoom lense, very good working with APS-C and also FF. Best sharpness results with a aperture range between f5.6 and f8. The lense is my first choice for travel. In my opinion there must be more aperture possible than F4. My proposal for a new version of the lense would be F2.8 At the moment I don't see a better lense of Canon for this zoom range. Only the EF 24-70 2.8 L USM II is interesting, but it costs more than double of the price of the 24-105.

Pros: Convenience of use with coverage of common focal points, good stabilization

Cons: Sharpness not at the top at TA, better closed at 5.6, not bright

Opinion: Purchased together with the D5II as part of the kit. At first I was puzzled by the low brightness. Over time I have believed myself and I consider this an essential lens both as a unique lens when I do street photography, but very comfortable even in the rare weddings I have done. It is not perfect, but it certainly represents a good compromise.

Pros: Robust, tropicalized, beautiful colors, fast and silent MAF, used now is within everyone's reach

Cons: 24mm pronounced distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations at all focal points

Opinion: A Canon house classic, I think it's among the best-selling goals in the history of the red white house. I used it for five years, first on APSC and then on FF, taking it with me on countless trips and excursions both in Italy and abroad. Robustness and reliability make it a perfect travel lens in terms of versatility on the focals, less so if you look for the optical quality that is not particularly high here despite offering a really good color rendering. In fact, it suffers from pronounced distortion, especially at 24mm, which can be safely resolved in post but the same cannot be said of chromatic aberration. Compared to today's all-rounder zooms it is now a dinosaur, but with the disposal of many reflex kits you can take it home at very affordable prices, ideal for those who approach photography on a small budget.

Pros: focal range, robust, very sharp, holds well backlight, excellent construction, in 2021 it is at very good prices. stabilizer very good

Cons: excessive weight, bulky, distortion at all focal points, blurred so so, ugly sunstars

Opinion: one of the most popular modern optics. covers practically 90% of the most commonly used focal points. a real all do. robust and well built, indeed too robust and too thought out. the deformation is easily corrected in pp and therefore I do not find it a major problem. if it didn't weigh that much, it would be pretty much the only lens I'd use. in 2021 it is used at very good prices. I preferred it to cousin 24-70f4. I preferred the more focal points of the more clarity and I am not at all repentant indeed! I strongly recommend it also because in canon there are no alternatives in handymen. there is no 28-300 vr as in nikon so either this 24-105 or the cheap version 25-105 f3.5-5.6 or the latest version mk2 of the 24-105 which however costs a lot. in the backlight it holds well, but sunstars practically do not exist and are very ugly. to be used in the backlight I preferred the optical 28-135 IS that I will sooner or later buy back.

Pros: All-rounder, reliable, robust, tropicalized, stabilized, derisory used price, well balanced mounted on 5D III

Cons: nobody

Opinion: My favorite goal, so much so that I bought one in reserve because I only use this 90%. I'm a photojournalist, but I'm not one of those photographers from burst shots, on the contrary I'm a single-shot sniper, so I need a reliable lens because I don't have a second chance and I have to move within a few moments. I find the distortions pleasant and I do not correct them in post-production. If you take a scenographic photograph to be processed in post-production, this is certainly not the right goal. If instead you take a type of photography, like mine, shooting in jpeg (I keep I don't know why the raw in the second card, but then recycle them) and limiting the PP into strictly necessary things, such as adjusting slightly and only serves, lights, shadows and tonals, then it's perfect. dark? Personally I find it bright the right, both day and evening, but I do not like blurry backgrounds, so exaggerated openings do not interest me, indeed I work very much in the middle diaphragm and I often tend to close it, but the photos do not seem to me to be dark. I don't get super bright lights, but that's exactly what I want. In a nutshell, it is a well-constructed and honest goal, in the sense that it tells the truth, which does its duty reliably, therefore, in line with canon philosophy.
