Pros: Sharpness, Large Aperture, good for low light, fast focus, resistant

Cons: too heavy, at 70 mm a bit soft in the corners. No IS.

Opinion: I have this lens from 5 years now. It is fast, provide good quality of image, sharp. I'm using it as an all around lens. Even if I've dropped it a couples of times , it's still working well and it is a wonderful lens. Maybe it is to heavy comparing with other lenses from its class, but it's an L lens. Wide aperture makes it suitable for many situation that's why I have it all time in my bag.

Pros: Construction quality, tonal yield, sharpness

Cons: Weight

Opinion: Lens with a great yield. It is on the second-hand market at now reasonable prices, although still high. Nothing to say. excellent focus, excellent color rendering, coming from the 24-105 first version the difference immediately jumps to the eye. Strange the mechanism now abandoned by canon, so at lower focals the body is longer than at high focals. The lampshade is quite cumbersome, but you can always keep it mounted without problems. Like all light zooms it is quite heavy and challenging, although it is well balanced with a body like the 5d mk3, but the photographic quality pays for everything. Very highly recommended. I dare not imagine the quality of the new version.

Pros: Versatility, sharpness, vividness.

Cons: Weight and vignetting at 24 mm.

Opinion: I have this lens since the time of film, after thousands of shots has become almost an extension of my eye. She has her age but she does her duty in full and I have very few criticisms to make. Sure at 24mm vignette, all right, but you can fix it in post I closing the aperture one or two stops. I could only deprive myself for the 24mm USM II. See. I'm keeping it tight for now.

Pros: Opening, phenomenal construction, well-distributed weight, fast and silent, tonal, three-dimensional, blurry high-definition, clear, true-to-life, delicate and true colors. Wonderful hood. Discrete and full time manual focus functions.

Cons: Variability of the models on the market, light vignetting at TA, rendered to the unconvincing edge.rnLent to be tamed and studied.

Opinion: We start from the assumption that I had dreamed for 6 years to have this lens, which annoys a lot about the final judgment. Rn I could test the 24-105 L several times, so as to convince me in a short time that it is the most obvious between the lenses, something very successful But without too much "flavor," an ordinary handyman without real reasons to buy it unless it costs little and does his job as expected. On 24-70L, things take a completely different bend. You find yourself with a 1kg box in your hands, heavy, but artfully distributed. It works better on a Series 1 body or on a car with bg without it, in my opinion the weight weighs in an excellent way. Lens is poetry; Unfortunately the variability of patterns leads to the foundations of shaving blades or bottlenecks just enough.rnSpecially soft, soft and non-nervous, balanced, soft and deep colors, a general rendering that ensures a certain harmony in the shot.rn Vignetting is easily Removable with slow lens distortion, but not always necessaryTAA shows a very good clarity, which reaches the maximum peaks at f9 / 10rnI personally I see in the hood the best ally, I love the fact that it covers the little elongated barrel extension giving it a sense of uniformity, unfortunately making the optic very visible and Easily recognizable.rnThe bird is fast and silent, impeccable in any condition; Despite these observations, I could hardly notice that on modular low-tech cars tends to blur the fire even in full light, often revealing a problem to be checked. The real problem of this lens is its actual use difficulty.rnIt is not Objective that you learn to use right away and before you know how to use it best it requires attention.rn

Pros: color rendering, out of focus, series L, three-dimensional '

Cons: hood

Opinion: I have this goal to be six months, found at a fair price on the market, before I was in possession of 24-105 L. Needless to say, the leap was really significant, the photos now have more character, a three-dimensionality that I sometimes "moved" and that makes the subject appear "live", coupled with the 6D I'm taking away some satisfaction. Waiting to leave for the first real trip to test it definitely are very happy with our purchase. It remains to say that it is not a simple lens to be used even if the auto focus module is very precise several photos I found myself having to discard since the large sensor of the FF, the HPs reduced to 2.8 and the way I shoot (recomposed) It makes things a little more difficult. With the 24-105 L it IS is easier to have a loooong ferma.rnLa image would recommend? YES, one is as big as a house. Some photos are poetry:) rn
