Great lens...Good lens...I also point out that if you are shopping for a body, you can get a great deal on a 5D (MK II or MK III) or 6D kit, which includes the 24-105 f4 L....The lens is fast enough for many low light situations, the image quality is excellent edge to edge, at least with a sensor crop camera.
