    5 Stars all the way

    Posted .

    If you need a lens that can do it ALL, look no further. I got mine as a kit but I use it for most of my pictures. Pictures at home, outdoors, events, birthdays, beach, playgrounds and anything short distance is all covered. Perfect lens for travel photography. 24mm gives you an AMAZING wide angle allowing you to take family portraits in a small room with low lighting and no flash using ISO 1600 and the lens wide open. Pictures are SHARP and the colors are very vibrant. This lens hardly comes off my camera unless I am shooting distant wildlife or shooting macro. If this lens comes in f2.8 in the future, I'll go for it. Buy it before the price of this lens goes up again.

    AWESOME LENSE

    I had to jump off the lens cliff. I just needed to experiment and grow with my camera. There is absolute truth in the quality of your photos as you jump up to a Cannon L lens, this one has catapulted my photography to the next level. I am thoroughly enjoying this lens. TRY IT :)

    BEST WALK AROUND LENS

    Posted .

    GREAT WALK AROUND LENS FOR MEDIA EVENTS, CLUBS, BARS, ETC. TOO EXPENSIVE FOR A F4. IT SHOULD BE A F2.8.

    Canon - EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Standard Zoom Lens

    |
    Posted .

    This lens is miles above the 28-135 IS, it's built much better feels better in your hands, and the controls are a delight to work with. You're getting every penny you pay for this in quality and technology with this lens and rest assured it WILL perform. Of course we all could wish it was cheaper, but professional camera gear is just this way... when I go out to do landscape and wildlife photography my jeep triples in value as soon as I put the camera bag in the back. The Image Stabilization system in this camera is great, leave it on always, it's sensitive enough to help even absorb the flicker of the mirror in your camera. You don't have to switch it off when you mount it on a tripod. While it will not save every shot and blur is always a possibility when you go below 1 60th of a second with any lens but I have had great luck using this to hand hold images down to as little as 1/4 of a second some of them turn out some of them don't but the fact that ANY of them turn out is impressive to me and proof the technology works. You need to know HOW to use the IS; however, it's important that you allow the internal gyros time to spin up before you take the shot this takes about a half a second. Learning to see the photo before it happens and anticipating the shot is all part of this process, allowing the lens a half second to spin up to speed will enable you to utilize the full potential of IS The circular aperture of this camera works well and allows you to get the depth of field you want without the annoying jagged edges in out of focus items that lenses with standard aperture blades will give you. Bokeh is a little weak, but we are only at f4, so that is expected. Speaking of F4 it lets in a fair amount of light, I have not noticed any Vignetting at any focal length, but shooting on a 1.6 sensor crops out the edges... Compared side by side with the 28-135 on a Rebel XTi the shots taken with this lens are easily recognizable as more contrasty and sharper. (the 28-135 IS STILL a great lens, however) As with any lens, this one has its characteristics that you will need to get use to. Flare is very minimal in all but the most extreme lighting situations. However when you do encounter flare (usually only happens when your TRYING to get the lens to flare out on you) you usually get a sharp jagged object with a halo around it, If you're trying to create a purposeful flare effect that looks good this is not the lens to use. If you just bought the Rebel XTi, this is the kind of lens you are going to need to utilize all ten million pixels on the camera. So if you buy this lens, congratulations you have just reached the top of technology and optical performance. If treated right this lens will provide you with a lifetime of images of uncompromising quality.

    Great Lens for Groups and Portraits

    |
    Posted .

    After getting this L lens, I see why pros use them. I used this lens on a 7D for shooting an extended family, then individual families, portraits and groups of 2-5 in-between. I did not have to change the lens and all I had to worry about was positioning my lights. The focal length is ideal for rapid composition. Also f/4 is actually better to shoot at and not anything with less depth of field. I have an f/1.2 that actually gave me focus problems with groups - the front person will be out of focus but the person right behind would already be out of focus. The f/4 gives me enough depth of field separation from the backgrounds but everyone in the group in focus. All of my shots were well composed, sharp, beautiful color. Best of all the family was ecstatic with the results!

    One of the great Canon lenses

    Posted .

    Miles of text have already been written about this lens, so I'll just say that it is my first "L" series lens, and is everything I hoped it would be. Before this lens, I'd also been using two very high quality non-L Canon's; the 100mm f/2.8 macro, and the EFS10-22 super-wide. (Plus the trusty EFS17-85IS.) I use a Canon 7D body. The 100 and 10-22 were the most expensive lenses in my bag before now, and consistently delivered the best results of any of my lenses, regarding color and sharpness; particularly the 100. (I'd read that both the 100 and the 10-22 were as near to "L quality" as you could get, without buying an L---so I wasn't really expecting the L lens to blow me away, as if I were migrating from a cheap kit lens straight to an L; more like, I hoped it would provide a subtle, but still noticeable improvement.) The image quality is terrific, top-notch, and the f/4 throughout the zoom range is so much more useful and enjoyable than I'd anticipated, for rendering blur. Another pleasant discovery was how close I could get to a subject, whether I'm at 24mm or 105, and still focus... I've turned out some wonderful close-ups shot at 105 this way, standing inches from the subject. The included lens hood is a nice feature, given the price; wish more Canon lenses came with their hoods. When it is stowed backwards on the lens, it partially blocks the manual focus ring, which took some getting used to, in order to be able to find the ring without looking. The Image Stabilization is quiet - often so quiet, I had to check a few times that I'd not turned it off by accident. The lens is my heaviest yet, but by no means uncomfortable. I have no regrets with this lens, and can easily see it being my most-used lens, within a short while.

    Outstanding

    Posted .

    This easy-to-use standard zoom lens can cover a large zoom area ranging from 24mm wide-angle to 105mm portrait-length telephoto, and its Image Stabilizer Technology steadies camera shake up to three stops. Constructed with one Super-UD glass element and three aspherical lenses, this lens minimizes chromatic aberration and distortion. The result is excellent picture quality, even at wide apertures. Canon's ring-type USM gives silent but quick AF, along with full-time manual focus. Moreover, with dust- and moisture-resistant construction, this is a durable yet sophisticated lens that meets the demands of advanced amateur photographers and professional photographers alike. The micro feature on this lens is over looked but a stand out in it self the image quality and the ability is out standing

    This is a very good everyday lens

    |
    Posted .

    This is a very good general purpose lens, and it is the lens that spends the most amount of time on my camera body. So if you can only afford to buy one "L" series lens buy this one. And buy the camera body separately (don't get the package deal with the kit lens). The EF 28-105mm F/4L IS USM is well built and worth the price, and its a better lens, then the kit lens...trust me.

    Best "Walk around lens" on the Market

    Posted .

    I originally rented one of these lenses for a vacation to the caribbean and man was I impressed. At the time I owned the 18-55 IS, 50mm f/1.4, and 70-300mm. This lens blows them all out of the water. the image clairity and color reproduction was professional class even on my Rebel XTi. If you are looking for a great all purpose zoom lens with a fantastic IS this is it. I have taken a few pictures with my newly acquired (purchased) lens and post them on my computer at work. I am frequently asked where I found the pictures, and when I tell people that I took them, they are always suprised. Well worth the money!!!!!

    Great go to lens

    The lens is a wonderful general purpose lens covering a nice distance range from wide angle to close up. There is nice depth of field and clean, sharp photos with good detail. I spent a long time deciding about this lens since I am an amateur photographer and the pro lens was a bit pricey. But I am super happy I decided to purchase it as it is incredibly versatile. If you can only buy one lens this would be a good choice, it will get you through a variety of photo opportunities successful ly.

    Better than I could imagine it to be.

    Posted .

    I really had a hard time making the decision to by the lense as opposed to upgrading my camera body. I kept thinking, how much better could it be than than what I'm using now. First time I took the lense out, I swear that what I was seeing on lcd was noticably sharper, more deeply saturaed, just better than I was used to seeing. I'm not sure if it was just me, but every time I looked at the previews, I kept thinking, wow. When, I finally am able to afford another camera body, I'll be set with a great lense to mount to it.

    The Canon - EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens is a perfect short range zoom lens in the Canon L-series and is well deserving to be there. It has super sharp focus and a great depth of field range for any type of photography. I have found no negatives in the use of this lens!

    Another Staple Lens in the Canon L Series Lineup

    |
    Posted .

    I was looking for my next lens to supplement my 70-200 f2.8 IS II and this lens was the next logical step. I did not buy the non IS f2.8 version in this lens because I do some action photography and needed some image stabilisation. Not to mention it was cheaper. This lens performs as you would expect from an L Series lens. Super clear, sharp images with fast auto focus. The build on this lens is stout to say the least. If you do not own this lens, are a serious photographer, and do not have an equivalent L Series, go get it!

    My go to lens

    Posted .

    I was in the middle of Nowhere Kansas when my go to lens broke. I looked up Best Buy on my iphone and found it's replacement at a Best Buy100 miles away. I drove there and they took care of me even though I didn't have my card with me, and gave me great financing. I couldn't have been more delighted with the service I got, the availability of a difficult item and the financing. Great lens and a great job, Best Buy!

    Not the best L lens but good

    |
    Posted .

    This is an overall good lens, especially for the price. I compared it to my 70-200 2.8L and the sharpness and response is not quite there. But an L lens with the focal range it offers for under $1,000 its hard to complain. All in all I am pleased. If I had the money I would get the better/newer 24-70 2.8L, but I don't

    Good quality lens, has produced some very sharp images, wish the f/stop went down to 2.8. Other than that, I highly recommend it for use with a full frame SLR
