The 24-105mm f/4L IS USM has finally been replaced with a sharper replacement
The Canon 24-105mm lens is an excellent lens. I still own mine because I find it really hard to let go of my IS and the extra reach of the 105mm. Sadly Canon chose to shorten this lens to a 24-70mm version and give us IS on a f/4 lens instead of the f/2.8 where we really wanted it.
I’ve reviewed the Canon 24-70 f/2.8L II USM lens and it was the sharp lens that we were all hoping it would be, but it’s lack of IS has proved to be a challenge in the real world. As a result, I’m going to give this new f/4 lens a try to see if I should forgo 2.8 in favor of getting IS back.
I’ve got the Canon 24-70mm f/4L IS USM in my hands and am reviewing it now, so stay tuned to see which one I end up with!
