Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, (tested with cropped-frame APS-C body)

Camera Labs

  • Summary: There’s no denying the Canon EF 24-105mm is a high quality lens. It has decent optics, the excellent mechanical and build quality you’d expect from Canon’s L series, while the USM auto-focusing and Image Stabilisation are both very effective in use.
  • Pros: Canon 'L' build and mechanical quality., Effective IS and quick USM focusing., Polariser-friendly internal focusing., Compatible with full-frame bodies.
  • Cons: Lacking wide-angle on cropped bodies., Relatively expensive., Fringing visible even on cropped-frame., Less compelling if you're not going full-frame.

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

Camera Labs
1 June 2006
  • Summary: The lens did however have a rocky start, with early models suffering from an internal flare problem , forcing returns and delaying wider distribution. These issues seem to have been solved now though, and certainly the versions we've tested exhibited no problems in this regard.
  • Pros: Useful wide to short telephoto range, Effective anti-shake IS capability, Fast and quiet USM focusing motor, Polariser-friendly internal focusing
  • Cons: Relatively expensive (at list price), Corners slightly soft at telephoto end, 24-70 f/2.8L has better build and focusing, 17-40mm f/4L an affordable alternative
