  • Summary: I think they are selling defective items. I bought this to take on a trip and admit I didn't expect well when I got it. As soon as I started taking pictures, I noticed there was a spot on all my shots.

Buyers beware of the "White Box"

NadimC, Amazon

  • Summary: Buyers beware of the "White Box". I purchased mine and it was defective (very slow focus). It turns out most white box units are either refurbished or not under warranty. I had to pay an extra $300 to Canon to get the focus issue fixed and it was not 100% sorted out.

Hideous Lens

Dust, B&H Photo
4 May 2014
  • Excerpt: The lens exhibits the worst barrel distortion I have ever seen on ANY lens. Unless you want to spend all your time squaring up images in post, avoid this lens. Canon has a lot of nerve putting the L glass brand on this lens. The EF 28-135 that came with my 40D is much superior.
  • Cons: Terrible Distortion

  • Summary: I have brought the Canon EF 24-105 mm F/4.0 L IS USM Lens from The Bigvalueinc on Nov 30 via ebay and received the product yesterday. Today, I tried it to take picture but I found the hard time to focus in AF. Suppose, this lens with USM should be able to focus very quick.

fails on two fronts

johnnyjohnny, Canon
30 October 2012
  • Conclusion: i think this is a great lens if you know where it fails and don't need it for those uses. 1. no matter what some reviewers have claimed, this lens will not shoot all that well fully open at night or in low light. at best i'd say at f 4 this will give you fair to middling resolution. 2.
  • Pros: Superior build quality
  • Cons: bowed perspective, fair at best sharpness fully wide open aperture

Disappointed

Adorama
17 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Not consistently sharp. As a reconditioned lens, the warranty is not very generous. Canon did attempt to correct it but no improvement.Then the warranty ran out! Since sold the lens and I am using the EFS zoom lens. Half the price and better image quality.
  • Pros: Has a red ring
  • Cons: Heavy, Not as sharp as it should

refurb regret

Adorama
10 April 2011
  • Excerpt: There is no doubt that this model is a superior lens, in general. However, My particular lens has an issue with the stabilization module. During the warranty period the noise I heard seemed to fit with descriptions of normal IS function.
