Sorry, but the emperor has no clothes

  • Excerpt: I have to agree with an earlier post by Ron Mastel of Phoenix...while this is a very nice walk-around lens it is not in the same class as ANY of the other L-series glass with which I am familiar.

Not so great

  • Summary: Optically this lens did not meet my expectation. For an L lens this is a disappointment however I still gave it 3 stars because it is useful if you want lightweight set up for shooting outdoor.

Soft around the edges

17 April 2015
  • Excerpt: Don't understand the great reviews on this Canon 24-105L. I've had 2 of these lenses and they were both very soft around the edges to about 1/4 of the way into the frame. I've also talked to other professional photographers who confirm this. Not really useable for high-end landscape photography.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Soft focus around edges

out of focus perimeters

  • Summary: close up pictures - have to account for a major cropping to remove out of focus perimeters. cropping cuts back on quality for enlargement of pictures.

Meh, Disappointed in my first L Lens.

RayDSM, Amazon

  • Summary: I dont see a $300 difference in image quality over my old 28-135 F4-5.6. I may be crazy but i think the macro was better on the 28-135mm too. If i could hit the undo button and get my old 28-135mm back, I would. I'm disappointed but hey, maybe its user error.

Not the best for video

Hanner, B&H Photo
30 April 2014
  • Excerpt: We bought the 5D Mark III with this lens for our production team and frankly it's a bit dissappointing. This lens is dedicated to be used strictly for video, so this is not a review of its still image quality. It has nice bokeh, but it's not as sharp as I'd like from a $[$] lens.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Not as sharp as expected, Not sharp enough, Too Soft For Video
