Currently one of the best standard zoom options

  • Excerpt: Had I bought this at its original introductory price, I very likely would have returned it, but its current pricing makes it an appealing and viable option for a standard, walkabout lens on FF (I'm using it on a 6D).
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Focus shift

Great lens for general use, USM may need repairs

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 May 2015
  • Summary: The lens is a excellent for general use. After a few months I noticed that the lens had difficulty in focusing at infinity. I sent it in to Canon for warranty repair. They did find that the USM module was not working properly and replaced it.

Great for Sony a7s

Bob, B&H Photo
29 April 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought this primarily to provide image stabilization on my Sony a7s in video mode when hand holding or on a monopod. Image quality was also a very high priority. I use a Metabones EF to E adapter which allows the camera to electronically set/read the aperture and provides power for the lens...

Great Lens with Updated Optical Glass Coatings, Improved Image Stabilization, and 24mm Image Quality!

Lynn May, Amazon

  • Summary: I have to disagree with reviewers that say this is only a novelty lens. It is NOT. I'm a professional shooter and I can tell you that the main strength of this lens for MY use is it's optical quality at 24mm.

4.5 stars

GM, Amazon
16 February 2015
  • Summary: Pros: Impressively small & lightweight. Goes very well with lighter bodies like 6D. Sharp wide open. IS works (don't expect it to get you tack sharp photos when shooting 2-3 stops below 1/focal length rule; you'll get useable pictures, but not tack sharp). Cons: Little bokeh.

  • Excerpt: Previously used the 24-105mm. I was thrilled that one of the features on this lens included a lock to keep it from extending when carrying on a strap! Good quality lens all around!

Typical "Solid-Build" Canon Lens

Deryk South F.L.A., B&H Photo
7 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I've recently purchased this lens but have also used one in the past. I have primarily shot landscapes and buildings using a 6D and 7D MII.I've always been impressed with the fit, finish and tightness surrounding the Canon L lenses. This one is no exception. It feels solid in your hands.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction

Good lens, not great

dangerh33, B&H Photo
26 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I wanted a catch-most lens to go with my 70-200mm. For years, I've seen people shooting with their 24-70's on all the time and swearing by them. Usually I run and gun with a 14mm, 16-35mm, 50mm and 70-200mm.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

A good buy

Chorlton M/c, B&H Photo
20 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I considered 3 lenses namely Sigma 24-105 f4 DG OS HSM and the Canon 24-105 f3.5 to 5.6 IS STM. I read mixed reviews of the Sigma added to which it has not been available at B&H for some weeks, the Canon 24-105 had little written about it (today there is an article in the UK magazine Amateur...

Sharp, minimal distortion, but heavy

GEG, B&H Photo
13 January 2015
  • Excerpt: Useful for parties, scenery where frequent changes of prime lenses would be necessary. Sharpness is comparable to prime lenses at f/4. Weight is a problem for hiking trips. F/4 is generally sufficient.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged
  • Cons: Heavy
