The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens is a standard zoom lens with a focal length ranging from 24mm wide-angle to 105mm portrait-length telephoto. The EF 24-105mm incorporates Canon's highest standards of precision optics, combining outstanding image performance and ultimate operability with dust and moisture resistant construction. Canon's ring-type USM gives silent but quick autofocus (AF), along with full-time manual focus. Moreover, with dust- and moisture-resistant construction, this is a durable yet sophisticated lens that meets the demands of serious photographers. More
The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.
Lightweight and versatile
The EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM offers a 4.3x zoom ratio, from wide angle to medium telephoto. It is highly portable, weighing just 670g.
The f/4 maximum aperture of the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM is fixed throughout the lens' focal-length range, so shutter speeds will not change as the lens is zoomed.
The EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM features Canon's three-stop Image Stabilizer (IS), making it ideal for handheld work. IS permits the use of shutter speeds up to three stops slower than normal, with no perceptible increase in image blur from camera shake.
Super UD and aspherical lens elements
The lens incorporates a Super UD (ultra-low dispersion) glass element to eliminate secondary chromatic aberrations. Aspherical lens elements correct for spherical aberrations. The result is crisp, high-contrast, undistorted optical performance throughout the zoom range, without colour fringing at high-contrast edges.
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.
Smooth background blur
A virtually circular aperture diaphragm gives out of focus regions a softer, more uniform feel. Sharp foreground objects stand out against a smooth blurred background.
A petal shaped hood and soft case are included.

What an amazing lens!
from Warwickshire, UK
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Comments about Canon EF 24-105mm f4 L IS USM Lens:
A friend of mine recommended this lens to me and what a recommendation! It's an amazing lens, capable of achieving great shots from 24mm through to 105mm. I wasn't sure at first, given the focal width/length but I need not have worried. It's light, with all the 'L' characteristics, the price is so reasonable, and gives great results when used on both my EOS 5D MK III and 7D MK II. In short, I can't recommend it highly enough, especially if you're looking for a reasonably expansive zoom lens of the highest quality.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Canon 24-105 f4 L
This upgrade was taken after much thought as I am at present using a 60 D. For some wide landscapes and tight indoor shots we may want something wider. However the sheer clarity, and image quality, and contrast make me wish I had purchased the lens months ago. It's a beauty.
Great lens with good range for many uses
Easy to use brilliant upgrade from normal kit lens
Must have for any kit bag!!
This superb lens is excellent quality as you would expect of an L series.It is now the most commonly used lens in my bag and sits really well between the 17-40 f4 and the 70-200 f2.8.Great for portraits and landscapes and allows the switch between wide angle and mid telephoto very easily. Highly recommended!!

Excellent all-round lens
I've had my sight set on this lens for quite a while before getting it, having researched all possible reviews I could find. I haven't regretted this investment not even slightly. It is the perfect all-round, multi-purpose, standard-zoom lens, producing high quality, sharp images. Perfect for street fotography and portraits, giving consistent results. I'd certainly recommend this lens, if you are looking for a great all-round lens.

Bought as main lens for a 5D MkII, after much deliberation about suitability compared to an independent lens make. Lighter weight than an equivalent f2.8 option was the deciding factor in the end coupled to good pricing at the time of cashback.I had been hesitant, given the mixed reviews I had read, although I had been interested in this lens for a number of years. However, I have not been disappointed. Results with the 5D have been outstanding, landscapes smooth and pin sharp to infinity at 100% on screen, even when hand held, so the IS clearly works well and appears to be a cut above lenses of a lower price point with IS. Build quality is superb, the only drawbacks being the need to extend to zoom (unlike the internal zoom of say a 17-40), no zoom lock and weight and bulk. The zooming is a minor point and I am not aware of any other equivalent lens that does anything different, given how it needs to be constructed for this focal length and as the zoom is stiffer than on cheaper Canon lenses, zoom creep isn't as big an issue as it could be, although a zoom lock would be nice, given the independents seem to be able to achieve that consistently. At 650g it is heavy compared to a kit lens on a consumer SLR, but as a high spec lens it is actually light and is well balanced and handles well on a body of the size and weight of a 5D.You need to be aware that when moving into full-frame with this lens, it is really wide and you may need to upgrade your filters as a result, but that conversely it doesn't have the same depth of field as say a 17-40 used as a standard lens on crop, so you need to watch focusing, as at infinity there is a tendency for some softness in the immediate foreground unless care is taken. The AF is excellent, producing quite astonishing results on grab shots of birds some distance away.All in all an excellent purchase, which has produced outstanding results and is a good walkabout lens for general use.
