Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS

Available Today

Canon’s wide range image stabilized midrange zoom is a favorite ‘walkaround’ and vacation lens. It’s very sharp (even wide open), and the image stabilization system allows it to be handheld even at slow shutter speeds. Although not quite as fast as the Canon 24-70mm, the increased focal length, image stabilization, and lighter weight make it a better choice for many shooters than the venerable 24-70. It does exhibit some barrel and pincushion distortion at extreme range on full frame cameras.

I’m frequently asked “Canon 24-105 f/4L IS, Canon 24-70mm f/2.8, or Canon 24-70 f/4 IS ?”

There isn’t a right answer; they’re all great. The advantages of the Canon 24-105 f/4L IS are smaller size, greater range, image stabilization, and lower cost. The Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 has less distortion and wider apertures. The 24-70 f/4 IS has less distortion and the very nice macro feature.

My choice is the 24-70 f/2.8 for portraits and architectural shooting and the 24-105 for walking around or taking on vacation, but that’s just me. If the macro feature is useful to you, the 24-70 f/4 IS may be a better choice.
