Everyone loves the 24-105mm f/4L IS version I lens.At least it seems that way.This lens has been a significant part of a very high number of amateur, enthusiast & professional kits.It is a great general purpose lens và it was an especially great value when purchased in various full frame DSLR kits.Everyone needs a general purpose lens và since these lenses tend to lớn be the most-used in the kit, there is an emphasis on having a high quality version of this most important lens.And, a version II lens is always better, right?Bettering an already popular lens is a simple recipe for success & the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM Lens has both the lineage and the specs required to make it Canon"s best general purpose lens ever.

For many years, the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens was my most-used lens andmy primary full-frame walk-around/general purpose lens (and it still may be my most-ever-used lens).Then came the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens.This lens, featuring some advantages including an incredible maximum magnification capability, made the decision process a tough one.Though I would not have been surprised khổng lồ see the original 24-105L discontinued after the 24-70 f/4L IS hit the streets, it was not và has remained very popular.I went back & forth between these two lenses and had both in my kit at the same time for years.

What does a new, updated 24-105 f/4L IS lens mean lớn Canon"s lens lineup?Certain is that the ideal Canon general purpose/walk-around lens decision process remains at least somewhat complicated.Also certain is that another great choice for this lens category is now available.

I don"t recall Canon updating a lens mã sản phẩm without improving it và this one indeed has improvements.The first 24-105 f/4L IS was great & with over a decade of technological advancements available, greater was assured with the II.How much greater is the biggest question and many of us are now asking: "Is the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM Lens now Canon’s best general purpose/walk-around lens ever?"Read on my friend.


Focal Length Range

To be my most-ever-used lens means that the focal length range (FLR) must be useful for the scenarios I most frequently encounter.Specifically, such a lens will cover what I consider to lớn be the heart of the general purpose focal length range, or about 28-70mm for a full frame camera.The 24-105mm range is of course a solid superset of this range.The extra 4mm this lens provides on the wide end is especially valuable for landscape photography & for capturing images in tight places.The extra 35mm on the long kết thúc is useful for a wide range of subjects, but especially for portraiture including tightly framed portraits (such as headshots).

While few would consider this to lớn be a "super zoom" lens, the 24-105mm range is the longest general purpose full frame focal length range that I have found lớn deliver the high-end, pro-grade image unique I am looking for(among the currently available lenses).Choosing a longer focal length range means giving up something I have not been willing to give up.More specifically, image quality is often sacrificed (especially the always-important image sharpness aspect) & size/weight typically go up rapidly.

Still, the 4x, 24-105mm zoom range packs a host of wildly-popular individual focal lengths into a single lens, including the well-represented-by-primes 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm & 100/105mm focal lengths.

This FLR is especially ideal for landscape photography.It is not difficult lớn create compelling landscape compositions using the 24mm perspective, while still providing emphasis on a foreground subject against an in-focus background with the viewerfeeling a sense of presence in the scene.At the other over of the range, 105mm works great for modestly-compressed landscapes featuring distant subjects, such as mountains, being better emphasized.I utilize all of the focal lengths in between when photographing landscapes is my primary objective.

With a great portion of the ideal portrait FLR covered, this lens is ready khổng lồ capture the world"s most important subjects.That of course references people và the things that people are photographed & filmed doing:weddings, parties, events, documentaries, interviews, lifestyle, fashion, portraiture, sports, candids captured around the house và much more.The wide end works great for environmental-type portraits, the long over is well-suited for relatively tight headshot-type portraits and the balance of portrait needs,including group photos are covered by the focal lengths in between.

This lens is a great choice for photojournalistic needs, it is ready khổng lồ capture a wide range of sản phẩm images và it works great for general commercial and studio photography.

Do you travel?If so, this lens has your name on it.It is well suited for capturing much of what you will find while sightseeing và it will not be a burden to lớn take with you.That includes interior & exterior architecture, cities, countrysides, etc.

As always, an APS-C format DSLR utilizes a smaller image circle.This means that these cameras frame a scene more tightly, with 1.6x being the multiplier (FOVCF)used to determine the full frame angle of view equivalent.Multiplying 24-105mm by 1.6x yields 38.4-168mm, the full frame 35mm format camera angle of view equivalent for this lens used on an APS-C body.

The uses for this angle of view are similar to the 24-105mm range (there is a lot of overlap), but for my taste, the lens shifts from landscapes toward portraits in its overall usefulness profile when APS-C-mounted.

I mentioned "overlap" in a slightly different context, but I think this word warrants a short discussion in another sense.While the 24-105mm focal length range appears lớn match up perfectly between the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens (or similar) and theCanon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens (and those three lenses would make a great kit), the also-popularCanon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens (or similar) andCanon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens (or similar) kits will have a lot of redundant focal lengths in them.Let me assure you that focal length overlap is not bad to have.Having the focal lengths you need in a lens that is mounted at any given moment is often crucial for maximizing image making opportunities.Photos will sometimes be missed if a lens change is required to lớn capture them.

I always find it helpful to view a comparison sample of the focal length range.All 24-105mm lenses provide the same (or at least close to lớn the same) range of angle of views, so here I"m borrowing a comparison sample I like from theCanon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens review(captured with a full frame Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR camera.
