Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS Zoom Lens – Featured User Review

Accessory Reviews Canon Featured Lenses User Reviews

I’ve been using the Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS zoom lens quite a bit lately so I was pleased when this user review by Howard Wu (below) showed up over the weekend. Honestly, I’ve had a love hate relationship with this lens. But lately I’ve been using it to shoot mountain biking and cyclocross racing with the Canon EOS 1D X and it’s nothing but love. I think it’s a near-perfect general outdoor photography lens for full-frame digital SLRs – especially now that Lightroom can automatically correct most of its optical flaws. Howard’s user review sums it up well and that’s why I’ve selected it to be a Featured User Review.

Unfortunately, the two copies I have had (I still have my second copy) produce severe vignetting at 24mm. Worse, the vignetting seems to be asymmetrical (one corner is much darker than the other corners)… (read more)
