Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM Overview

  • 1Description

An advanced one-lens solution, the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM is a Canon L-series zoom covering wide-angle to short-telephoto focal lengths and featuring a constant f/4 maximum aperture. The version II of this popular lens sports a redeveloped optical design, which includes four aspherical elements to significantly reduce distortion and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range for great sharpness and accurate subject rendering. Individual elements feature an Air Sphere Coating, too, to suppress flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy in harsh lighting conditions.

Complementing the refined optics, this 24-105mm f/4 also sports a ring-type USM and internal focusing mechanism to enable quick, quiet, and accurate autofocus performance, as well as full-time manual focus override. A four-stop-effective Image Stabilizer is also used to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Additionally, this lens is weather-sealed and has a protective fluorine coating on the exposed elements for use in trying environmental conditions.

Standard wide-angle to telephoto zoom lens is designed for use with full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 38.4-168mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/4 maximum aperture maintains consistent illumination throughout the zoom range.
Four glass-molded aspherical elements, including one large-diameter double-sided glass-molded lens, help to minimize distortions and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to maintain edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination.
An Air Sphere Coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce backlit flaring and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity in strong lighting conditions.
An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds.
A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with an internal focusing design, optimized focusing algorithms, and a high-speed CPU, is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
Rounded ten-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens has a weather-resistant design that protects against dust and moisture to enable its use in inclement conditions. Additionally, fluorine coatings have also been applied to the front and rear lens elements for further protection against fingerprints and smudging.

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM Reviews

EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 85.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from MK I was good, MK II is fantastic!! I've used the 24-105 Mk I and it was a fine lens. After trying the Mk II, I was really impressed. I feel like the minority here, but I don't see the fascination of the 24-70 II. I have both lenses and the IS plus extra range is a huge benefit. I figured the image quality of the 24-70 would justify the cost with with the loss of IS/range, but to my eyes I don't notice a difference. Maybe a little after zooming in to 100% and viewing side-by-side, but even then it's close. I know you can pick up the Mk I cheap, but I would encourage anyone to just go for the new Mk II. This lens is a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Walk Around in Canon Arsenal Pro photographer in Atlanta...used the 2.8 24-70 until a recent trip to Rome where the intention was to use only one lens (landscapes, building, museums, artwork, etc.) with all the walking..70mm is slightly too short, so bought and used the 24-105. Worked perfectly. No low light problems. Results comparable to the 2.8. Very flexible. I'm pleased and w probably replace the 24-70 with the new one as the walk around lens in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all purpose lens. I have this lens on my 5DM4 and it's a good all purpose walk-around lens. I do have the older version on my 5DM3. And compared to the older version, it's just a tad better in image quality and it seems to be a little bigger and a bit heaver too. Like all other L lenses, build quality is very good; I like the new zoom locking feature. However, I wish Canon would have improved the image quality a little more to match the 24-70mm F2.8L II lens but then again this lens is a lot less money. All-in-all, it's worth the extra $$ for this upgrade over the older lens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All around champ. This is definitely the first L lens you should buy if you are looking to upgrade into the world of the red ring. It's not the fastest lens at f4, however the sharpness when stopped at 5.6 and above is astounding. And with a 24 to 105 focal length range covered, the lens is one of the most versatile L lenses available. Anyone who says a kit 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 can outperform this lens needs to seriously re-think photography as a hobby.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fine lens, but I chose not to keep it. I've been anticipating the release of this lens after being greatly impressed by the qualitative improvement of Canon lenses over the past few years. I gaspedliterallywhen I made test photos with the 100-400mm MkII zoom, and the 16-35mm f/4 IS lenses last year. I expected similarly to be impressed with the new 24-105 MkII zoom as a replacement for the original version of the lens. I want to be clear that the new lens is very good but after extensive side-by-side testing of the old and new lenses, I decided to stick with my old 24-105mm Canon zoom. The new lens is not the game changer I had hoped for. That said, I also returned the 5DMkIV after finding that the sensor quality was not a dramatic improvement over either the 5DMkIII or 6D. I worship at the altar of quality and I'm happy to pay for it, but much of my older Canon gear continues to serve me well enough. Kudos to B&H for their liberal return policy, which I honor and respect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy to have the extra reach again! I owned the previous version of this lens and was reasonably happy with it. I sold it and bought the 24-70 f2.8 II for studio work on a camera stand. When I traveled though, I came to miss the extra reach of the 24-105 and the IS too. When the new model came out I bought it for travel. I do think it is sharper and causes fewer distortions but this is my feeling after using it for a month and not the result of some lab testing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from B&H is the place for lenses I have used the Canon 24-105mm lens for years. When the newer model came out, I preordered at B&H, and it arrived about two weeks ago. Slightly longer and slightly heavier than the older model, it is worth the upgrade. As a stock photographer, my work has to be technically perfect, and the Canon 24-105mm, II paired with the Canon 5D Mark IV are fantastic to work with. Together, they produce excellent results. The reviewers of my images love the results too. Very clear, even at long range, and very fast focus. I am pleased, and sold my older lens on eBay. Keep on upgrading!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Lens than I Anticipated I own the original version of this lens and always enjoyed using it but was rarely satisfied with the image quality. I purchased the new and improved model prior to going on a Caribbean cruise that included stops in Cuba. Since I was going to do a lot of street photography and Ive also developed mature hands that have some trouble holding a camera steady, I thought the new version with an extra stop of IS would be helpful. Helpful is an understatement. The extra stop of IS was a great plus and my images came back sharper than with the original lens. Even my low light images taken at the Tropicana were better than I anticipated. This is now my official go-to lens. Perfect range for street, portraits and low light photography. I took three lenses on the cruise and this is the only one I used.

The Mark 1 version of this lens did not allow the C100 Mark 2's face detection AF feature. Will this one?
Asked by: Ken L.
This version with the image stabilizer in on the Canon Dual Pixel Auto Focus lens compatibility list. In other words, yes this will work.

question

Wrong lens hood listed as in the box?
Asked by: Jeanette D.
Canon USA's website indicates under the Supplies & Accessories tab on their website (and indicated on pages ENG-12 and ENG-14 of the lens' instruction manual) that the Canon Lens Hood EW-83M is indeed the correct lens hood for use with the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM lens. As such, the information listed on our website is correct.http://bit.ly/2hGo4cGhttp://bit.ly/2hxGw4k

question

Will this lens be a true f4 throughout as it's well known that the mk1 version loses light when zoomed?
Asked by: Marc W.
The original 24-104 is a true f/4 zoom. It loses a small bit as it zooms (most zooms do) but it has never been an issue for me. Quite good at all lengths and the new version should be even better

question

Is this lens compatible with a LANC controller?
Asked by: Greg B.
It depends not on the lens but whether the camera takes a LANC because this lens cannot take the LANC directly. Even then, the only thing possible would be focus, for no power zoom is possible with this lens through a LANC controlled camera.
