Canon 24-105mm f/4.0 overview

  • 1Description

If you could only have one lens, many photographers would pick the upgraded EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM Lens from Canon due to its exceptionally versatile zoom range from wide-angle to short telephoto, a constant f/4 aperture, and an outstanding build quality befitting an L-series lens. This version II of the popular lens makes improvements to image quality through the use of a new optical design with four glass-molded aspherical elements, which helps to limit vignetting in your images. Also, it uses an Air Sphere Coating to reduce ghosting and flaring.

A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor AF system provides fast and accurate autofocus while built-in optical image stabilization can help compensate for about 4 stops of shutter speed, minimizing the effects of camera shake. This lens also offers a zoom lock switch to prevent lens creep when not actively in use as well as an internal focus system. Full-time manual focus override is available for making adjustments regardless of the AF mode. Additionally, it has a rounded 10-blade aperture diaphragm for smooth out of focus elements.

As with all L-series lenses, this optic has a dust- and water-resistant construction thanks to numerous seals that prevent intrusion when working in inclement weather. It also uses a fluorine coating on the exposed front and rear elements to help prevent smudges and to make cleaning easier.

Offering a versatile zoom range of 24-105mm, this L-series lens is a staple of many shooters' kits. This updated version offers improved image quality, with a notable enhancement in peripheral brightness.
Designed for use with full-frame DSLRs, this optic is compatible with APS-C format cameras as well where it will provide a 38.4-168mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent performance and light transmission throughout the zoom range.
Four glass-molded aspherical elements, including one large-diameter double-sided glass-molded lens, help to minimize distortions throughout the zoom range in order to maintain edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination.
An Air Sphere Coating (ASC) has been applied to lens elements to reduce backlit flaring and ghosting for maintained light transmission and high contrast in strong lighting conditions.
A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with an internal focusing system, high-speed CPU, and optimized AF algorithms, are employed to deliver fast, precise, and near-silent autofocus performance.
Optical image stabilization minimizes the effects of camera shake by compensating for up to 4 stops of shutter speed.
Full-time manual focus operation is available for fine-tuning of your focus position when working in the AF mode.
Zoom lock prevents lens creep when not in use.
A weather-resistant design protects the lens from 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.
Ten rounded diaphragm blades contribute to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

Canon 24-105mm f/4.0 reviews

EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM Lens is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 64.
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 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 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 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 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 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 This lens is phenomenal! I love this lens. I combine it with the 5D Mark IV and it is great. As well as the performance, I like the features. A lock which prevents lens movement if required, and a manual focus override anytime without requiring turning off auto focus. The f/4 throughput the zoom is great in low light. The attached image of my dog was just an impromptu shot on the first time I tried the lens. The ISO was up around 12,800 at f/4 and 1/60. I was really surprised at the quality because it really was just a test shot. Just buy it, you will not be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice improvement nice improvement from the first version of this lens, seems faster focusing and much better gyro, did notice that the edge to edge sharpness at 24mm has been improved.
