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

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

My second L lens. Two down and one to go

By Robert
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-08

Got this with the same B&H order that delivered my full frame, so I was able to get a review of this lens using a full frame. I've attached a photo that has a 100%, 200% and 400% cropping. Photoshop was only used for the cropping. Pretty sharp in the corner but very sharp in the center area. Color is good here despite the dark clouds moving in. Photo was handheld and the IS worked nicely. I have Esential Tremmors in both hands so the IS is very important for me. This is my second L lends, the first one being the 16-35/4 IS. Third one will probably be the 70-200/2.8 IS. Those three with my full frame should make for some good photos on our next trip to the west USA. I'm happy and enjoying my new L lens.

This is probably my favorite lens. It has replaced another Canon lens that I own and have worn out(after nearly 800,000 shots)

Fantastic

Upgraded from 28-135mm f3:5-5:6 IS Canon Lens that has been to the factory repair service multiple times. Zoom is so rough it is questionable how long it will function. The NEW lens is silk smooth, image quality amazing! There is absolutely no question between the quality of the two lenses! I shoot many subjects of our amazing outdoor world - flowers, insects, scenic, birds, etc. - Very Pleased with the results this lens is providing me fitted to my Canon 7D. One regret - I hesitated way to long to upgrade to this lens!

Great lens

This is hands down the most versatile lens in my kit. I use it with a BMPCC 4K and a Viltrox EF-M2. It's image stabilization is so good I can use my BMPCC handheld with perfect smooth footage.

An Excellent Go-To Lens

This lens has become my primary lens by far. If I have any feelings of uncertainty about what lens to bring, or if I'm dealing with some limited space, this lens 9 times out of 10 makes the cut.
