Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM Lens Review
The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM lens is a newer version of the original Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens that promises improved image quality over the original. It features an all new optical design with 17 elements in 12 groups. Also among the improvements are 4 glass-molded (GMo) aspherical lenses on 5 surfaces to provide excellent resolving power. These improvements also help to increase peripheral brightness for better edge-to-edge performance and reduced distortion.
Another improvement is found in the Image stabilization system, which Canon says is good for up to 4-stops compared with 3-stops on the original design.
The original 24-105mm f/4L was a decent performer and a pretty good value – especially when purchased with a camera body at a tremendous discount. The new vesrion will likely continue that tradition, filling a niche for a great walk-around lens with great image quality and a versatile range.
