One of the best wide angle lenses ever made. This lens is almost as sharp as a prime lens throughout it's zoom range.
The mark 2, released in 2012, includes a number of nice tweaks and improvements on the mark 1, further improving the optical quality.
For use on cameras such as the Canon C300 and Canon 5D Mk II the shots produced are outstanding.
The 24-105 Canon F4 IS lens is a fantastic standard zoom lens. It is wide enough for most cicumstances, and gives a much longer reach than the very well respected 24-70.
The addition of image stabilisation gives many advantasges, including a huge rise in image quality from DSLR, such as the Canon 5D Mk II and Canon 7D.
Phillip Bloom has stated this is one of his favourite lenses. It is lighter and shorter than the 24-70, and on a crop factor lens has a similar image quality.
Even though F4 is slower than a standard F2.8, the background blur achievable at 105mm at F4 is almost the same as 70mm at F2.8. The low light performance of modern cameras such as the C300 is so good that F2.8 is often unnecessary and in many circumstances gives you an unusable depth of field.
We use this lens and the 24-70 and have found strengths and weaknesses to both lenses.
Canon's upgraded model on the popular Canon 5D Mk2. The Mk3 has better sensor and much more versatility and higher recording formats. In fact, it is a completely new camera that has either improvements or complete replacements to all its functions. One of the biggest improvements in the field is that you can now use SD cards as well as compact flash, the ISO range has been increased to an impressive 102800 and the LCD screen has grown from 3" to 3.2".
There are so many small improvements that if we were to list them all here it would make a very long a boring list. All we'll add is that this is a great little camera that produces stunning images.
