Time to pick up 24-105 F/4L IS or not?
Dec 20, 2006

Firstly, I would like to thank for many people's suggestions when I decide which lens I should buy for my 30D. Now I used the L combo -- 17-40 F4L and 70-200 F4L for a few months and very happy for my final decision.

My lens are mainly for travel and the problem is as expected -- in low light. I always travel somewhere. But in low light condition, such as indoor, at night... I found I have to bump up the ISO to 1600 and F4 is only my choice (to get shutter speed 1/60 or 1/100). Even though, sometimes I still cannot get good exposure or have noisy picture or shoallow DOF. I have 50 1.8 which does better, but it is still not versatile to use when I walk around.

I tend to not use tripod/monopod or even flash when I walkround somewhere because it will add more weight. I am just wondering 24-105 F4L IS will give me better chance to get more picture at night or in low light condition. I would also like to get some suggestions for the settings in low light.

Thank you very much for your suggestions!!
