New standard zoom lens for 5d MkII
Jun 9, 2011

I use mostly EF 2.8/24, 1.4/50 and 4/70-200L. Among other EF lenses I have 3.5-4.5/24-85, which I would like to upgrade with EF 4/24-105.
Since I haven't tested this lens I would like to ask several questions.

1) How does 24-105 compare with my 2.8/24 and 24-85 lenses? Is it significant upgrade over my lenses?
2) Some lenses are labeled as "White box" What does it mean?
