Is Canon 24-105 F4 IS L my only choice?
Jun 29, 2011

I am looking for a good lens to shoot wider angles. I like Canon L lens due to their weather sealing and quality. Since my 7D is weather sealed it only makes sense for me to make sure I buy a weather sealed lens, so I don't have to worry about light rain etc when I go out to shoot.

Now, I would also like IS as it lets me keep my shutter speeds down.

After searching all the lens I am finding 24-105 F4 L as the only choice I have and that too 24 isn't exactly the widest. I mean I would have been much happier with a 17-70 F4 L IS as I don't care about that little extra reach as much as I like the widest but it's like I have no option in that range with IS.

Am I missing any lens, I don't care if it is discontinued, please point me to any lens that might fit the bill for me.
