I considered that lens, but went with the f/4-5.6 L instead. I figured it this way: the 24-105 isn’t exactly a tiny lens, nor is the f/4-5.6 DO. The two together would still amount to a cumbersome load to carry around, so getting the somewhat bigger f/4-5.6L wouldn’t make a hell of a lot of difference. At least the L version is tried-and-true. And indeed, it works very well.

I will say this, though: its AF isn’t lightning fast the way the 24-105 is, but I suppose this is to be expected.
