The only reason I could think of not to recommend it is if you need ultra sharpness for huge prints... or if you need good sharpness across the frame wide open.... this lens is nice and sharp in the center at all focal lengths... but from 70mm to 120mm at f/4, the outer areas (even mid way to the edge on Fx) drop off a good deal in sharpness (more than the Canon 24-105mm in my experience)

Here is an example.... not much of a difference, but if you need the highest quality it's there...
