What should I expect from 24-105?
Feb 12, 2013

Hello,

I just got a 6D kit with the 24-105.  Very amazing camera.  And I like the lens too.  I've been doing a lot of the usual tests - AMFA calibration and the flat surface tests.  My 24-105 is very sharp (especially in the center) and the corners seem very good too. I mostly tested at f4.

My only concern is that at 105mm the corners are kind-of softer than at wider focal lengths.  They seem consistent with one another and are not too bad.  At f 5.6 they are better.

I would appreciate any input from others who are very familiar with the 24-105.  What should be my expectations be with this lens? - especially relating to corner sharpness.  I want to make sure I have a "good" copy (I know this phrase is overused).  I'm coming from a 17-55 on a Rebel Xti. (wonderful lens).   Thank you!
