Canon 100 2.8L vs 24-105L comparison
Dec 16, 2013


I happen to have both lenses and was wondering about the output of both at F/4. The main reason is finding the zoom a tad soft.

The test is pretty practical, handheld with the same ISO, aperture and shutter speed.

I then went to dxo to check the comparison and the zoom has T5 light transmission which would explain why is darker. But also the colours are different.

I like the macro lens much more.. now the question is, is my zoom copy ok or do I need to fiddle with the micro adjustment?

24-105 @f/4

100 Macro @f/4

100 Macro @f/2.8
