I'm trying to decide between the 24-70 f/4 L IS and the 24-105 f/4 L IS. I'm leaning towards the former, mainly because of the physical size and weight. There are times when I hand my 7D to my wife for some photos and she always complains about it when I have my 70-300 L IS lens attached. I have a 17-40 f/4 L also. However, I'm needing something in the middle - both of those aforementioned lenses fit the bill. But - I'm seeing that the 24-70 has a "Hybrid IS". I've not heard of that before...

Hi, I have a 550D with 24-105 f/4 IS. I am wanting to upgrade my body to a 6d. I previously bought the lens used but at very good condition. However, I still have some concerns as I do not know if this lens has been used properly etc. no track records. Should I fork up extra money to get the 6d with the 24-105 kit and sell my existing one or should I stick to it and just buy a new body? thanks

Hi all I've been having an issue with my 24-105 on my 5D Mark III. I found that occasionally the image in the frame would jump around and I would be able to feel a vibration in the camera and hear a noise coming from the lens. I figured it must be an IS problem. I know the IS system will sometimes jump a little, but I thought it was jumping excessively so I took it back to the retailer who sent it to Canon for repair. I just got it back today with a sheet saying the "Image Stabiliser...

I just bought a new 24-105 and used it in australia where it appears to have gotten sand in it. Lens worked fine for 6 months then stopped making electronic contact with camera - will take photo but shows no metrics. Canon is saying there is sand in the lens and wants to charge a fortune to fix it - are there any other fixes to this? Contact points look clean....

I've got a 16-35mm F4 L that I LOVE, and I use it for almost all uses except for informal social events (BBQs, family events, portraits). I have my trusty 50mm 1.8 II that I'm using for this purpose now, but I'd like to get a zoom with more range (and better AF). I've never had a tele zoom before; is 70mm too long for general purpose indoor social events? If any of you use one of the Canon 70-200mm L variants, do you find yourself trying to back up through a wall very often when indoors? Or...

Hello, I'm really a newbie and I would like to hear some easy explanation about this. I have a Canon 24-105 mm lens and according to this (http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/7/0300003587/02/ef24-105f4lisusm-im3-eng.pdf) maximum magnification is 0.23x. It is possible that this number is calculated only by focal length as 24 divide by 105?

Our school archives is looking to purchase a DSLR to serve two purposes: First, we would use it to digitize (i.e. photograph) a collection of large scrapbooks by mounting the camera above them on a camera stand, then using remote capture to view the shot on a monitor and take the picture. The largest scrapbooks are about 28"x22" and we would try to supplement the ambient light in the room with some work lights on stands. Second, we would use it to film speakers in two different contexts --...

I recently acquired the 16-35mm F4, and I'm liking it more and more. I primarily shoot landscape, but also enjoy macro and covering family events. My second lens is a nifty-fifty. I'm in the market for a third lens, under US$1k used, but I don't have a specific need as of yet (if I don't buy something now, the money will vanish ;-) ). To me, a midrange zoom seems an obvious choice (24-105 f4, perhaps), but I know most people tend to use the extremes of a zoom the most, and optically others...

I've been shooting my 1DS MkII with a 50mm/1.8 II for a while now; I'm finally ready to add a lens or two to my collection, and have a max budget of ~$1300 to spend. I'm no pro, but printmaking was my minor in college, and b&w landscape photography has been a serious (if intermittent) hobby in the last 15 or so years. My preferred focal range is between 20-28mm (full frame). Whenever I've had a walk around zoom with other systems, the majority of shots over the years have fallen in this...
