Re: Advise on EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM and EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM

Both are excellent lenses. You'll find equal numbers of recommendations on both lenses, I'm afraid

I have the 24-70/2.8 II, and it's probably the sharpest standard zoom available. OTOH, at half the price, 24-105L is also a good lens. It's slightly less sharp (more noticeable in the corners), has more pronounced barrel distortion at 24mm - but extends to 105mm. For travel, 24-105 L is more suitable. If your budget allows and want the best IQ in a zoom lens, get the 24-70 II.

Either will serve you well - it's down to your photographic skill in the end
