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

I currently own a EOS 450d. I own a Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 Pro DX II Lens, canon standard 18-55mm f5.6 and 50mm f1.8. I have looked into EF24-105mm, though there are pretty good reviews, quite a number recommend EF24-70mm  instead. Please advise!

Unless you plan on moving to a full frame body soon, I'd say get the 17-55 f/2.8 instead.

If you are dead set on getting either the 24-105 or the 24-70II, all I can say is I think the 24-70II is a phenominal lens. I never felt that way about the 24-105. I thought it was more like an "adequate" lens.

Of course, it is possible to take good or bad pictures with either lens.

Just noticed how old this thread is. I actually already commented in the thread a month ago. I think it is safe to assume the OP has already decided what to do.
