Re: Canon 24-105 f4 or 24 to 70 f2.8

For video you will love the IS as subject blur does not matter ( you will be shooting at 1/50sec most of the time if you shoot 24p). But the problem with both lens is they have a lot of focus breathing. So you will need some good primes. Preferably cinema lens.

If you buy the 5dmk3 as a kit with the 24-105 there is no better value package. Even if you will not keep the lens you will probably earn some money when selling it. Get the kit and with the money difference from the 24-70 f2.8 get some good primes. If video is your main focus look at the new Canon lens 24, 28 and 35mm f2.8 and with IS.
