Okay, I will go further in details. The 24-105mm is not the razor sharp lens. You can see A LOT of color fringing and chromatic aberration. The barrel distortion is very sad. Just like the 18-55mm kit lens. I guess it is a little sharper than non L lens. I do not own this lens.

If you look at the 55-250mm STM, there is almost no color fringing and very few chromatic aberration. There is almost no visible barrel distortion. The 55-250 STM is cheap, but it is like a mini L lens. And the 70-200mm f4 non IS is very sharp indeed.

I just want to have some feedback from you guys about this lens. I am planning to to buy the Sigma 24-105mm Art.

The 24-105 is cheap now on ebay. The MSRP is $1149. On ebay, it is $660. WOW. What a price drop. The sigma 24-105 is a bit more expensive. ($820 on ebay) More metal on the lens than the Canon. Idk if it is weather sealed but, it is FANTASTIC!
