I don't think it's unexpected if you are comparing photos on flickr.

The 24-105 F4 is more of an all-rounder lens that will appeal to more people due to its greater range. You will therefore see many more "average" photos.

The 24-70 GM is a professional lens with a professional price. It stands to reason that photos taken with it and posted to flickr will have been taken by more skilled photographers.

You really need to do a side by side comparison to reach a solid conclusion.

Personally, I love my 24-105 F4, but I have a wide variety of excellent primes when the situation is warranted.


Yes, exactly what I thought. However, these two lenses do have a different "look" that is independent of the skills of the photographer. I think the 24-70 seems to have more pop. But that is just my opinion.
