We have 30+ years of Canon zoom lenses that extend when zooming or focusing. The 70-200mm models are literally the only ones that do not. How come nobody calls the 24-105L or the 70-300L "dust suckers" or proclaim that they are fragile?

Good point.  They haven't had huge problems and people live with what dust they get in them.  I'll have to look at my RF 24-105.  Not that dust would bother my photos.  I accept in some lenses (all?) dust after years of use is nature of the beast.

It isn't that it is fragile.  Just lesser in that way and more expensive than the EF internal zoom versions.  A RF 24-105L is a dust sucker compared to the RF 24-105 all internal zoom version.  If there was a version.

If I had a choice of a EF 24-105L all internal zoom that was cheaper and just as optically good, I would have chose it.
