My STM lens is very sharp but when shooting backlit photos I noticed that the pics were terrible due to a huge lack of contrast. Is the L version 24-105mm f/4 better than the STM in regard to contrast in back lit photos. I compared to my RF 14-35mm f/4 which does a great job under the same conditions. I guess it should based on price.

I do understand that you generally get what you pay for but I am hesitant to even bring this lens on vacation based on my experience with it.

I appreciate any comments from people that own the L version.

thanks

David, perhaps you can post a sample or two of the photos that looked back in back lit situations?

I like my L version of the RF 24-105 but perhaps if you can share a pic with us for reference that may help.
