My gf just bought a Canon 70d and is interested in making video for blogs. Wanted to get everyone opinion on which lens to get for videography. The 24-105L F4 IS or the 24-70L F4 IS? The main concern is video quality and fast auto focusing.

Thanks!

I think you mean the 24-105 F4L IS.

Both are very similar. I believe the 24-70 has less distortion, but the 24-105 has more reach. Personally I would choose reach. The IS and AF are basically the same, with the 24-70 being a bit more modern. Can't go wrong really.

Keeping in mind that you are on a crop camera with the dual-pixel AF feature, you would be better off looking for STM lenses, which support super smooth, silent and fast AF in video.

The EF-S 18-135 STM would probably be better than either of those options for video. Also, btw, it's a 24-105mm -- not 24-125mm.

I use the cheap-o STM lenses for video: 10-18mm, 18-55mm, 55-250mm and 40mm. Lighting and audio are much more significant factors in making a great video. Get some LED video lights and a great microphone.

One other really big plus for STM lenses is that the image stabilizer is silent, unlike the two L lenses you mentioned in the first post.

Thanks everyone for their input! I'm thinking of getting her the 10-18 STM. The 18-35 was a possibility but she'll be blog in her room so she won't need the close ups and could benefit from the wider 10-17 focal length.

Too wide might not be very flattering when she videos her face in a smaller space.

In her room she'll most likelt appreciate the wide aperture of the 18-35.

I think he made a typo and was talking about the 18-135 STM. But, yeah, the Sigma 18-35 1.8 would be fantastic for that.
