yeah! love that lens! it's very versatile, but if you need more than f4, I wouldn't recommend it.

$780 is an excellent price for a brand new 24-105. I would go for it since you will easily be able to sell it if for some strange reason you don't like it.

It does work better on a FF camera, but at that price why not give it a try. In the B&S section they regularly go for used for $800-850. If you posted it at $780, it would go fast.

I have the 24-104/4 and it works great with the 7D.

That is until I can afford the 17-55/2.8

But even then I might keep the 24-104 around until I move up to FF.

I am watching the prices and on eBay, they are running just over 800 average, 780 for a new one is a great price, particularly since you know the history, no risk.

24-105 is great on FF or crop. Why's your buddy getting rid of it?

that's a really good deal. If it's your buddy selling it to you then ask to borrow it for a few days test it out and see if your happy with a f4 lens then buy it. But either way even if you buy it and don't like it you probably can sell it for more then you brought it for

Doit! :) Great price, and I think it works terrifically on the 7D...I'd imagine you could turn it around for the same price, easily, if you decide you aren't "feeling" it.
