Not one of their best videos but the conclusions match perfectly to my findings between the two. 24-70 if you lean more towards portraits and need the extra stop, 24-105 if you lean more towards the photojournalist side and need IS. Both are great lenses.

Well, he did say that the 24-105 is sharper than the 24-70 and the 24-70 has 2.8, but that was about it. I do enjoy watching him though!

I want to say the reason this review was a bit less bland and there wasnt much of a comparison is that it seemed the rain came from nowhere on him and he really couldnt do much of a comparison (Because Kai, unlike me, and perhaps because the stuff all belongs to Digital Rev doesnt want to risk getting anything fried by water, Also because of Hong Kong being where it is theres probably a lot of salt in the rain which means the rain is going to be very bad for whatever it gets in)

They might have been trying their best to do what they could under the circumstances, not wanting to come up short this week for a video...

Though as a counter arguement i would like to say i found his take on the situation really honest, There really isnt much to choose between them in terms of optics, It comes down to more "Do you need f/2.8? No? 24-105, yes? 24-70" This actually sums up my feelings on the 24-105 vs 24-70 debate, Both really are fantastic lenses and both are really great and hard to choose between, it really does come down to if you need f/2.8 or not..

Was quite surprised at the Canon and the Nikon, I expected the Nikon to do a lot better...And also am i crazy i thought the Canon's colors were more saturated...

Also dropping the 24-105 at the end made me laugh, The lens is probubly fine though...Mine survived a drop at least (The EOS-3 it was attached to however, Did not)

exactly how i felt. he said it himself its comparing "limes to oranges." they aren't comparing 2 lenses with the same focal range or the same fixed aperture. i find it weird they even bothered to do a video.

I personally see DigitalRev as the Top Gear of the photography world. Hopefully it'll be come that big!

His lack of strap usage on the camera body always makes me nervous. I always wrap the neck strap around my right hand when its off my neck.

And I like his reviews even if there isn't that much substance at times. They're funny and entertaining.

if it makes you nervous have u ever watched their worlds very first real L Lens cup video?

serious love that channel ive been watching their vids like 4 months now, i really love his humor.:D

Usually I like their reviews, this one kind of sucked. I don't I learnt anything useful from it!

I like their reviews, but I hardly ever learn anything useful from them. They're more for entertainment, IMO.

DRev videos are pretty entertaining regardless of the actual amount of information they actually contain.. My favorites are the "Pro photographer with cheap Camera Challenge" series.
