Did you regret buying one? Would Canon 17-55 close price range would be more effective lens for crop?

No. I was happy with it on my 350D and 40D and am happy with it now on a 5Dmk2.

I love to have this 24-105 lens. Even though it's f4, I usually use flash indoors :) Primes for no flash situations.

Once you have a UWA, 24-Xx are good lens to buy

Absolutely no regrets. It is the widest lens, including the effect of a 1.6x crop factor, owned in nearly four decades of using an SLR camera. I use a flash when indoors.

I loved it on my 50D and even more so on my 5D II


1Dx - 5DIII - 40D - Canon 24-70LII, 100L macro, 135L, 16-35L, 70-200 f4 and 100-400L lenses

Nope. Moved from a 28-75 Tamron, so knew the range it could cover.

Plus, have the 12-24 if I really need wide angle...

No regrets at all. A great lens. I pair mine up with a 10-22.

Same here. It goes well with 10-22.
10-22 and 17-55 overlaps too much.


learning hard!

the experience of other people only helps if they shoot what you do and have similar alternatives. Ask yourself what range you shoot in. When you say "more effective," I'd ask, "more effective for what?" I don't have that lens, but I do have a Tamron 28-75, because I find that for a lot of my work, I want short telephoto more than wide angle. E.g., I use that lens more than any other when shooting candids indoors. However, while I don't generally want to go wider indoors, I certainly do outdoors, so I have a somewhat duplicative EF-S 15-85 for that purpose.

So if you shoot like me, which you may not, I would say that it might be a good lens if you don't intend to use it for landscapes and have something else that will go wider.

Hi thanks for the replies. I shoot mostly indoors. I would like to hear your thoughts 'cause I plan on buying the Canon 24-105. I already have the Tokina UWA. I just really wanted to try this lens, even @f4 might not fast enough but I usually use flash indoors. For my walkaround, travel lens with the extra reach it gets me to this interest. Is color contrast, sharpness better than my currently using (For sale now) Tamron 17-50 non vc?

Answering your question : No ! This was my best deal. 40D + 24-105. It's remarquably good on 5D2 but aps + this Lens is all what i needed. Useable 35mm wide, 168mm tele, f4, IS... What else ?
