wow, thread from the dead.

How many new members have joined since this thread was started? Do you know anyone that has a rational mind that would read all the separate threads?

Besides, it's fun to vote and see how opinions change over a long period of time.

Now, I'm going to check my old Eveready "C" cell that says "use before October 1943" to see if still has a charge!!! And yes, I do have that battery! Might be useful for something some day!

Some things NEVER die!

24-105, because it is a better walk-around for me... The IS is nice, as is the extended range. Mine is sharp as a tack throughout the range. Love it!

Guess I'm the 5th guy with the 28-70, I like the speed of f/2.8. I own a 70-200 f/2.8, so the reach between 70 and 105 is a moot point. This is my most oft used lens. Oh yeah, mine is ANCIENT. Date code shows manufacture in '95.


Just the humble musings of a beginner...

I've had both... I ended up keeping the 24-70 ... that said.. it wasn't a smooth road to get there... I bought a 24-105 first... had it for about a year, and loved it as my main walkaround lens the entire time... however, I started to do some different shooting and I really needed a faster zoom in my lineup... so, I rented a 24-70 for a while... after the first few days, I hated it... I knew I made a mistake, and I wanted my 24-105 back.... I couldn't get consistently in focus shots... it was just horrible... but after looking through the lens sample archive... I knew this wasn't normal for this lens... so.. throwing caution to the wind, I got on B&H and bought a brand new one.... I got it the next day, and it was everything I expected the rental to be... the rental just happened to be a bad copy... I can't blame the rental place, because when it came to me, the lens was brand new.... it didn't even have any marks on the hood yet... so they didn't know....

Now that I have a proper 24-70.... I love it... I still miss the IS of the 24-105 sometimes... but the f/2.8 makes up for it most of the time... the 24-70 provides great bokeh in comparison to the 24-105... ... I love the dang thing.

Which one do you think would be better for low light shots, for instance in a wedding? Is the 2.8 aperture more important or IS?

I got the 24-105mm since i have a 50 1.4 prime for dark situations. The 24-105 gives nice control and the IS is also a big plus in filming.
And oh, it's cheaper, price is always a factor with everything.

Ah ah, this thread is back in business again !

I just own 24-105 and prefer IS then 2.8. Because for 2.8, I have primes and sincerely, do you really think 2.8 is enough for you ?!

+1 for 24-105mm + fast primes. I do like to use fast shutter speeds the majority of the time but IS sure has its uses also.

The poll needs an option for both.
