Ordered one May 21 for $899 but they didn't have a white box one, so they sent me a new Canon-box USA for the same price! I love Adorama. Maybe you'll get lucky too, but who knows since they knocked the price down another $70...but I can't complain!

It might not be across the board but the only time I ordered from Adorama using Topcash, they didn't even register the click-thru. Was an item over 1k which meant almost $60

I took a chance and looks like it went through fine. Got an email from topcashback that I have $49.74 cashback pending Adorama confirmation. So it definitely registered, just hope there are no issues between Adorama and Topcashback now. I know that Adorama is a great shop and fantastic customer service so I don't anticipate any problems.

Saw this on slickdeals, seems like a good deal! Figured I'd post since I could not find a thread on it...

So, this pretty much killed the used market for the time being :)

Fellas, is it worth updating my Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 lens to this? It looks like I will lose 7mm on the wide side and a f stop. I'm currently using a a canon 60D body. Thoughts??

I was considering this lens for my 7D, from what I have read on these forums the 24-105 is not an ideal crop sensor lens, the one you have is a great lens for a crop sensor

I used one for a while on a 40D, for me it was easier because I came from a Tamron 28-75 so 24 seemed wide enough. Lens works great but you will probably wish you had something wider. I then paired it with a 10-22 and it was a nice combo but still its an odd place to switch. Its what finally prompted me to go full frame.

I don't agree with that line of thinking, I find this lens ideal for me. The question is answered differently based on how we each shoot, making a general statement like this does not make much sense.

OP, when you shoot how often are you at the wide edge vs wishing you had a longer lens? I had a 17-50, but like always felt like it was not long enough.

I agree, I wish when people suggest something isn't a good lens for a crop sensor that they'd get into the habit of saying something to the effect of -- 'you may not like this on a crop sensor because...." As you say Duane, it's all dependant on how we shoot.

The best way to make a decision (in my opinion) is to review your photos (as many as you can) and check the most common focal length used. That's why I decided to get this one since most of my everyday captures where above 24mm range and even then I often crop them to get the subject closer. Exceptions are landscape shots for me but I have Sigma 10-20mm to cover that when I needed. Looking forward to getting my first "L" lens soon! :-)

My apologies for veering off topic here. I do shoot often in the 17mm range but there have been many situations where I wish I had more length... It prob sounds best to return/sell my tamron and go with this lens along with a 10-22mm lens. Yikes!

IMO the 24-105 is a better lens compared to the Tamron I had which was the 28-75. Better build, better autofocus and it seemed to produce nicer colors. Only you know if the range works for you.


Mine just shipped so I am very excited.
