IQ is great for me and no lens creep either.

Until very recently the 70-200F4 IS was the sharpest zoom lens canon made, only surpassed now by the MKII 2.8 version of the same lens. So the 24-105 is good, but perhaps still a notch below either of those lenses. If you want to swim in that class your probably need primes.

Sharpness is only one criteria to use, certainly a worthy one, but not the only none the less.

Have you thought about a prime? You could go 50 f1.4 and 85 f1.8 and have awesome DOF, sharpness and much more.

there's a site where you can compare two lenses and change all sorts of parameters - while it is only a test of a chart (and there are many arguments how a test chart isn't as good t test lenses as "real life", it does give a basis. If i remember correctly, the chart of the 24-105 to me was more impressive of the overlap areas of the 17-55 than vice versa - though of course, as many will point out, the 24-105 doesn't do 17-23 or f2.8 and the 17-55 doesn't do 56-105.... :)

Taking pics of live people at 1/6 and 1/10 is suicide! :p

The OP wants to take shots of his child. If his is anything like mine, they don't sit still for a second. I use shutter speeds similar to what I use for wildlife.

Most of the pics below 24mm were my wifes doing, and thus the picture quality dives. I like the compression of stepping back and getting 50mm to 85mm shots, but I guess the compression is not gunna be their on the 24-105 at those field of views.

The "compression" is caused by you stepping back; it is just the operation of perspective. Whether you then use 50 mm or 85 mm or whatever to frame the shot, the exact lens used will make no difference to it at all.

I would not want this, as it does not provide for the action shots that I wanted from my kids. Otherwise, I pose the portrait when (and the way) I want it!


Thanks for Reading & Good Luck - Jim

I got a 24-105 as a kit lens with a 5D2. It spent at least as much time on my 7D as it did on my 5D2. It was fantastic on both and I never had too much trouble using it indoors for all sorts. To have one lens give a range of 24 (5D2) to 168 (7D) made things very easy. Great lens, great photos, nuff said.
