Well, first-off, the 24-105 is not promoted as having any "weather sealing"...

Not so. It has the rubber seal around the mount, which normally signifies a "weather-sealed" lens.

From Canon's website, they don't say "weather sealed" either... technically...

dust- and moisture-resistant construction

Also depends on the body it's paired with, and the 24-105 / 7D combo should be pretty good...

I've had it out in all weathers, paired with 40D, 7D and 5DIII. No problems on any. Here it is getting wet on the 7D...

These are small, but the ones out there are far away.

The 24-105 is, in my experience, pretty weather sealed. I've used it in some terrible conditions with the 1DX and never had a worry.

I'm so torn! I really feel like the 24-105 would be better for me but it seems like most people with a crop go with the 17-55. I definitely don't think i will miss the wide end of 17-24, it's mainly the f4 vs f2.8 that I'm not sure about. The extra range would definitely be nice.

Would the majority opinion be that these two are pretty comparable between 24-55? (Other than f2.8 obviously)

if you're using flash indoor, f4 doesn't matter. when shooting group shots, you wanna stop down anyway to avoid others to be out of focus.

Are there any known issues with this lens? I'm pretty sure i want to pull the trigger and make the switch. My dilema now is whether to buy it new or used. It is on sale for $879on Amazon which is a lot better than i have seen it elsewhere. Seems like used i should be able o get it for around 750

I've owned this lens for 2 years and have never had an issue. There are plenty for sale right here on the forum for good prices.

UA date code lenses between a certain range of serial numbers may have a problem with the IS system at low shutter speeds, with the IS causing blur rather than stopping it. Will be fixed under warranty free of charge, the problem is a faulty circuit board. IIRC, affected serial numbers mostly (but not all) start with 42xxxx. Mine had the fault, was fixed in under a week.

Also, it seems some develop an aperture-related fault over time which is not covered by warranty. I have read about several cases of this, mine is still pretty new, so hopefully it won't do this later on.

And now some pictures :)
