The Ring USM (note the RING, not a micro motor like the 70-300 or the 50 1.4), are faster than STM to focus. But they are not a variable speed or silent, so they aren't as smooth for video. That said, the video from it looks great.

I've been following this discussion w/interest, I have the 18-135 (non STM) but am lusting after the 24-105L w/ the current good deals available. Do you guys think its significantly better (for a noob) - especially considering I would be giving up a little range (18-24 and 105-135)?

both the 17-55 and 24-105 are ring type. decisions decisions.

thanks for the info.

commenting my own post. i might need the 2.8 in video though. hmmm

the other option is the tamron 24-70 F2.8VC but it's expensive and i'm not sure of its focusing speed.

how about the canon 35 F2 IS? it's $599.99 now in amazon, it was about 899 when it came out. and it's a ring-type USM.

I just upgraded from a 28-135 IS to the 24-105L on my 60d and there is definitely a difference on those two. Having studied long and hard trying to determine whether its worth it, my reading indicates the 18-135 with STM seems to be good but only in the mid range where you would get coverage with the L anyway. The previous (non STM) are not nearly so well regarded.

First impressions - it is really nice using this display as the viewfinder with DSLRcontroller. I'm still waiting on EOS Remote app to finish loading

After using EOS Remote, the DSLR controller is a much better app to use the Nexus 7 as a display.

The EOS Remote is clearly for a mobile device as the resolution takes a hit on a screen so large.

However, DSLR controller really retains the sharpness and it was nice to use. It would be great for a video set-up or maybe even landscape photos. Pretty amazed by the resolution of this tablet.

Went and played with a 70D a few times now and think I'm about ready for a 3rd body. Well, maybe sell the XSI to help with the cost. I played with the 24-105 and I was really surprised how quiet it was even though it's not the new motor. My friend that got me the 24-105 for $500 is looking into what he can get me into the 70D for. (Fingers crossed) Anyhow, It's been one storm after another here so I've been taking the scenic ways home from work the last few nights and been getting some great clouds and such. Ugh, WTF Flickr?! Down for Panda?

I have the 24-105 on my 60D crop sensor and while I do love the range and optical acuity - f/4 is often....... "barely" fast enough for me unless I can get distance between my subject and background.

In all my time with a crop sensor I had not really ever seriously considered the ef-s 17-55mm f/2.8. My typical shooting is for a love on the long end of lenses... But "Creativity" is on the short end, or wide apertures... so its only been quite recently I've been thinking about the 17-55 f/2.8.

Wow, even as I write this I'm thinking of getting it... I had thought of getting the 18-55 STM as my wide angle but why not get the 17-55 2.8 and sell my 24-105L... hmm... something to ponder over the coming weeks...

the 24-105 has great optical acuity and focal range but it takes certain variables to get your background bokeh.... its really only in this post that I'm realizing that I prefer bokeh (background blur) to having 105mm at f/4, if you take my meaning...

Mathematical Addendum: I've seen some math by some who equate 105 @ f/4 bokeh to f/2.8 @ XXmm... I've no idea about that at the moment... :p :cool:
