Waaay to rich for me at the moment, just shelled out on a new 60D and my other half just bought me a Bigma, so we're skint for a bit (We work together in our own business).

The 6D is going to be a xmas purchase hopefully, Thanks though!

I say wait till then and get it as a kit with the 24-105l.

What about the 24-70 f4 IS ? Haven't really read any reviews since I went with the 2.8, but it's being a kit lens for some cameras now.

24-105 (or 24-70) is your best bet. There is always sacrifice with hyperzooms. Maybe the 28-300L is not that bad but that is expensive and heavy.
Or some primes. 50mm is very versatile.
6D with hyperzooms... *sighs, shakes his head, walks away*

The 24-70 mk ii Mtf result is clearly a winner compared with mk i, but looking at 100% size without cropping or zooming would it be visible enough to tell the difference?

Agreed. You won't get as good a walkaround or as good a deal on said lens as you will getting a 6d+24-105L. Sell extraneous lenses/etc to hurry the process; but if you are that constrained better to get what you want/need than waste money on a filler.

I thought the 24-105mm L f/4 is a better lens the nthe 24-70 L F/4

24-105L has better range; 24-70l f/4 is a little sharper and has the quasi-macro mode. I have a 24-105L so I value the range more; if I had a 24-70 f/4 I'd likely value the sharpness and macro more.

Very few people have read what the OP has stated. He wants more range on the long end than 105 and less weight than the 24-105L. Pretty slim pickings. The only two that I can think of are the Tamron 28-300 and Tamron 28-300 VC.


6D, 5D, 7Dii, Eos R and too many lenses, flashes and aux. gear to list!:cool:

I agree somewhat, but very tough to get more range than the 24-105 while retaining decent quality. Those older tamrons are very weak in IQ and TS might be better off downgrading to crop and picking up their ultrazooms.

You can make a point that the 24-105 has comparable IQ, and somewhat good range, but as a true 28-300, I think crops would beat any other FF alternative. TS can go nikon, which makes a decent 28-300.
