I've been using the 24-105L for about 3-4 months now everyday. I average about 100-200 shots a day. General walking about on in the mornings before I start work in the streets, and my lunch hour and at night usually capturing a landscape or seascape of some kind. Most of the time hiking up the munros of Scotland (or trying to) Most of my images end up on Alamy or Picfair. I do shoot for the Press on occasion when asked too.
My point being is that I don't think the 24-105L is all it's cracked up to be. Is there anything else that's going to combat the issues I have with it?
- Corners fall apart at 24mm even at f/8
- Distortion at 24mm is pretty poor.
- Chromatic Aberration is pretty bad in the corners.
I shoot stock images for Alamy, and I'm looking to produce better quality images. Competition is tough on there and I really need a lens that's going to cut it in the IQ dept.
I don't really care whether it's an L lens or not, Canon or other. I just want a good walk about lens I can use for professional grade inspection. Could be a wedding, stock image, large print or other.
Could also look at replacing for primes if needed. Open to suggestion really Also have my 400mm 5.6L for sale so having a bit of a switch about.
