Has anyone used an STM lens (40, 24-105) on an Elan 7, or any film body for that matter? Does STM work OK on film bodies? I don't really need the STM, just looking for cheap glass. The 24-105 STM is just better glass than my 28-105, and it has IS.

Yes, STM lenses do work with older EOS film cameras. I tried my 40mm STM on my EOS 630 and it works just fine.

Thanks. The only other mention of that I could find was in a KR review.

Well, uhhh, to tell the truth, I did want to hear it from a reliable source.

Now I am kind of curious as to why this lens isn't available as a refurb. It was released like 9 months ago. I'd consider paying $300-400 for it. And I'd sell my 15-85 to get the cash. Net cost: $0, and I can use it on all my cameras - Elan 7, 60D, 6D.

Mike, I got my 24-105 STM today. You were absolutely correct; it works just fine on my Elan 7. The film isn't processed yet, but the focus seemed to work just fine. So far, I am generally impressed with this lens. If focuses a tiny bit slower than my 28-105, but it is hugely better wide-open at all focal lengths. I sold my 15-85 for the same price I paid for the STM, so the move cost me shipping and Paypal fees on one lens. Now I have a decent (certainly better) mid-zoom with IS that works on all my cameras. My G.A.S. is satisfied, temporarily... as usual.

I was looking for a 24-105mm and I found an F4L version that I've picked up, but while I was looking I found the STM version on canon price watch for $399.00 brand new.
The link is as follows:

http://www.canonpricew​atch.com …TM-price.html?streetprice (external link)

This was several days ago and I don't know if it's still available but you could look into it.

If you haven't used them for purchase you have to email Gordon and he will set up the supplier and you then would contact them to purchase.

Tomorrow I will be receiving my 24-105mm F4L lens "White" box USA warranty that I got for $637 on a three day shipping.

I'm thinking about one of these for my wife as she doesn't like the weight and at $399.00 that is were I think the lens should be at a maximum price.

Good luck in getting your gear together.

I opted for the 24-105 STM version for several reasons. I don't use a zoom in this range, often. The IS on the STM version is better. The STM also exhibits less distortion at the wide end, where I will use it most. With this version, I lose LR and in-camera correction profiles, some (very small) bit of focus speed and gain some distortion and CA at the long end. And last, but certainly not least, I got it for $350, all-in. I co-incidentally sold my 15-85 for $350. Now I have a mid-zoom with IS that works on all my cameras: 60D, 6D, Elan 7.

My 10-second review of the 24-105 STM: Very sharp wide open at all apertures. It improves at f/8, but hardly needs it. Focus is DEAD-QUIET; the IS makes more noise; that is just weird, even my USM lenses make a little bit of sound. AI-Servo seems adequate for a lens I'd be shooting at f/5.6 in that mode. The worst feature, so far, is the pincushion distortion at the long end. I find it noticeable, and annoying. It is easily correctable by using the LR 24-105 f/4L as a base, and adjusting from there. I will make some presets at a few standard focal lengths.

Great to hear and I'm still considering picking one up for my wife as I've in reviews that the F4L can a little front heavy on a Rebel.
Thanks for the feed back as it seems that I haven't heard a lot of user reviews and yours seems to hit all the points of interest.
