You are going to have to be more specific. Bumping up to f4 given the same lens? Same format? As written, that statement doesn't make a lot of sense.

I dunno... I was rambling.

Hi guys, thanks for all of the replies. So What ive heard is that the 24-105 is a nice lens, however i "normally' would never get an f4 lens vs a 2.8 but with the FF 6d I will notice more of a 2.8 bokeh so that makes the f4 more appealing. I would like to be able to use the lens for some newborn work without buying a separate 50mm prime.. (however i might still do that) would the nifty 50 work on FF

I still want the 6d and so far the 24-105 looks good...i just have to get over the f4 but also realize ill get closer to something like 2.8?

The 24-105 is a nice option and you can always get the new 50 1.8 STM lens for 125. It's a really nice performer on my 5D3

Thanks Tally, I know this was mostly covered already but will I be getting a stop in difference with the 24-105 so basically 2.8 and when using it more on the telephoto side I will be getting noticeable boken vs the same focal length with either of my 2.8 lenses on crop?

Now i just have to keep paying attention to prices. So far ive found refurn on canon direct.... question though, how would i know shutter count? I couldnt find it anywhere on their listing...

Sometimes its just easier to see it first hand - or at least second hand. A crop Canon 1.6 camera will give the equivalent picture with a 85/1.2 @ 1.2 that a full frame will give with a 135/2 at 2.0. A crop camera using a 17-55 at 55mm @ 2.8 will give the equivalent picture as a full frame camera using a 24-105/4 at 88mm f4.5

Thanks guys and FEChariot, thats perfect, and helps a lot... plus when I need a more pleasing bokeh I can just go to my 70-200 2.8 if the shot would be better with a more telephoto as well... so between the two I should be able to get what im looking for... ALSO when doing newborn (have one coming up first couple weeks in Nov) then I can look at getting the 50mm 1.8 II I believe, is that the one whihc works on FF or does the mark I as well?

Guys, so do you think the combo of the 24-105 and 70-200 2.8 would satisfy my range enough that, if i throw in a 50mm id be good.. OR... should I get a prime or two?

THe answer may be no, because of the focal lenght of the 24-105... but maybe an 85mm or 85+50..... then id-only have those and the 70-200... but with the f4 really being more closer to 2.8 given the FF sensor... then the 24-105 might be good.... I just wanted to ask about the prime
