The 24-105 is a very nice lens on FF with a very convenient focal range. I've used mine nine years now for social events, fine art prints, exhibits and museum publication work.

It's my most used travel lens
5D3+24-105f/4
I've quit taking anyting else.. (with the exception of the 100-400L)
It's been to Europe, Cuba, Costa Rica, Egypt and Hawaii so far..
It produces great color and its' focus is quick and accurate..
As with any zoom, there are some small nits..

I love my 24-105 and I've used it on both my 6d and 7d, but honestly after I bought the 15-85 I rarely ever use the 24-105 on my crops. The 15-24 focal length on the crop was huge for me, I realized, and I almost always use the 15-85 over the 24-105 on the crops.

I've moved almost completely to FF now (7D finally for sale), but I really didn't like the IQ from the 24-105mmL after using the 15-85mm for so long. That's one of the best EF-S lenses available. I finally got rid of the 24-105mm and went for a 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM and couldn't be happier.

I think decalf are the cows they make diet ice cream from.

Anyway, just wanted to chime in with 24-105 is very versatile FL on full frame. I bought the 24-105 STM for video on my 6D. The IQ and focus speed of the STM version are more than acceptable to me. And it was 2/3 the price of an f/4L. It compliments my 18-55 STM nicely on the 70D, too.

Thanks for all the helpful advice! My copy of the 24-105 arrived last week and while I didn't get too much of a chance to play with it over the weekend, I was able to grab a few quick shots during the mini heat wave we've had in New England. I also took a few of a flying seagull just to see how the AF worked out and it was very quick and quiet!

Previously my primary lens was a Tamron 28-75 F2.8. This lens was used on various Canon cameras from at least a 10D through my 7D. Then my wife purchased for me the 24-105 F4L IS lens. It is my primary lens and is a very sweet lens.

My lenses are: 17-35 F2.8-F4 Tamron; 28-75 F2.8 Tamron; 70-300 F4-F5.6 IS L Canon, 24-105 F4 IS L Canon and then 2 different Lensbaby lenses.

You indicate you have the range covered and that your primary lens suits your needs so at this time I would not consider the 24-105 unless you want the IS or the constant F4 aperture.
