Eric when I first saw the first pic and then the second I expected a 3rd where you
blended the focus together :)

Haha...Robert, I barely have time for the photos these days much less the processing! You are right though...I should have had a third for the set.

It is a bit difficult to come up with comparative examples as I very seldom (if ever) carry the two lenses together. And my 24-105 might be a bad example and my 24-70 could be a good example. I only have my two lenses with which I can experiment.

However, I do notice that images from the 24-70 appear to be a lot sharper, especially around the edges, where I find the 24-105 to be a bit soft. Yes the 24-70 doesn't have an image stabilizer, but with a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 combined with the EOS 6D's excellent ability in low light, I find myself wondering whether it is really needed.

Yesterday, I was wandering around downtown Brisbane, but the weather didn't exactly lend itself to taking downtown photos. So I popped in to an Irish Pub for a beer. I decided to take a photo of the bar. - It is a typical bar in an Irish Pub. There were no people standing at the bar. - Very atypical! ;-)a I set the aperture to f/10 to get a decent depth of field and let the camera do the rest. - 1/25s, f/10.0, ISO:6400. A little bit of post processing with Capture One Pro.

Look at the sharpness and clarity of the signs, particularly those advertising rum on the far left and the far right. I'll try to remember to take the 24-105 along with me next time I go there for comparitive purposes.

I have to agree with you. I sold my 24-105 as it was so soft and I used to feel quite annoyed when I read reports of how sharp it was - mine was not. I currently have both the 24-70 f/4 IS and the 24-70 f/2.8 II and I have no doubt that the 2.8 II is sharper even without IS. I use the f/4 solely for going up the hills as the 6D 24-70 f/4 is the lightest combo I have. One of these days, saea501, I'll do a side-by-side comparison.

GoHokiesGo, on the flip side to Annie's experience I didn't see a huge difference in the real world. I've had my 24-70 f2.8ii a couple of months now and only today sold my 24-105.

My best advice is to read the photozone reviews of these two lens. From everything I read before buying the 24-70 (which was a lot!) I based my expectations in resolution and aberration control to be the difference as shown on the photozone reviews... and that is exactly what I got. I'm really pleased with the 24-70 but I bought it more for the aperature, better aberration control, and of course those extra pointy sun stars ;-)a

Just curious, when you sell a soft lens, how do you advertise it?

Something like this?

For sale 1 x Canon 24-105mm f/4. Nice & sharp & in excellent condition.

Selling as going to mirrorless system

That would be great, Annie...as I like my 24-105 quite a bit. Soft is surely not a word I would use to describe mine. Only qualifier I would mention on this image is that it was shot at 12500.

I go to a 1300+ acre marsh area near where I live that is just full of all kinds of birds. Got some decent pictures yesterday. Real pretty day....about 80 degrees...they were all out buzzing around.

I sent it in as part-exchange to Wex in the UK. They test it out and make an offer. I don't have to tell any lies or feel I'm cheating anyone. I have quite a few lenses and I know what, to me, looks sharp. To someone else it could appear fine - I believe sharpness is subjective and relative!

In fact I think you are one of the people with whom I was comparing my images. This photo appears very sharp to me.
