I just placed an order for the 24-105L. It will be paired with the 80D. Hopefully I get similar results to what some have gotten here. It is surprising there isn't very much activity in this thread.

My 28-300L is great and performs well bare, with filters and stopped down but the tension ring doesn't work anymore. Zoom creep on it is more like slide/thud! Yes, sending it in for repair is an option but that could cost half of what the 24-105L costs. So it got me thinking that around 80% of my landscapes are within the 24-105mm range. The 100-400L could take care of the rest of the long end. It is possible the 28-300L would feel unloved.

I have the 18-135 but few, if any, of the images have ever made it out of LightRoom. It appears the 24-105L is smaller, half the weight and at least as good as the 28-300L but with the added benefit of 24-28mm (something that I've wanted several times). Hopefully it likes filters and being stopped down as much as the 28-300L.

The 15-85 was also a consideration because of its sharpness but zoom creep seems to be common and it isn't quite long enough.

Hope to be posting soon.

Since it has been branded a "KIT" lens, it does not attract the same interest as the more exotic optics.
I love my copy though.

Congratulations on your new purchase! I like my copy very much. I've been lazy regarding posted pictures, so I'll post a few now.

It really is a terrific lens. I just get so tired of people saying it's not.
Your copy looks spot on.

I received my mkII last Wednesday from BH and unfortunately since then its been raining like in Noah's days, thunder storms and everything! Unbelievable! I still haven't tried it out yet.
I use to have the first version of this lens along with a couple of the very best Prime lenses like the 85mm1.2 and the 70-200 2.8 MKII and I can tell this lens is a very good one to carry around for those days you don't want to carry the heaviest or the expensive ones around.
Can't wait for the clouds and thunder to get out of my sky and start joining this forum.
I'm slowly trying to comeback photography after a long long dive into a chronic depression... I almost kinda feel like a newbie here so please forgive if some stupid question might come up.

Cheers, hope to join soon.

Alex

Welcome aboard! Hope it helps with the depression. I know my eyes light up any time I can go shooting.
