I am currently debating whether to add the 24-105mm L lens to my collection...anyone here own the lens and can give me some advice on how this lens works with the 60D...or perhaps can recommend another lens.
My biggest issue is that I need a lens that will give better quality in low light than the lenses I currently have, plus I need a fast lens... hope this makes sense
I have the 24-105L and I love it. Great for a walk-around lens, being reasonably wide and long. It also has enough range to be a single-lens solution, no need to pack a couple lenses with me just to cover a normal day. The f/4 when combined with the 60D's useable ISO6400 can result in some great photos you otherwise wouldn't be able to get in a dim situation, HOWEVER, don't think the f/4 is going to be "fast" and save you in dark rooms/clubs/whatever.
A lot of people complain that the 24mm isn't wide enough on a crop body like the 60D, but I find it meets my needs, and I do somewhere around 90% of my shooting with it. Of course, I do complement it with a 10-22mm for really wide needs and take that along when I think I'll need it.
Overall, it's really my most frequently used lens, and though I occasionally wish for the extra range of something like an 18-135mm, I wouldn't trade it in for ANYTHING.
