I used one for a while on a 40D, for me it was easier because I came from a Tamron 28-75 so 24 seemed wide enough. Lens works great but you will probably wish you had something wider. I then paired it with a 10-22 and it was a nice combo but still its an odd place to switch. Its what finally prompted me to go full frame.
I shot a Tamron 28-75 with my 50D quite a bit, found I used it mostly 28-40 or so, and opted for the 35L a couple years ago. I recently got a full frame camera, and I find 35 a bit wide for what I'm shooting, so I'm back to being interested in the 24-105. The forthcoming 24-70 is so much more expensive, and I have other faster lenses for situations where f/4 on the 24-105 isn't enough.

Same here. Received my lens today and it is a brand new retail packaged one; not the white box. Kudos to Adorama for filling all orders.
Even though I guess it doesn't seem like a big disadvantage to have a white box version, it would be nice to receive the normal retail packaging.
I saw this deal in an email Friday evening, but didn't buy until Sunday afternoon. It was during a period where Adorama's web site was misbehaving pretty badly. Big ugly error screens, service unavailable, etc. Not so much their main web server, but perhaps something with the databases on the back end interfering with certain things on the site. I had to keep at it because I had no idea how long that price or stock would remain available. For a period of a couple hours, I wasn't sure if it really went through until it finally let me log in again and see my new pending order. The email came hours later.
Expecting delivery tomorrow. Nice upgrade to my novelty coffee mug that looks like a 24-105.
