Great shot! Looks good but that plane (i'm guessing?) draws attention to that right side of the photo, which draws attention to a spot retouch you must have done next to it? just a heads up! Great capture though

.... thanks so much for your comments and views on our lens... and pointing out its weaknesses.... we're happy you love your 24-70 2.8 so much. :) :D :)

Welcome to the forum also. There are perhaps thousands of 'professional photographer' members here and we all have something to share and even learn. :eek:

Just a quick word that its considered ... inappropriate... (by many members and most moderators) for members to post images taken with a different lens than which the forum thread is dedicated, such as your image above taken with the "Canon : EF 24-70 f/2.8L II"

looking forward to your 24-105L contributions ;)

This is a great range for use as an every day walk around lens. It's very versatile, light and produces great image sharpness throughout the range. There is a bit of vignetting at the wide end, which I actually like. But there is also quite a bit of barrel distortion at the wide end, which I dislike. This is quite noticeable when shooting interiors architecture; it can be corrected in software however it can be a hassle.

Also, being an f4 lens, this lens is simply not fast enough for me. I shoot a lot of images where I want the out of focus areas (bokeh) to be glassy smooth and creamy (for weddings, macros, portraits and such) and you cannot get that with this lens as good as you can with the 24-70 f2.8. Granted, in the 70mm-105mm range at f4, the bokeh looks pretty great and the 24-70 can't even get there. If you zoom all the way in, your DOF will be low and pretty darn smooth though in my case, I just prefer the look and bokeh of the 24-70 overall rather than this lens. I found myself wanting to shoot at a wider than f4 aperture a lot of the time.

The 24-105 f4 lens does have image stabilization which will help you to hand hold and get the shot in lower light situations, but there is not much that can be done to get that super smooth bokeh with it in the 24mm-70mm range. Although the 24-70 f2.8 lens is super heavy in weight compared to the 24-105.

The image stabilization in the 24-105 does also help quite a bit when shooting video however keep in mind that if you are using the built in mic, you will hear the IS motor loudly in your video, which makes it unusable; so you you will want to turn of IS anyway unless you have an external mic for your DSLR.

I'm a professional photographer and so while my needs and likes are geared towards preferring the 24-70 f2.8, this doesn't mean the 24-105 isn't ideal for many if not most. After all, it is quite a bit lighter than the 24-70 to carry, it gives you more range at the long end and has image stabilization.
