hmmm shall I?
« on: September 11, 2012, 11:34:34 PM »
Ok has anyone got the Canon 24-105mm and if so can you recommend it. I have at the minute my Sigma 24-70mm but sometimes I feel I'd like that wee bit more length. I do love my Bigma as its a great walk around lens but sometimes its just not practical ( Saturday I nearly gave Murphy my dog brain damage 3 times turning around and clonking him on the head with it) :knuppel2:. I don't need any wider as I have wide angle lenses but would like to start from the 24 ish end so if anyone has any other recommendations let me know cheers  :)

Well, an interesting question this one, as mine and my brother inlaws are being packed up to go back to canon to be repaired.

Basically there is a fault internally and the ribbon cable can fail.


But other than that, it is a fine lens - not as good as the 24-70f2.8 - but doesn't have the cost associated with it either.

It is probably my most used lens in reality.

IMHO it is a great lens and I use it all the time. Might not have 2.8 but I have yet to find that a limitation with the type of photography that I do.

Professional photography mag has a review of the Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 - and the reviewer compared it to the L F4 - the Tamron came out very well against it. If the extra length isn't a deal breaker, have a look!

Thanks guys. Ive researched til Im blue in the face now and I think this is the lens I want. Ive just treated myself to a Canon 10-22mm so I think given the crop it would just fit in nicely with my gear. Let you know when I get one.
