The professional's lightweight standard zoom.
L-series qualityThe EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM incorporates Canon's highest standards of precision optics. The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, combining outstanding image performance and ultimate operability with dust and moisture resistant construction.LightweightWeighing just 670g, the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM offers 4.3x zoom in a lightweight body. Fixed apertureWith no change in aperture over the full focal length range, photographers can set exposure at the widest aperture and zoom through to 105mm without slowing shutter speed.Image StabilizerThe EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM features Canon's 3-stop Image Stabilizer (IS). Ideal for handheld work, IS allows use of shutter speeds up to 3-stops slower with no perceptible increase in image blur. For stabilised panning, IS Mode 2 only corrects for unwanted vertical shake.Super UD and aspherical lens elementsThe lens incorporates a Super UD (ultra-low dispersion) glass element to eliminate secondary chromatic aberrations and aspherical lens elements to correct spherical aberrations. The result is crisp, high contrast, undistorted images throughout the entire zoom range without colour fringing at subject outlines.Auto focusA ring USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive responsive, near-silent high speed auto focus. Good holding torque stops the focusing lens group with precision without overshoot. Full time manual focus override is available without having to switch out of AF. Minimum focus distance is 0.45m throughout the zoom range.Super Spectra coatingsOptimised Super Spectra lens coatings and lens element shaping suppress flare and ghosting - more prone to occur with digital cameras due to reflection off the image sensor. Coatings also help achieve true colour balance and increase contrast for vivid hi-fidelity images.Pleasing background blurAn almost perfectly circular barrel aperture helps to create an even and attractive background blur.AccessoriesA petal shaped hood and soft case are included

Comments about Canon EF 24-105mm F/4L Image Stabilizer:
I had the Canon 17-40 and loved it but just needed more zoom for my main lens, that is why i decided on this one. It still gets wide enough but can zoom almost 3 times as far. Great lens, like any Canon L series lens will be.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

You get what you pay for . . .
from Aliso Viejo, CA
I am a casual photographer trying to capture life as it happens in the best image quality I can through our travels. This lens combined with any of Cannon's Rebel DSLR's offers razor sharp image quality and excellent color - it is particularly forgiving in low light circumstances and very suitable for a wide variety of general uses. The only drawback is that it is a little on the large side and a little on the heavy side - but worth the size & weight for the image quality and ease of use!

I am very happy with the camera and lens that I ordered. I am an amateur photographer and the pictures that I taken are very clear and the camera is easy to use. It is exactly what I expected.
Terrific Event and Walk Around Lens
from Upstate, NY
Terrific lens. Great sharpness. Quiet, fast autofocus. I'm using this primarily for event photography and have had great success so far with my results being tack sharp and the color exacting. I look forward to using this as a "walk around" lens for vacations etc. Like all the "L" series lenses, you pay a premium but the expense is justified by exceptional results.

Everything I would expect from an L-Series lens. Great optical quality and solidly built. This is a great range lens for use as an everyday walk around lens. The image stabilization really helps to get the shot in low light situations. Sharp and quiet with excellent color and contrast.
