World traveler
You and this lens should log some quality time together. With a fixed f/4.0 maximum aperture throughout its zoom range, you'll have excellent light sensitivity even at full magnification. Canon's acclaimed image stabilization technology improves low-light performance, enabling you to use shutter speeds much slower than you'd ordinarily employ. This lens will give you great, artifact-free close-ups, and expansive-yet-vibrant panoramas while you're documenting that once-in-a-lifetime road trip. This could end up being your main "go-to" glass.

An ultra-quiet USM motor gives quick and accurate autofocus response while shooting fast and unpredictable subjects. And, like all of Canon's L-series lenses, the optics rank among the industry's best. Aspherical elements and Super-UD glass mean faithful image transmission with minimal color fringing or blurred edges.

Product Research


Overview: The Canon EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens is a standard zoom lens for Canon EOS cameras. It covers a wide range of focal lengths from wide angle to telephoto. The lens features a built-in Image Stabilizer (IS), as well as an Ultrasonic Motor (USM). The lens is constructed of 18 lens elements in 13 groups for truly exceptional imaging capability.

Image Stabilizer (IS): The built-in Image Stabilizer can be used in the AF (autofocus) or MF (manual focus) modes. The Image Stabilizer gives the equivalent effect of a shutter speed three stops faster. The 2-position switch located on the barrel of the lens allows you to turn the image stabilizer on and off.

Ultrasonic Motor (USM): The EF24-105mm lens is equipped with a ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM) for silent, high-speed auto focusing.

Focusing Ring: Regardless of whether you're in manual or auto focus mode, the focusing ring always works. This means you can auto focus on a subject, but manually change the focus by turning the focusing ring.

Lens Hood: The included EW-83H lens hood can keep unwanted light out of the lens, and protect the lens from rain, snow, and dust. You can reverse-mount the lens hood on the lens for storage.

Optional Filters: The EF24-105mm lens has a 77mm mounting thread on the front of lens for attaching screw-on type filters.

Canon 24-105

Written By John S, Plano, TX on Thursday, June 20, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First of all, this is a well built will like the touch and feel. I use the Canon 5D II body with this lens, the pictures are sharp and crisp, colors are real and true. This lens stays on my camera most of the time, the only time it comes off is for sporting events when I switch to the Canon 70-200mm L lens. The combination of these 2 lens will cover just about everything you shoot. I easily recomend the 24-105.

Pros: Build quality, quick silent motor, great pictures

Cons: None at this point

Excellent Lens

Written By undrgnd40, Minnesota on Sunday, February 19, 2012

I've had this lens for about 6 months. I use it for professional work and for hobby applications. I find it to be the perfect zoom range for most of my applications, even on a crop sensor camera. The image quality is exactly what I would expect from an "L" series lens. The images are razor sharp at every aperture setting and at all focal lengths. Autofocus is fast and quiet. Image Stabilizer is helpful indoors. If you're looking to upgrade to an exceptional lens, this versatile lens is well worth the money! A lens hood and soft case are included.

Pros: Image quality, build quality, versatility.

Cons: None... You get what you pay for.
