I am extremely happy with my purchase of this lens. Not withstanding the lens was on back order from October 31st when I ordered it. It works well after dark and in low light situations. It is now my everyday lens which I do not remove from my camera (Canon 70D). The clarity is great.
Very happy with this lens. Very fast. Sharp.
I've read a lot of reviews about the older version of this lens, the EF 22-105mm BEFORE the ii version came out. This is a significant improvement. The quality is excellent, although not perfect in all situations, and I've noticed it lets in a lot more light than my non-L series Canon lens I was using. I'm both a professional news photographer and landscape/travel photographer. For news photography, which has constant changes in the environment from minute to minute, I was pleased with the ability to go to a lower ISO for indoor situations. My 18-200mm Canon was awful in low-light... this 24-105mm IS ii USM lens has much less noise, making my job much easier. There are some chromatic aberrations but only in rare situations. Overall I'm very excited about this lens and the use I will get out of it. I do the daily news grind but am going to NZ in a few months and this lens will be my go-to lens. I also have a 70-200mm IS ii f/2 lens which is amazing, but I cannot use it in normal situations. The 24-105mm is also sturdy but not too heavy. Two thumbs up!
Love it-had the first version of this lens, this is even better. Most versatile lens I use.
