The official marketing text of Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Black as supplied by the manufacturer

When manoeuvrability is important and lens quality crucial, the L-series EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM stands alone as the professional's lightweight standard zoom.

L-series optics
Lightweight 4.3x zoom
f/4 through zoom range
3-stop Image Stabilizer
Super UD and aspheric lens elements
Fast auto focus
Super Spectra coatings
Circular aperture provides pleasing background blur
Soft case and lens hood

The professional's lightweight standard zoom.

L-series quality
The 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.

Weighing just 670g, the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM offers 4.3x zoom in a lightweight body.

Fixed aperture
With 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 Stabilizer
The 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.

Super UD and aspherical lens elements
The 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 focus
A 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 coatings
Optimised 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 blur
An almost perfectly circular barrel aperture helps to create an even and attractive background blur.

A petal shaped hood and soft case are included.

This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).

Good Canon L build and mechanical quality, Effective IS and quick USM focusing, Polariser-friendly internal focusing, Compatible with full-frame bodies.
Bad Lacking wide-angle on cropped bodies, Relatively expensive, Fringing visible even on cropped-frame, Less compelling if youre not going full-frame.

The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM ($999.99) is a pricey lens in the company's premium line of L-series glass. Its design is appealing on paper: a 4.4x zoom with a maximum f/4 aperture throughout its range, a tough, dust- and splash-resistant design, and a...
