Photography Blog published their exhaustive review of the new Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II lens. They found that the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II is “much better” than the lens it replacers, the highly popular Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS.

In the conclusion they write:

[the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II] offers a very versatile focal range whilst being tack-sharp from 24mm to 50mm, both in the centre and at the edges of the frame. Sharpness at 70-105mm isn’t quite as good when shooting wide-open at f/4, but overall the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM delivers excellent sharpness across the frame. Vignetting at wide-open apertures and some barrel distortion at 24mm are the only other real optical issues of note.

Build quality is excellent, certainly up to the usual L-lens standard, and Canon also provide a very good lens hood and padded case. Focusing was very quick and quiet on the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV that we tested the lens with, and manual focus over-ride at any time is a great feature, as is the effective built-in optical image stabilisation system, now worth up to 4 stops rather than the 2.5 stops that the previous model offered. Read the review…
