Thanks for your comments, I notice you mention sigma? i have no experience with third party glass having never owned or used any thing other than canons own. Somewhat perplexing to think that canon cant seem to produce a decent wide angle lens.
I guess this leads me on to my next question ( sorry if this has been asked before ).
I may be in the minority here, but im not & never have been particulaly impressed by the 24-105.
I`m sure for some it`s a great lens ( Portraiture & weddings? ) but as a serious ( i use that phrase loosely) landscape lens it just dosent come up with goods.
My two main dissapointments are the CA & the lack of DOF. Ok CA not such a problem, as with distortion this can be easily corrected in pp. having said that, to suffer quite badly from distortion at the two extremes of this lens is not what you`d expect from canons finest.
So i suppose that perhaps i have only the one critisisum & thats the DOF. I tend not to go much either side of F8 & F11 due to diffration, any gain in DOF is soon negated by diffraction.
So to my question How does the 24-70 compare to the 24-105?. As i`ve mentioned previously, 90% of my photography is based on a tripod so the need for IS & the extra stop aren`t a nessesity but DOF is so could this be worth my time investing in .
Once again thanks in advance.
