Eml58, that shot with the fire is simply NatGeo quality, truly one of the best nature shots I've seen in years.
Care to share the story behind?

Looking for some recommendations if I need to have some older EF lenses repaired. For instance, my trusty EF 20-35/2.8L has developed a rattle inside that sounds suspiciously like a loose element. I live in the Midwest USA but no problem in shipping anywhere in the States. If you have had good luck with any shop(s), would appreciate contact info. Thanks in advance. (Apologies if this thread has been asked before. If so, where can I find previous info?)
This was an interesting encounter. If I moved, the deer moved the other way, always keeping that same stalk of grass between us..... It was as if she was trying to hide behind the grass
Are you sure about this ? I always thought the 24-105 wasn't parfocal. After reading your post I tried it specifically to test this.If 24-70mm f4 IS is parfocal - I would consider that. If it's not - you can not zoom on target and maintain focus.The 24-105L is parfocal, the 24-70/4L IS is not.
When focusing at 105mm and then zooming out it does seem to hold focus, but this may be the result of DoF on a f4 lens. However when focusing at 24, then zooming in it seems to loose focus.
I was basing that statement on a quote from Chuck Westfall (technical mouthpiece for Canon USA): "There's a cam inside the 24-105mm lens that is designed to maintain an accurate focus when the lens is zoomed from tele towards wide."
Reading that statement literally, it doesn't say that it maintains focus when zoomed from wide to tele...
If 24-70mm f4 IS is parfocal - I would consider that. If it's not - you can not zoom on target and maintain focus.
The 24-105L is parfocal, the 24-70/4L IS is not.
it is not possible to upload any pictures (the size is correct) - what can be the problem.
