I use to REALLY want the 24-105. Bid (and lost) on a couple on the bay. However, lately I just don't see myself using it. I think...I think...I might be turning into a prime guy
. This really is the perfect casual walk-around lens, but when I pick up my camera I seem to always "be in it to win it"...meaning I only want to take the best pics possible. For my style that means fast primes, unless I'm doing landscape, but I already have a 17-40 for that.
$700 is a good price though. I'd be picking one up if I thought I'd use it enough. Someone convince me I need this lens!
