I find the 24-105mm L to be a versatile lens on a 5D MK II.  It is definitely not a macro lens, but is reasonably sharp when close up.

Return of the mack ... I mean the monk.  Again, I'm very impressed with the sharpness of this lens.

Here are some images of the 1909 Loof Carousel in Spokane's Riverfront Park that I took in 2008 with my 400D and 24-105mm L.  The Carousel is in a specially constructed building, so light is low and all are at f/4 and ISO 800 which is pretty high for the 400D.

Perhaps this coming Labor Day I'll use my 5D MK II and 35mmL to upgrade the images.  We have been going every Labor Day weekend to the festivities for a few years now, the weather is great, and there are lots of activities. 







And, there is all kinds of food!

On the way back from Collingwood last Friday I could not help but get off the tram to take walk along Gertrude street and through the Carlton Gardens to enjoy the morning mist.

When I saw those shots, I was all like: I know where that is! :P

For me this is my preferred lens for portraits photography, here is the sample in very low light situation.
Thanks.

I agree - super versatile lens, I love the range, sharpness, contrast and IS is useful too. Most of the photos from my Flickr account are taken with 5D and either 24-105/4 or 50/1.4 - this combo is all I need if I want to travel light... Well, relatively light ;)

How about a pair of contrasting images of Japan -- city life versus rural life:

Great shots guys. I really love the idea of this lens, and it was the first L lens i've bought.

However it's really soft to focus on both my 5dmk2 and 7d. If i set the same shot up with my 24-105L, 24-70L, 28-300L, 50L, it is noticeably softer. I've tried getting it calibrated and micro adjusted but it's not fixed it.

Such a shame. great range, IS, great build quality and judging by all of your pics, exceptional when in the right hands.

I noticed the same softness with the 24-105 that I just bought and ultimately I decided to return it and only use prime lens for now until a new zoom update comes out maybe like the 24-70 2.8 II (hopefully with IS)!
1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses
