Here's our latest picture, shot with the 5D mkii and 24-105 f4.

Taken from a small mountain in the English Lake District National Park called Haystacks, looking north west, late evening.

Did someone on CR once call this lens 'garbage" ?  ;D

I certainly never did. I love it and use it most of the time. I love the photograph, I hope to go there some day.

Lovely! The lighting, clouds, the green and blue just all come together.

And whoever called it "garbage", I am very willing to relieve that person of the "garbage" ;)

Many thanks Guys.

 @rpt, I'm pleased you like the balance of colours colors because when we first produced this picture it disappointed, until we de saturated and gave a much more realistic saturation to the colour, and 'ping' - it worked. I think it looks like Ektachrome shot on 5x4 !

The particular 24-105 that we used for this shot is a very good copy. It holds more resolution in the centre of the frame at f8 than our 50mm f1.4 does at the same aperture

I bought this lens second hand.  Last w/e did a shoot with models in Pin Up style.  If the micro-imperfections in their skin are any indication, the lens is plenty sharp on a 5dmkII.  Clinically sharp.  Kinda gross actually.  Pretty happy for what is basically a "kit" lens.  I still like my 85mm/1.8 for speed/weight/size, but for a zoom it's pretty decent (or I got a good copy).

Cool pics, how did you get the car blur in the 2nd pic? A neutral density filter?

Thanks. No, I just used f/13, ISO 100. That lowered to speed to 3.2 sec., and I waited for the cars to start moving. I was also exposing a bit to the right, since my 5D2 is overprotective of the highlights on night shots.

Here's another couple of shots with the 24-105. As with others find who use this lens, it's not one you would love, but inevitably so many of my pictures are taken with it.

Taken at 105mm, f4 in the last few minutes of sunlight. Once again IS comes to the rescue.
