I like the second one Sporgon! 

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.

I finally replaced my ancient Tamron 28-75 2.8, when the price of the 24-105 got down to $725 last week.  It came in a white box with lens hood, pouch and US warranty registration papers.  I assume it was part of a kit.

First I did a focus test.  The point of focus at F/4 was within the depth of field at both ends of the zoom range, but being a bit obsessive about focus accuracy I put in +1 AFMA at both ends to make it closer to perfect.  Then I took the new lens and my 5D3 to the Portland Rose Garden for some practice.

I have to say I am very impressed with the autofocus, center sharpness and color rendering.  Edge sharpness is not very important in my work, so I can't comment on that.  The folks at LensRentals.com mention this lens as one of their least troublesome lenses, so hopefully it will continue to work well for a long time.

Here is a shot at F/4, 1/400, ISO 200.  It's been a while since I had an image that wasn't too naughty to post here!

I love my 24-105 too.
It's on the camera (5D3) 90% of the time and probably the most versatile lens I own.
I've done entire weddings using just this lens both for stills and movies and I'm still inlove with the colour and contrast it gives.

Here's some shots of the Sydney Harbour Bridge during Sydney's Vivid Festival to show how good it is even at night.

I have been using mine for some macro work. Works pretty good on the 40D (not so much on the 5D3 but I am working on that). ;D

This lens isn't what you want to shoot the Milky Way with, but if it's all you have with you, at least you can come home with something. I have to say, I'll never "love" this lens, but I sure do end up using it a lot. "Going on a trip, taking the 5D3 and...the 24-105...". (but I was really wishing I had my Rokinon 35 with me for this shot, wasn't expecting the opportunity to shoot stars so didn't pack it)

Went to the hot rod show today and used the 24-105 as a walking around lens.  I added a lot vignetting in Lightroom. :)

This was at F/4.5, 55mm, ISO 100, 1/320 using the 5D3.
