I have been considering one of these to replace my Tamron 28-75 as well. Should I pickup a new copy or go for one of the good looking used ones on ebay? I would use it on a 5 and 7D.
I have the Canon 24-135 is usm that actually takes beautiful shots on my 5D but not as much the 7D...makes no sense to me.
Or should I just stick the with 24-135 since I already have it.

Thanks.
Personally I'd go for the 24-105mm L over the Tamron in a minute.  I've shot that lens and it never compared to my 24-105mm.  Have you tried AMFA on your 7D with your 24-135MM?  May make a difference. 

I'd go for the 24-105mm over the 24-135mm too.  I'd sell them both and pick up a new or almost new 24-105mm.  Personally I like new.  Sometimes there are some excellent almost new copies out there.  Always ask the seller for the date code though and only go for the newest.  When buying used, I always buy as new as I can get...

Good luck! :)
Oh btw, I've used the 24-105mm L on both my 5d Mk III and my 7d.  It performed flawlessly on both...

Thanks for the info Ken. I sometimes have a problem parting with items....like a mini pack rat lol.
Its odd my luck with lenses, my tamron is tack sharp and takes great pix on my 7d but on my 5d its a little off. On the 5d the pix froom the canon 28-135 are great but on my 7d a little off. Maybe it needs calibrated to my 7d but I havent gotten around to doing it. My tripod is broken atm and I dont think you can do that w/o one.
I do have the tamron 17-50 which is very nice on my 7d but wont work on the 5d as its for cropped cameras.

For me the 24-105mm love snuck up on me!  Hopefully you'll feel the love with your first set of images!  Congratulations on the purchase of both!  I'm sure you'll be quite pleased! :D

Great shots!

I agree too- I love this lens.  I recently got the 24-70 2.8II and love that one too!  Both have changed the way I think about shorter lenses.

Keep up the great shooting.

Really enjoyable.  Thanks for sharing! I love this lens as well.

Don't take my advice. Don't even take my advice not to take my advice.

Here's one I took last fall with the 24-105L:

That's a very nice photograph.
