The current 24-105 f/4is is a very competent lens that will be with us in its current form for quite some time. I bought mine after a staggeringly disappointing run of four sub-standard 24-70 f/2.8 zooms, and it's an absolute cracker, pin sharp wide open and useful IS. What's there to change? The optical issues are corrected automatically on import into LR4. I thought I'd be selling the 24-105 when the 24-70II shipped, but this one is a keeper.

I have owned 3 of the 24-105s (dropped the first; sold the second; using the third kitted with the Mk III). I have been very pleased with its sharpness and contrast. I shoot nearly everything wide open or near; this is my daily walkaround lens. In truth I don't think it is as incredibly sharp at my 70-200 version 2; but it is very sharp indeed. Yes, I'd like it to be a 2.8 24-135... but I'd like to be rich and beautiful, too. For outdoor walkaround stuff I think it is a very good choice and good value.
