I very rarely use the 24-105 for single frame shots; it's a great lens for panoramics, but here is a shot of Southwell Minster taken on the 24-105L @ 28mm - I avoid 24 mm on this lens, the 24-70 f4 IS is much better at 24mm.

5DII, 100 ISO f8. Shutter about 1/40.

It's not done bad here, but it's losing it in the extreme corners big time.

nice work sporgon!    Given the choice, I would have used my 16-35mm f/4, for the sunset but in this case I was driving and had just a few seconds window of opportunity to stop, grab the camera and run. This shot was taken at about 35mm.  The 24-105 was attached to the 5D3 and I didn't have time to change lenses,  much less set up the tripod  So I settled for a 5-frame HDR.  One of the problems inherent to the 24-105 is flare, and for that reason this is the only sunset I have attempted with it.  Thank goodness for IS and great ghosting and alignment software!  This one used only Lightroom and the Nik plugin.

That's quite a dramatic image ! Would go down well on a site like 500px. I like what you have done with it. I have always found my copies of the 24-105L to be pretty good at 35mm, but that 16-35 f4 L seems quite remarkable. Trouble is when I shoot wide I am normally stitching longer lenses, so I can't quite justify it............
