Since Mark wanted his 5D so badly he and I struck a deal on the 5D kit. He got an extra discount on the body and I walked away with a brand new 24-105 4L IS for $750... except I only paid $600 because he also wanted my 28-105 3.5-4.5 USM. The 24-105 retails for upwards of $1050! :eek:

Obligatory glamor shot of said lens:

sweet! that IS will come in handy for making "IMAGE STABILIZER" actually in focus!

I had my 90mm TS-E on for that but I was too lazy to get it tilted just right :lol:

Nice Carl.

I'm interested to see how you like it as I'm a big fan of the f/4 zooms... I just wish the hood on this was like the 24-70 hood, but oh well. Plus that hood works very well on the 17-40 FYI. ;) Requires a slight trim for FF, but works on 1.3 and up.

Agreed the hood design on the 24-70 is very clever and the way it should be done.

I would head out and test it soon, although it's so hot & humid out that haze will kill any chance of seeing how sharp it is and the heat will make me not want to be out there anyway.
