    on the verge of purchasing a new lens and cant make mind up wether to go for the

    canon EF 24-105mmf4 isusm
    or the
    canon EF 24-70mm f2.8 Lusm

    I know the later is a heavier lens
    The lens will be mainly used for landscapes and general. NOT PORTRAIT.

    Views appreciated..David

    Don't want to go really wide instead? I don't know if you still have the 350D that you indicated you had on earlier uploads (you've fallen into the habit, it seems, of not mentioning your camera model anymore on later uploads), but 24mm won't give you a lot of width or depth for landscapes.

    I have owned both.

    The 24-105 is longer has IS but is f4. The 24-70 is 2.8, it has better bokeh and is sharper.

    The 24-70 is a much better lens in my opinion. It performs more like my other Ls whereas the 24-105 performed like a very good consumer lens.

    It wasn't just a case of I got a bad 24-105, I've tried more than one copy with the same results.

    Go with the 24-70, I love mine.

    I don't have the 24-70 but did have the 24-105 and would concur with this opinion. I sold mine.

    Good for you. I'd get a 17-40 or 16-35, in that case. Gives you more of the landscape in one shot and creates a stronger feeling of depth.
