Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Review – Space.com | Ad On Picture

We really enjoyed testing the Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM. It’s a cut above the standard 24-70mm f/4 lenses, and it’s a lightweight and versatile tool that’s capable of capturing both landscape shots and wildlife in a field, or even snapping shots of family when you’re on vacation. In normal light, it can handle almost anything you throw at it, and the lens is light enough to slip easily into a holdall without weighing you down or taking up too much space. It’s a great accessory to have with you on most shoots. It’s not particularly a low-light or astro performer, however.

Important specifications of the Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM:

System: Canon RF mirrorless

focal length: 24-105mm

Min. focus distance: 0.2m

Weight: 395g

Dimensions: 2.9″ x 3.4″ / 76mm x 88mm

Filter size: 67mm

At $1300 at most stores, the 24-105mm is good value for money. Again, it handles most situations for the average shooter and is a great “kit” lens for an entry-level or enthusiast Canon body. However, if you are serious about acquiring one of the best lenses for astrophotography, you will need to look for more specialized gear. Here at Space we love astrophotography, so while we can really like the Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, we can’t really recommend it for photographers looking to focus on astro. Here’s why.
