Canon has launched an affordable under-$1,000 EF-mount standard zoom for enthusiasts stepping up to full-frame who can’t afford a pro lens. At just $599, the new Canon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM features image stabilization (IS) as well as Canon’s latest stepping autofocus motor (STM) for video. With results just in, let’s see how this “budget” EF-mount lens stacks up against the pricier competition.
For many people an introduction to photography is through a compact camera: usually, these days, one with a zoom lens covering medium-wide through to short telephoto.
