The Canon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens is an economically-built, value-priced, full frame compatible zoom lens that covers the most frequently used focal lengths. This lens offers excellently-performing image stabilization along with smooth and very quiet autofocus in a light and modestly-sized package. The 24-105 STM’s image quality (especially at narrower apertures) is quite good. Though this lens is not available in a DSLR kit as of review time, it is similar to the STM kit lenses available with video-capable EOS APS-C DSLRs in very many regards.
When the 24-105 STM lens first became available, Canon had exactly one full frame compatible, non-L zoom lens with a focal length wider than 70mm. That lens was the 16 year old Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens. While the 28-135 IS has long been bargain-priced, that lens’ IS system is one of the earliest and while 135mm on the long end is very nice, 28mm often does not seem wide enough.General purpose zoom lenses are often the most-used lenses in a camera kit, and with a focal length range and other features ideal for general purpose use, I clearly see room for the lower-end, value-based EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens in Canon’s lineup.
