An amazing lens that serious photographers rave over

F4 and serious photographers? Nice

24-105mm f4 or 25 -70mm d4 are usual kit lenses with full frames...

Nice lens L glass, but really need f2.8 if want perfect walk around lens.

Plus an extra 10% off if you have Student Prime!

Yes
It's a zoom lens.

Good price for this so heat given, but for me I really want an f2.8 24-70. The canon one is so much more expensive and it's a shame that the recent Sigma one has so many bad reviews. The Tamron one looks good, but I'm not sure I trust the brand.

I have the Tamron - I only bought it because it has VR compared to Canon. I do regret this decision, I am on the second one, first had very stiff/squeeky zoom and the second one does not focus properly - more like hit and miss. Half the pictures are out of focus. I could have bought the Canon one for about £1000after cashback from Jessops a few years ago...

Great lens. My favourite in fact. I had the 24-70 f2.8. So much bulkier that I sold it and kept my 17-40 f4.

Looking at camera price buster the price does seem to have shot up in the last few years. I'm hoping there might be a 24-70 f2.8 price war around Christmas / New Year and so I'm going to hold off on this hot deal.

Jeez man, I wouldn't dream of trading the 2.8 for the f4 - night and day, especially in low light.

Looks like Amazon have price matched sites like Jessops which are advertising the price after cashback. I have seen this happen a few times before. If you also have Student Prime and qualify for the 10% discount then you actually get it for £534.60 less £105 cashback i.e. £429.60. I wouldn't claim to be a photography expert but that is one hot deal.

If you are thinking about it then I would order it now before Amazon realise their mistake. If you are on Prime then you can put it on free Nominated delivery for next week some time and you can always change your mind in the interim.

And?

It's a good price for the current times, but boy these manufacturers are taking the mick. I remember, before the 2008 crash, purchasing the 24-105 F4.0L for under £500 - and it was a brand new lens to the market back then. The original f2.8L 24-70 was around £250 more. Post 2009/10 the prices have almost doubled. Now, they want £1500 for the newest F2.8L Mkii 24-70.

The 24-105 can be had for around £580, it used to be £440 from same supplier a few years ago

Definitely. 2006-2007 was a great time in hindsight - I seem to recall getting the 100-400L for £750, 24-105L for under £400, 24-70mm 2.8L for £800-ish. I even bought a EOS 1D MK II N for £2000 brand new (although that was mostly thanks to a Jessops/Quidco mix-up!)

I can't justify the higher prices to myself anymore, but I'd have definitely picked up this lens at this price if I was still heavily into photography.

Didn't trade it for it mate. I use f1.4 50 mm prime lens for low light but found that the 17-40 f4 was great all rounder even at weddings

I managed to get the Speedlite 600EX II for £339 after cashback. I wanted to get the 70-200 f2.8 but Amazon corrected the price by the time I decided to place the order. Not that it would have made a big difference, after cashback I would have payed what was the full price nearly three years ago.

I hear ya about carrying around the f2.8 they are heavy beasts. I absolutely love that lens though think it's genuinely the best walk around lens money can buy.

Can't beat a decent prime mind, the 50mm 1.4 is a ripper!!! Beautiful bokeh

And this lens handily outperforms any of the 24-105s pretty comprehensively.
As for prices, one word: "Brexit".

Let's see about Brexit once a trade deal is done with Japan.

It's not unlikely that we'll have a zero tariff deal, meaning an instant 20% price drop.

wow I got it for £429 with cashback the other day

Hear me out here, guys. I'm a 40+ year Canon fanboy, and I've been through a lot from my first AE1 to my current full-frame body, a 5Dsr. 16-35 f4L, 24-105 f4L, 135mm f2.0L and a number of other Canon / non-Canon lenses. I also have an M3 with a 22mm prime, 11-22mm zoom and a Tamron 18-200 EF-M (Also a g9x MkII as my 'Every Day Carry')

My 'walkabout' is neither my 5Dsr or my G9x. It's my EOS M3, with the 18-200 Tamron on it, and the 22m prime or 11-22 ready to swap if need be. Not only am I perfectly happy with the IQ; I'm saving a fortune on osteopaths!

You erroneously inserted the word "not" in that sentence.

And funnily enough while we remain in the EU we get to take advantage of a zero tariff trade deal with Japan that we will lose when we leave. Note that it took four years for the EU to negotiate this, expect longer for Britain to get there post Brexit.

There is no instant 20% price drop coming, the daily mail is lying to you.

No deals no comments no history no nothing.

Yet another transient attempting to influence the true population in their rightful demand of Brexit.

Remember to get your visa request in before the queue builds up.

Let's get back on topic..

There are some wonderful sightseeing opportunities in the UK not to be missed. From Buckingham Palace to The Houses of Parliament, the London Eye is also nearby.

It would be a shame to miss the opportunity.

"On topic" is a canon L lens for not too much cash. Which I like.

If you buy this, or any other Canon lens, make sure you buy a copy of FoCal by Reikan. As long as your camera is supported it will automatically adjust the autofocus for your camera. It was amazing the difference it made with my lenses. It’s about £40 but if you are buying Canon lenses, this will ensure you get the most out of them. My 24-70 was slightly out, but the biggest improvement was for my 50
