Well I have finally got my tax refund from one government lol so now I am thinking about getting a new walkaround lens preferably an used one if I will be able to find one. I have heard some wonderful things about the EF 24-105 and read a few reviews. I am sure it's waaay better than my EF-S 17-85 IS lens but the only thing I don't like about the L lens is it's quite narrow, 24mm or 38mm on a crop body course I do take quite a lot of landscape shots but also animals (not wildlife) and portraits. So I am wondering if there is any other lens out there that is better or similar to the Canon lens? and I'd like to hear your opinion about that lens Any kind of advice or suggestions would be appreciated!
