    You have bought it, so learn to use it. It is a good lens.

    Why ask for comments when you've already got the lens?? Just use it...

    Before you starting thinking about buying another lens, why not ask yourself if you actually need it?

    What if i told you the 24-105 was better? Would it make you feel miserable? Well... truth is i have neither, but if i had either, I would make the best of whichever I have... Both i'm sure are very very good lens! So, shoot more!

    I would get both if I had the $$.
    Both are great for different scenarios.
    I was in the same situation regarding these 2 lenses just last week. And I have made my choice.

    Both are good lenses. The better one meets your needs, provided you make good use of it.
