    Default Canon EFS 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS vs. EF 24-105mm f/4L IS

    Hi bros,
    I wanna buy an all-in-one lens. I have read the reviews of both lens but if anyone have used both of them please help to have some comments and advice. Currently I got 50D with Tokina 12-24 f/4 DX, Canon 50mm f/1.4.
    Thanks.

    IQ wise, the 4x L zoom will be better than a 10x zoom. but the later has longer reach and flexibility for an all-in-one
    if using by itself, the 24-105 might not be as wide on a crop sensor as the 18-200mm

    You already owned a uwa lens; Tokina 12-24. Get the 24-105.

    For a crop body I would recommend to use the Canon 18-200IS -> http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=481860

    So far it's the only crop lens that I kept...

    Anson so this means most of the time you just pack your 450 and the 18-200?

    If I don't need my F2.8 lenses for the range, it's the only lens that I normally bring.

    for crop body, i personally would choose 18-200 for the wide angle & longer reach & consider 24-105 if eventually planning to move to full-frame... just that there'll be an inconvenience to switch to Tokina for wide angles. on the tele end, 105mm x 1.6 crop factor is more than what i need for most of my photos.

    Get 24-105 F4L is better in IQ and bulit and L's retains re-sell value maybe you will upgrade FF in future...
