I know this will start a cry from the boo-birds but if you want to save a bit try the Tamron 28-75 instead of the 24-105L. It is one third the price and has an edge in sharpness. My copy seldom comes off the 5D. It is my choice for Landscapes and has won a place as my portrait lens. The increased dynamic range of the 5D is a natural with this little Tamron lens, you just have to try one and see the difference in the prints. Since making this purchase I've found several others using this combo with the same results, it is no fluke. Normally by name and price point I would have dismissed this lens but I'm verry glad that I did not do so.
