Default Canon 24-105mm lens

I just recently purchased the Canon 24-105mm IS lens. I have a Canon
t2i and now I'm wondering if the lens should be used with a full frame
camera. Does anyone know if this lens should be used on a full frame
camera?

The 24-105mm is a superb lens. It works well with a crop factor or Full Frame camera. You just have to remember that with the crop factor the lens is equivalent to 38-168mm.

Are you dissatisfied with the 24-105 on your T2i for some reason?

I'm not exactly sure how I should be using the lens, if that makes sense. I felt
when I took pictures with it, they turned out over-exposed and not as sharp as I
thought they would be. Any tips? Thank you!

Can you post some examples of photos you're not pleased with?

My Canon 24-105L works great on both my 7D and the wifes' T1i. Double check your camera settings and shoot some more pictures then post a couple.

Without seeing a sample image it is all conjecture.

But both issues (over-exposed and "not as sharp as expected", missed DOF ?)
sound like improper settings by the camera operator not lens problems.

Outside chance the lens is back-focusing, but that is is not the first place I would be looking for a resolution.
