Canon RF 24-105 f/4-7.1 IS STM

Beautiful images. I also use a cheap lens a lot, in my case the EF 24-105 F/3.5-5.6 STM which I really like. I was thinking of purchasing the RF that you have. What opinion do you have of your lens in terms of sharpness, contrast, distortion, etc? . Thank you so much.
 
This is a great little lens. I have a whole folder on flickr with photos from this little gem. I think I paid $200 direct from Canon during a sale. It travels with me now. Perfect match for my R6II. And it focuses close enough for down and dirty macro. Any distortion is fixed by software.

Here are a couple. Check out some others.

In terms of sharpness, I find it at least as sharp as my EF 24-105 L (mark I). Corners aren't perfect at 24mm, but more than good enough for me. From 28mm on I have no complaints. For the price and weight I think it's a fantastic lens. And as Ed said, with the Macro feature, it's a very versatile lens. If you focus on what you can do with it (and not what you can't do), you're going to have a lot of fun.

A few more from me.

I have this lens and really like it.

Pierre,
What part of Switzerland are you from? My mothers side of the family came from Berne and Zurich in the early 1700's, Kistler and others.

I'm from the French speaking part of Switzerland. The canton I live in, Valais, is where most of the highest mountains in the Alps are located, (with the notable exception of the Mont Blanc, which is a few kilometers away, in France).
A lot of Swiss people emigrated to the USA (and South America too) during the 18th and 19th century, either for religious reasons or because they were poor.

I think my ancestors fell into the poor bunch but not sure. They were millers and farmers for the most part
