Canon’s 24-105mm f/4L lens has become a staple amongst Canon users. Whether pro or hobbyist it’s the perfect balance between quality, versatility and price. Its successor, the 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM, though, seems to be having a few teething troubles. Imaging resource mentioned the service notice a couple of weeks ago. But it wasn’t corroborated by any other Canon sources, and was quickly removed from the Canon Philipines website
Canon USA have now announced that certain examples of this lens exhibit “an AF operation-related malfunction”. This isn’t quite a recall just yet, because Canon don’t seem to have come up with a viable solution to the problem. At the moment, they are making “preparations”, and as soon as they’re complete, they’ll tell owners what they need to do.
