How Good Is Canon’s EF 24-105 F/4 L IS USM So-Called “Kit” Lens?

I’ll never sell the Canon 24-105mm F/4 L IS lens. How come? See for yourself — the following 130 links will take you to photos taken with the 24-105. Yeah, it’s darn good, and it’s versatile, definitely a keeper.

Note: After clicking to display the photos, click again to enlarge the image and check the quality. (Parenthetically, it’s amazing how often photos are improved by tighter cropping.) Some of the links will undoubtedly have gone stale, but I think there will be more than enough evidence of the quality of the 24-105.
