Canon 24-105mm L lens Paired with a 60D

What do you guys think about pairing the Canon 24-105mm L series lens and the 60D together?

    Howdy @Guido - In all honesty, you could pair the Canon 24-105mm L series lens with any Canon DSLR and you'd get outstanding results.

    The only "con" I can think of would be that the Canon 60D has an APS-C sensor, which means you'd have to multiply the focal length by 1.6x to get the "full frame" equivalent. So for example...

    - When mounted to the 60D, the "full frame" equivalent focal length would be 38-168mm.

    - When mounted to the 5D Mark III, the focal length would remain 24-105mm.

    The difference between 24mm and 38mm is quite substantial, especially when trying to capture wide sweeping landscapes. However, if you're most interested in shooting portraits, then the 38-168mm equivalent focal length would be perfect.

    Hope that all makes sense and happy shooting! :)
  • @liontamer - do you print your panopics? If so, what sort of width do you output to?
