Bryan Carnathan at The Digital Picture published the review of new Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM Lens saying “Lightweight, compact, plus very low priced is a formula for mediocre lens image quality at best.”

The Canon RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM Lens solidly fills the empty slot in the RF lens lineup. Those acquiring an affordable, compact, full-frame mirrorless interchangeable lens EOS R-series camera now have an equally affordable, small, and light general-purpose/standard zoom kit lens.
I sometimes carry a camera and lens with me when trail running to capture those images that just show up. The RF 24-105mm STM lens has been one of the best options I’ve found for that use. This lens provides a generous zoom range and high-performing 5-stop image stabilization in a package that measures only 3.02 x 3.5″ (76.6 x 88.8mm) and weighs only 13.9 oz (395g). The smooth, quiet STM AF system is especially welcomed for video use, and the 0.5x maximum magnification capability extends this lens’s versatility. The image quality produced by this lens is good.
