From DxOMark conslusion:

If high sharpness is your only objective when buying a lens, then the scores achieved by the Canon EF 24-105mm F4L IS USM might be a little discouraging. Looking on the bright side, however, Canon has improved sharpness in the periphery at all focal lengths. Even if that’s at the expense of some sharpness in the center. Whether that’s clearly better is open to debate.

Sure, we would have liked to see peak sharpness leap up, but then the price hasn’t sky-rocketed either. Optical performance is just one aspect of lens design. This update still feels like more than just a step in the right direction.

This is the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM lens test results. The price of the optic is $1,099. Check availability at B&H Photo | Amazon | Adorama camera stores.
