Canon 24-105 Version I

"Are there older versions on the Canon 24-105 f/4 that I need to worry about? I'm looking for the cheapest one I can find and want to be a aware of any bugs. My camera is an EOS 77D."

Thanks for your questions about comparison of Canon 24-105mm lens versions. I've been using two of the "old" version (2005) for years and have no complaints. You won't have any compatibility issues at all with your 77D-great camera, by the way.

The newer Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM Lens came out in 2016 and does have significant improvements (and a high price tag) that will work well with your 77D. Version II has less vignetting, reduced distortion and flare, as well as a 4-stop image stabilization.

Realize that the 77D is a "Crop sensor" camera and a 24-105 EF lens will have a comparable view to a 38-168 lens on a full frame camera. Curious if you considered an 18-135mm lens for your 77D. Very affordable and a wide zoom range.
