I found the perfect match
Borrowed the Canon 24-105 mm f/4L from a friend to test out. I figured that after testing all the other L-series "walk around" zooms (tried the 24-70 mm too, that's for another post), it was the only one left. Of course I loved it, and I think it's the best balance of image quality, range, size, weight, and price. So now I am kicking myself for not getting it bundled with the camera and saving some change! Oh well...
Found a pretty model in my apartment and went for a walk while the sun was setting with just the camera and the 24-105 lens. It's sharp wide open at f/4, and any fears about shooting at night with f/4 were laid to rest too. Sweet...I found my next lens!
