Re: 24-105mm EF IS

You are correct, sir. Sorry, got my fingers typing before my brain was turned on!

The f-ratio is fixed. There that is better. It doesn't change, get slower, as you zoom.

The 17-40mm f4 does keep it's shape, length, as it zooms and I was thinking of it earlier.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!

These lenses also don't extend as they focus which some of the other lenses do. 

 

Technically, the 17-40 does extend and contract as it zooms it just does it inside the filter thread. So if you've got a filter on it looks like it's internal movement. The front element, however, does move. A nitpicky distinction to be sure.
