checkout 500px.com and search for 17-40mm you will be impressed with the quality people produce with this lens. if you intend to show stars in your landscape then you will need f2.8 lens like 16-35m. right now I use zeiss 21mm and from my test its much sharper than 17-40 but it lacks 17mm and weather sealing which might get handy .

I like mine - it's light and performing well compared to heavier 16-35LII. Here some hand held samples at wide end

I know this question has arisen before, but my search only returned results of arguments between the merits of the 17-40L vs the 16-35L. Simply put: Is the Canon 17-40L a worthy landscape lens if it's exclusively used for landscapes?

Thanks for your feedback!

I just re-purchased 17-40L again after selling my great 16-35LII I was using for 5 years. I could see immediate difference in low lights photography. Besides this 16-35LII is amazing or even too much or unreal on colors saturation. But I don't shot landscapes as much as before and can't keep it anymore, so 17-40L would be good for now, besides I could use my 24L if I need low lights Cool it came with new type of pinch cap

Mu suggestion if you have extra cash it is 16-35LII otherwise 17-40L, you would also need $ for filters in 82mm which extra expensive too. Especially usefull for landscapes 82mm CPL filter is about $100 more expensive in compare to 77mm for B+W.

Same area when the train coming back 10 days later (39mm)

and the whole time I had ZE21mm with me that's not used. MF prime does not work well with a moving train
