Specifications:
Highly portable lens with high optical performance and light weight of 12 oz. (340 g). A very practical ultra-wide-angle zoom. The large front lens group minimizes peripheral darkening, and the flare-blocking diaphragm minimizes flare. Also, with lens group 2 being the zoom group, distortion is corrected. Out-of-production.

Pros: Inexpensive for an "L" since you could almost only find it in 2nd hand departement; AF resonably fast (on D30); strongly built; outstanding image quality; constant apeature of f/2.8
Cons:
No USM; implies no simultaneous AF and MF; noise and slower AF; minor flare;

I get mine from the 2nd hand market since I have a need to fill the 18 - 49 mm gap. The price is good for at that time, it is about half the price of a EF17-35mm f/2.8 L USM and a quad of the new EF16-35mm f/2.8 L USM, which I cannot afford neither. The image quality and the built are good as expected.

Of course, when there is no USM, there are quite a few issues to cope with. Well, I find it is okay to me. Since the old EF17-35mm f/2.8 L USM, has dropped even further at the time of writing, may be the best logical choice if you cannot afford the new one.
