Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

ef17-40_4l_1_
Review Date: Jan 5, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $600.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Quality of materials, full frame, nice colors, fast AF
Cons:
Little poor at 40mm , short focal.

I buy it because i work with digital and analogic canon SLR, so i prefer full frame so i can change from one to another camera. Before i had sigma 18-50 F2.8 , and exsist difference, the canon is more strong colors, very good at corner (except at 40mm very is only "good" ), fast AF, dust proof, sexy look, other side is short focal, only F4 (but i not need 2.8, for portrait i use 85 1.8). The price is very good for this L lens (is a true L lens), but 50$ i must spend only for UV filter... 77mm is so big.

At end i raccomanded it because i think together 17-55 2.8 r the best lens for dslr. Plus it work with FF

Pros: very light, incredible sharpness, perfect IS, L glass .
Cons:
Very noise (i call it "the coffee machine"), horrible hood.

My fisrt IS lens and it is great, very sharp, not like 85 1.8 but very near. Light enought so i bring it every time with me.
I did not love tele zoom, before it, but now i love it (also because is not so super tele). Good for portrait also if have not the soft outfocus of 85. Very good for candid. Negative side, the noise, like a coffee machine. But this is the price for IS, if i have light days i off it.

This is my second L glass, after 17-40, but this is more sharp. I use the lens in 20D and Eos3
