Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

ef17-40_4l_1_
Review Date: Jun 24, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $565.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharp, focuses well, looks as good as the photographs it produces.
Cons:
40mm is too short even with the 1.6 crop fractor and f/4 is too small for indoor-no-flash-photography.

The two lenses I'm actually proud of is this and my EF-S 10-22mm but having this lens cover half the range of the 10-22mm is making me consider selling it. Unfortunately I think the fun of the 10-22mm was at 10mm and I'm having a hard time letting go of it. Someday I want a 24-70L and I get the feeling that with the 10-22 and 24-70L I'll never use this 17-40L so even though I love it, it might this I should actually sell.
