Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

ef17-40_4l_1_
Review Date: Oct 27, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Internal zooming, not heavy, not very expensive, good bokeh, very sharp.
Cons:
not f/2.8

I use this lens on a 30d, and I've had a LOT of keepers with this lens. even on a 1.6 cropped camera it is pretty wide, and has a decent range depending on what you are shooting. definitely some distortion at f/4 and 17mm.
Is this my favorite lens? No.
If I wanted a great L lens thats under 1,000 dollars would I buy this? YES. this lens is so worth the money if you can't afford a 16-35. It even has that extra 5mm reach.

Here is a sample shot Straight out of the camera, demonstrating the bokeh and sharpness of this lens. This picture was taken on a kind of dark, gray day.
