Review Date: Oct 21, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $565.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Light weight, good focus speed, great color and contrast.
Cons:
None at this time!

I picked this great copy off CL a few months ago and haven't been happier. I ended up switching from a 24-70L to the 17-35 and by doing so opened up more possibilities. The USM works great and the colors are nice. I was skeptical going for such an old lens, but it goes to show you, Canon makes a great product.

BTW I also used a 17-40L 4.0 (less that 2 years old) but I wasn't impressed. I tested the 17-35 against the 17-40 to be sure, and the 17-35 performed better, so I kept it.

I should also mention the 17-35 is a good walk around lens.
