Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

ef17-40_4l_1_
Review Date: Jun 5, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Extremely solid construction. Has dealed with rain and the rain of death (Roommate spilled soda on my camera...) and nothing bad has happened. Very sharp and great for landscapes. Price is amazing for the quality of the lense it is. About half the price of a 24-70/f2.8L and although they are used for different occasions, the 17-40/f4L is greatly used.
Cons:
F4 is isn't that exciting, but it works well for what it is.

Overall, great lense. My first L lense before I jumped on the 24-70/F2.8L. I would recommend it for anyone who has a Rebel XT/30D to the people who have the 5D. 17mm is great and you'll miss it if you ever do jump to the 24-70.
