Pros:
Cons:
soft @ 2.8 Unatractive blurry corners

I purchased this lens for wedding photography and to replace my 17-40L. I needed the extra stop. I have had 2 copies of this lens, sent the first back as it was so poor compared to my other L lenses in every aspect. Sharpness was very poor at all apertures, I couldnt use the lens at 2.8 it was so bad. Got my new copy and it was just the same! Even stopped down it is not comparable to any of my L's, my 17-40 outperforms this lens easily as far as wow factor and sharpness goes. Maybe my 17-40 is a grade A copy? My opinion is that this lens is very poor for such an expensive item, I would hate to think what the mark 1 version is like.
