Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

Review Date: Feb 24, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $750.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: size, weight, color rendition, center sharpeness, corner sharpness from 5.6-8, FOV is so usefull and PRICE (for an L this is a bargain)
Cons:
corner sharpness wide open (a bit soft) not too bad in real life, just if you zoom in at 100%

I just bought this lens and on a 1.6x the FOV is great. It is a much better kit type lens with IQ that is much much better. On a FF it is amazingly wide at 17mm and still quite wide at 40mm. Great for landscapes and street photography. The build quality is typical of an L and the price is right. At f4 it isnt the fastest lens but paired with a 5D/2 at ISO 1600-3200 with or without a flash, this is a great lens even in poor light.

Highly recommended to complete a lens duo of 70-200, 50mm

Pros: Decent High ISO performence, 15.1mp, decent video options,
Cons:
1080p @ 20p SERIOUSLY (just a marketing gimmick), no weathersealing (cant expect it), small (too small)

I really like this camera, although the video option is a bit of a rip-off, this is essentially a 50D without gapless microlenses and superior build quality. For the price it is absolutely unbeatable. At 15.1 mpix, the high ISO performance is actually quite good, useable until ISO 3200.
