Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

Review Date: May 10, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $695.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Light, unobtrusive, good build quality.

I tend to shoot near the middle of the aperture range, so I have not seen evidence of edge softness as reported by a few others. I tend not to use this lens as much on my 5d as I did on my 10d, but when I need a super WA, I get excellent results. The lens hood is not terribly useful, given the wide field it has to cover, but when you need it, it's there.
