Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

ef17-40_4l_1_
Review Date: Apr 23, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Solid build; Good price for an L quality lens; Fits well on a RebelXT; Manual focus; Very sharp with good contrast.
Cons:
Huge hood on a cropped camera

I find the 17-40L to be a great walk around lens on a cropped camera particularly for landscape photography. I don't see any noticeable softness at any f-stop or focal length in prints up to 8x10. AF silent and quick.

Would the 17-40L be better if it had with a wider zoom range and was a bit faster (2.8) - sure! But, for what it does, its a great lens!
