Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

ef17-40_4l_1_
Review Date: Nov 10, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: excellent colors and contrast. smooth operation, typically quick focus.
Cons:
sharpness occasionally disappoints

i originally bought it to allow wide angle shots on my dreb (and now on my 20d). i have been very pleased, and it has become my standard walk around lens.

recently had a chance to use both the 17-40 and the 16-35 on a 1dsII and saw _no_ noticable differences in the images they captured.

one often overlooked bonus is that this lens has a very short minimum focusing distance which allows an interesting perspective (at the 17mm end) and good closeups (at the 40mm end).

overall very pleased. definitely recommended.
