Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

ef17-40_4l_1_
Review Date: Nov 15, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Compact and Light - Resistance to flare - Fast USM - sharpness - contrast
Cons:
Lens hood mount grinds away against the body and produces a black powder/dust, so does the 70-200mm F4L hood. Not really L finish quality as per the 400 F5.6 L

The first time I used this was in the studio on a 10d, previewing my first images I knew I was on to a good thing, its the kind of lens that creates images that put a smile on your face, you know the pin sharp results will blow everyone away. It is cheaper that the 16-35 for a few reasons and you can tell, but having said that, in the right hands this could give the F2.8 an even match.
