Default Canon EF 17-35mm F/2.8L

I couldn't find a sample archive for this lens (I realize its a bit of an older lens, having two newer versions already out - 16-35 mkI & mkII), so I figured I would try to start one.
Anybody have pics from this lens?
I'll start with a shot from the Jays game last week, taken with this lens on my mkIII.

Sweet pic! I havent had a lot of fun with mine yet. Been way too busy at work. I got a used one from Adorama. Its 10 years old and rough around the edges and softer than I thought it would be, but I think I just have to get used to it. Looks sweet on your 5D. Im using 1D MKII right now.

Mike ES...

Thanks for starting a this up... here's my contribution:

At 17mm on a 1Ds MkI, Av=f/10, 1/320s, ISO=100, Exp. Comp=-2/3


I bought this lens from the used dept at Adorama in early 2006, and it's performed well for me. I thought it was wide on my 1D MkI, until last week... when I picked up a used 1Ds MkI.

Here's one from this last evening...

Photo was taken in RAW format and PP via Aperture... I boosted the colors a little. Thanks for looking!

Great shots guys!
I've had it almost half a year now...taken it to Peru, Mali, Senegal and Burkina Faso (through sea salt, desert sand, 90% humidity, and up to 4000ft altitude) and it worked great...even after I dropped it four feet onto a cement floor!

Very sharp lens from 20mm - 35mm at f/2.8.



I'd say this summarises the quality... (17 @ f/2.8 is about equal to the 18-55 wide open)
35 f/2.8 9/10
35 f/4 9/10
24 f/2.8 8/10
24 f/4 9/10
20 f/2.8 8/10
20 f/4 9/10
17 f/2.8 6/10
17 f/4 8/10
17 f/5.6 9/10

I'll end my thread spamming now!

Cool lens though (I know I missed a bit of the cloning -I'm a sports photographer, so not used to this cloning stuffs!)

One of these finally showed up in my mailbox today so hopefully I can help contribute to this thread a bit. Possibly even make a page 2!
