I bought my 1st Canon L lens. It is a 17-40L. UPS brought it the other day. The bad thing is I haven't even tried it out yet. Hopefully tonight.

Love mine. Pretty wide even on a crop body. I used both my 17-40 and my 24-105 at a wedding recently and was very pleased with the results!

Enjoy your bank account while you can. I'll give you a month before you decide to buy another L

Poor with fantastic glass. It's an ok lifestyle actually.

Was my first L lens. The second came few months afterwards and then some more...

I'm trying to break the addiction by buying Zeiss.

Call me crazy.

I drove 1 1/2 hours to pickup my first L from a forum member. Well worth the drive for an awesome lens.

Killer deal too.
