What flaws?

CA and slight softness on the edges, nothing critical though.

@ Skoov : Flaws ? What flaws ? :mrgreen: Nice picture Sir !
;)

Thanks a lot, the colours look better outside of a browser, need to improve my save for web skills. Only a bit of CA on the corners, and facing into the Sun, so being fussy.

I love the 17-40l, given the 16-35l is apparently only slightly improved in areas I struggle to see what alternatives there are on FF, aside from certain primes. And travelling a lot in bad weather, the weather sealing has been more than useful.

The 17-40 is a great versatile lens but would welcome a mark II version IMO. Mainly in edge performance and CA. Everything else is really nice about the lens, though. I dig the smooth as butter zoom ring :p

I really hope the patent that came out a few months back about the 16-40 f/4 was true, that would be perfect. Especially if they did better with edge performance.

Lucky, the CPL sort of acted like a ND filter so I could get a slow enough shutter speed to sufficiently blur the people out :)
