I haven't heard of the 16-35 being superior to the 17-40 IQ-wise, but then I haven't had a 17-40 and haven't looked into it!

I went for the 16-35 because I did want the f/2.8.

Hey Tony, I purchased the 17-40L specifically for my car club so that I can shoot car shows outdoors. This was the reason why I purchased it. Now that I'm shooting more events and some wedding work I sometimes want faster glass so its easier to balance the ambient with flash or stretch it an shoot higher ISO's and use available light only.

I often read reviews mentioning the 16-35L mk2 has better IQ than the 17-40L. Man if thats the case I almost find it hard to believe. I absolutely love the IQ I get from the 17-40L. For me I'm looking for faster glass for more available light shooting. I use the flash exposure alot too so f/4 on my full frames do a great job in documenting an event.

If I need a wide angle prime I love my 24L for real low light situations. The thing is if I'm using flash exposure as the main light f/2.8 zooms do a killer job at f/2.8 shallow dof for events work. f/4 is not to shabby either but I'm always demanding and love a little more faster glass on hand.

Yeah, people who have the 17-40 tend to really love it! In fact, the whole line of f/4 zooms has quite a "fan base" and I don't mean that in a bad way. My 24-105 f/4 IS is my favorite walkaround lens, and for a lot of other shooting as well -- I find that f/4 is a very usable wide aperture. I do have the 24-70 and it gets used for a lot of events and other "challenging" scenarios. But I can definitely understand people loving the 17-40!

In my humble little "mancave studios" f/4 lenses is not an issue since I'm shooting f/5.6 to f/11. The IQ I'm getting from my 24-70L (i know not f/4) is and unbelievable versatile studio lens.

The image quality from the 17-40L is very good. The colours I find with the 17-40L to be excellent. I hope to see my 16-35 II to have identical IQ but faster glass. Reading reviews some claims to get better IQ compared to the 17-40L. I'm not the sort to justify my purchases $$$ so hopefully I will enjoy faster glass with similar IQ to my f/4 lens.

Heh! There are, well, a gazillion books, articles, tutrials and such out there!

For starters, I'd encourage you to spend time in our Raw, Post Processing and Printing sub-forum:

https://photography-on-the.net …ay.php?s=&daysp​rune=&f=18

Take the time to read the stickies, and pay attention to the threads that get posted. You'd be amazed at things that come out in a thread when, for example, someone posts a shot and asks for advice/help on it!

Thanks, Tony. I agree... too many articles out there and its tough to pick which one is the the best of them all. I've read this sub-forum a couple times now but kinda hard to find what's the latest technique. However, I found one today that looks like a recent one for CS5. I will try and thanks for the help!

Got up for the sunrise in Hilton Head before New Years and snagged this one on my walk to the water.
