EFS 17-55mm f2.8 IS

I mean WOW that lens is incapable of taking a soft shot. There is no lens for full frame that can match it. Sharp corner to corner wide open, constant f2.8, no focus issues, 4-stop IS, ETC.

135L

Since then I've really only been wowed by the 50L. This is coming from someone with a ton of L's in the case.

tamron 17-50 way back when...

I adored that lens when I had it, super sharp. I just had to have the 17-40 L so I sold the Tamron. I have always regretted selling it.

Probably the 24mm TS-E II. Exceptional in every way.

I don't think that's what he meant. Pretty sure he meant it because of the crop factor. The 16-35 really "wow"s on full frame...everyone who looks through the viewfinder of my 5D2 with the 16-35 attached gasps at how wide it is...you don't get that with the 7D. In fact, if I was shooting a cropper, I wouldn't have a 16-35 at all.
