Since it looks like you're shooting a T4i, does it HAVE to be an 'L' lens? If not, I'd submit the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 as an option to look into. The thing is ridiculously sharp and being able to go to 1.8 on the crop (same, effective light gathering as the f/2.8 zooms on FF) is REALLY nice.
I like the look that L give. The colors, contrast..etc. I have had other L's in the past and I just like them, it's my preference.
I only have a T4i for the time being. I traded in my 50D for it as I thought it would be a better option at the time. I never liked my 50D( my 30D was nicer )..but that is another story. I do like the T4i but I am spending more money on better optics before I upgrade. So hopefully early summer I can trade the T4i in and get a better, faster body.

How can a user unsatisfy with the efs 1755mm? I doubt u didnt satisfy with the build quality more than the optic?
U just like asking "should I back to 24-105mm because I could not happy with the sharpness of 24-70 f2.8"
That crazy @@"
I actually had major problems with my 2 copies of the 17-55 and outside build quality was not the issue. One was the Optics and the other was the mechanics on the inside. But I am not here to debate why I liked something or not. I have good reasons and I'll just leave it at that.
I am not saying it is a bad lens, and you shouldn't buy it. If you like it then great! Each lens affect people differently.
