So any regrets guys? Do you ever wish u still had the 17-40?

Not in the slightest. This lens was a major part of resurrecting my interest in photography. If I could only own one EOS-compatible lens, this one would be it. :)

I sold my 16-35 II without any regrets as soon I got the ts-e 24 and never looked back.

Hmmm well it looks like you may have convinced me, will sell my 17-40 and 24-105 and still be well short of required funds...kinda doesn't make it seem worth it when u look at it like that lol

This post making me to think that i am really lucky, i didn't need to sacrifice any of my lenses to get this lens, in fact i sacrificed one lens to have money and i just add little more to afford this lens, the lens i sacrificed was 70-200 2.8IS mk1, but i can't think it is a sacrifice because i bought 70-200 mk2.

I hope to use this lens so i can feel it is worthy, i have many lenses now and doing less photography than before, i have to return back so i can still shoot amazing photos.

That was my case as well, and like you, I didn't take the decision lightly. Godspeed to you sir!

By the look of your gear list I don't think you have to sacrifice much in life :)

At first no. After a while I realised I wanted an ultra wide angle that I could take hiking (17-40 was my goto hiking lens previously) as setting up the tripod (sometimes I don't take one either) and shifting to get a wide FOV wasn't always ideal so ended up down the road of the Rokinon 14. However if im out taking landscape shots during the day I will use the 24 TSE 99.9% of the time. For night shots (not stars) I would use the TS-E or the 14 equally depending on what im doing and for night star shots its the 14mm

There were no regrets once I bought the 17 TS and 24 TS II. :)

Mine arrived late this afternoon. From the couple of quick snaps I've taken it looks really sharp (on a par with my 85mm f/1.2). Hoping to get some trial shots with it tomorrow if the weather is reasonable.
