Very impressed by it! After using the L for the week I had it, my 17-85 feels like a toy now. I love the constant f/4 and internal zoom, excellent features. This is definitely next on my list of "must own" lenses. If I end up going full frame, I can only imagine how much fun I could have with this.

Returning it was the hardest part :confused:

I'm still deciding between this lens and 16-35 MKII...

For the savings in money I don't think you could go wrong with the 17-40, unless you have to have the 2.8 stop. I'm very happy with mine.

The 17-40 F/4L is the last lens that I purchased and I love it. It stays on my camera most of the time. You cannot go wrong with it for sure.
