The UPS guy arrived here and delivered my brand new (used) 17-40L!

Some quick shots of the lens (please forgive the choppy cutting in #4).

I hate you guys. I mean, I REALLY hate you guys. I was okay with my kit lens and nifty fifty, but I really wanted to upgrade to something more durable. Now look what you've made me do! I bought an L!

...I want another one (*sniffle*) (70-200?). But I need to go shoot myself a duck...

Weathersealing, build, ability to use on a film body, and price.

Great choice, you will certainly be happy with it. It was a toss up for me between this and the 17-55 and the faster glass won me over. Enjoy!

Like I've always said, "if your first picture is of your new lens, not with your new lens you might be a camera geek".
