MR. Cheap here
I didnt want to pay the price for a 16-35. Found a 17-35 new condition and i got it for $650.00. If you can get one for a good price, go for it. You know my feelings on the zooms. I would love to get a 16-35 Version11 but dont want to spend the $$$ at this point. To me, Again, Mr. cheap, I dont think the clients could tell any difference in the corner softness of the 16-35 version 1. I think canon is like any other company, trying to figure out ways to make the company $$$ with these updates on the lens. Like i indicated, i cant imagine a client would be able to find any difference b/t the 2 lens.
