Amazon has the 17-40 for $707.00 with free shipping. Not a bad price considering a refurb is $671.00 on Canon's site.

Yes. It went as low as $663 before Christmas.

What do you all think of the 17-40?
I got a refurb in August but haven't used it much.
The 70-200mm 2.8 II and the 24-105 spend pretty much all the time on my 5D2.
Do you guys agree with the Amazon reviews?

Thanks

For landscape shooting the 17-40 is almost always (80%) used. I love the sharpness and the wide angle on this lens.
