This lens new is about $250 more than the 17-40 new. Would you guys say the extra 250 is worth it? I'm deciding between the two for my 6D. I'll mostly shoot landscapes, but occasionally will shoot interior shots for side jobs (spas, stores, restaurants, etc). So distortion matters. The less processing the better. ߘ

Yes yes and yes.

Especially for what you are going to use it for. It is razor sharp corner to corner. Well worth just $250.

Yes, I owned the 17-40 but sold it as the sharpness just wasn't there. The 16-35 I've used blew it out of the water so I'm saving up for one.

The IS alone worth the price difference. For your work in interiors this could be very handy!

I just order mine today!!! !I have the 17 to 40 and I really like it. I wanted the IS and hopefully better sharpness. A used 17 to 40 is one of the best L values.

I had the 17-40, sold it, and bought the 16-35 on sale. i ended up paying about $400 to upgrade.

IS is great when I am using it as the walk around/standard lens on my 1D4 (it feels like a low 20s to 50 zoom on the 1.3X crop).

But, I am not so sure the sharpness is a big enough issue alone if you are using it for landscapes, on a tripod, at f/8 or f/11.

On my 5D3, it certainly does look somewhat sharper in the corners, but it's not the major major difference many imply when compared to the 17-40.

My attempt at a 3 image stack. Log, rock, and underwater pebbles for focus and lights. Background water as another image for mid tones. Mountains and sunset for different focus and darker tones.

Now I can see a little bit of masking halo on the right side of the rock. I think I spent about 10 mins in PS on this. lol.

Looking forward to the upgrade. The main reason I bought it was for the IS.. I heard there was an improvment in lens flare.

I think I will miss the weight of the 17 to 40 *LOL*
