While a fantastic lens and a great buy ... the 17-40L just went to Ireland in trade for a Canon 10-22 ... parting is such sweet sorrow. I wish I had the $$ to have both, but with the 24-70 Sigma (awesome, btw) the 17-40 just didn't spend enough time on the 20D. I had bought a 10-20 Sigma and it rocked, but thought the 17-40 would make more images. Wrong. So I just traded the 17-40 away. Took some pics for the other party and just thought they looked good. (shot with the 35mm 1.8 )

I'll miss you "L". But only until the 10-22 arrives :)

Aww man, I feel for you. I exchanged a 10-22 for a 17-40, only because I was going full frame and couldn't take it with me, and I miss that lens A LOT.

This is slightly off-topic, but... Whose prime is that? I'm not aware of a Canon 35mm 1.8, I know there's a 2.0 and 1.4...

You'll regret it :) but the 10-22 is a equal trade so maybe you wont.

Thats my idea, get the 10-22 for my 350D. And then when the time comes to go full frame ill replace the 10-22 with the 17-40, or 16-35 if my budget permits :lol:

That is the whole idea! :)

The thing is, those who use the argument "what if I go full frame" are missing out on a great lens and what it can deliver in the meantime. Telling themselves "17-40 on crop camera is an ultrawide" is delusional. I have tested the 17-40 my 350D, and while its quality is outstanding, it's FOV is very ordinary.

I never expected to go full frame either, but when an opportunity like the one I had knocks, I don't say no. Neither is the 10-22's awesome work devalued by my crossgrade to a 17-40/5D combo. I still look at the keepers it took and go "wow".

Go for it.. you won't regret it, now or in future, irrespective of full frame. Wish I had mine back!!

I found my 17-40 was too much of an overlap with my 'regular' lens. When I have a 24-105 lens on the camera, it's only for the wider end. I found I used the 10-22 much more - if you need wide, then you NEED wide.

I think the image quality is pretty comparable. From a creative point of view, the 10-22 is a godsend.

I don't think the 17-40 was built for a crop camera, so it is less useful.

Like most have said the 10-22 is wonderful I have fantastic results with my copy. I never thought I would possibly use it as often as I do. But I have the need to build up my glass and the the next one will be the 100-400L and then 17-40L to fill the gap. For now my 10-22 and 28-135 does a great job.. In fact that 28-135 has shot two covers in a row now. Hmm that (non L- plastic cassed) lens must be doing something right. GEEZ! Canon doesn't have that many lenses so just get one of each and get it over with!
