Hatch those are awesome!

There are bad copies of this lens. My first one was very soft, not a focusing problem just soft, soft to the point that I can say this was the worst lens I've ever used. Second and third were sharp, but not equally sharp across the frame - right side was much softer than the left side (this problem most likely would not be visible on 1.6x crop body, I shoot 1.3x). I almost gave up, finally decided to try one more from a different source - that did it; I got one that I'm completely happy with. Upgrading from 17-40L, I can say that they're equally sharp in the center with 16-35 II having better edge performance. Also 17-40 underexposed a little, where 16-35 II seems to be right on the money.

Many thanks! I really enjoyed the lens while I had it. It is so wide on the 5D! I just whish I would have shot more landscape shots while in Yellowstone. I'm so use to shooting everything as if I were taking a portrait. LOL All in all... I know I will own this lens. It has a lot to offer. Very sharp! It handles flare really well....and did I mention it is wide? LOL

A few more shots from Yellowstone...

Here is a shot from my base... this was the first day the lens arrived. You can see it is a little soft in the bottom corners.... but... nothing major IMO.

Great photographs guys!!

Im debating between this lens and some of the other Canon ultra wides. I have a 24-105 now, but seeing as how im using a 40D, im thnking something like 10-22 may be a better idea due to the crop factor.

I rented the lens for a trip to Yellowstone. So mad I rented it...now I want to buy one! LOL It is a fantastic lens IMO. It handled lens flare really well. Images were very sharp. I can't wait to own one. No filters used on the lens... just higher f/stops to deepen the blues in the skies. Shot with the 5D.
