I have the 16-35, but i was wondering if there was much difference between the 2? or just go with the 24-70.

The main difference between the 16-35 and the 17-40 is one stop. Personally, I don't need an UWA fast lens very often so the nearly $1000 lower price of the 17-40 is attractive in the range.

The 24-70 is a different range entirely. I'm not really sure what you are asking?

For me, money saved by buying the 17-40 over the 16-35 went to more lighting equipment :D

well he said he HAS the 16-35.... why get redundant range and slower? (17-40)

a 24-70 would be a NICE compliment to the 16-35 he has.
