Seems we don't get too many reports back when folks ask for lens advice. They just "disappear". I was back and forth over the 16-35, 17-40, and 24L. After some careful consideration and input from some fine folks, I decided to try the 16-35 with the thought that if I wasn't impressed, I would sell it for the 24L. My current thoughts are to keep it and if I find the need (see definition of lust) for the 24L, I will get it later. The 16-35 impresses me more and more. I am still figuring out how to focus a scene with such a wide and deep view, but it has brought me back to the roots of my photography enjoyment, and that is just getting out there and experimenting and playing around. So here is a big "props" to the 16-35mkII and its flare resistance......shot yesterday.....I left what little bit of flare there is so everyone can see it. Its small and would easily be fixed.

Nice shot. I've been debating selling my 17-40 and getting either the 24L or the 16-35.

nice shot !

Im confused however, why would someone consider 24L as a substitute for 16-35 ?
