New 17-40 4L or used 17-35 2.8L
Apr 22, 2006

Did a quick search, but did not find what I was looking for.

I have the possibility of picking up a used 17-35 2.8L lens (the older one not the 16-35) for about the same cost as a new 17-40 4L. The lens will be used on a 5D for a few shots at weddings. This will not be my main lens (that honour goes to the 24-70 2.8L).

I am looking for opinions on these lenses based on build, sharpness and performance (light falloff, vignetting, etc). I am not too concerned about the f4 vs f2.8 since I can compensate with higher ISO.

Your time is appreciated and your opinions are welcome.

Joe
