17-40 too wide on 5D?

Is it just me or is this lens just too wide on the FF sensor?

It's nice to get so much into the frame, but all the stuff on the outter edges are just stretched so much. They don't look real.

I'm thinking of selling my 17-40 and getting a 24-105 as my widest lens, other than my fisheye (just for fun).

It was the same when I had my 20D and 10-20 sigma. Was cool at first, but then got fed up of the distortions on the edges.

Am I crazy or are there others that think like me?
