Good overview. The built difference is significant. I loved the 17-55/2.8IS but it has lens creep and my IS failed twice. For IQ, its more fair to compare 17-55/2.8L IS to 24-70/2.8L. I think the 24-70 IQ is better but I do miss the IS when I switched to FF and 24-70. The 100-400L IQ is not as good as 24-70 but is good for that range.

Interesting comment here - I have not noticed any zoom creep at all with my 17-55. It has been my "95% mounted" lens for the last 3+ years. In fact, I think the zoom ring is a bit too firm on mine. Perhaps I'll spray a little WD40 in there...

(and, no, I'm not stupid enough to try WD40 on a thousand dollar lens....)
