That's the typical attitude on forums, when you ask a negative opinion the few that encountered an issue will happily explain you their problems and the majority of others will rarely type a message to say it is ok. Do you have a car? Search your car model and put problem keyword afterwards, you'll find tons on naysayers saying that your car model is bad, does this make your car worse?

Cheers,
Dan

How do you explain the naysayers?

I had never found my 17-55 soft at any focal length, I sold both the 16-85 and the 35 1.8 after having received the 17-55. You can find a quick comparison between the bokeh of the 17-55 and of the 35 1.8 here https://picasaweb.google.com/m/viewer#album/danm.cool/5585455828375722865

There are also a few pics with the 17-55 and the other lenses on my Flickr sets.
