I came from Olympus where the sensors were not up to scratch, but the lenses most definitely were & found myself fairly disappointed with the 17-40. For me softness is the issue.

I have a Tamron 28-75 2.8 which I prefer to the 17-40 where they overlap & I also have a Samyang 14mm which is much sharper than the wide end of the 17-40.

I hear really conflicting reports of the 17-40 - for me its a great lens. Not up to the best of the Oly lenses but generally pretty sharp except in the extreme corners, and even then still acceptable if stopped down.
