Hi Tomm

I agree with you on most of your points. I am also impressed of the low barrel distortion, espeacially compared to the 17-85.

The light falloff decreases when you stop down which I normally do with all lenses when shooting outside. And when it becomes a problem it is easylier fixed in PSCS than that corner softness I have from my 16-35.

NYC 17-55 F8.0 ISO 100 1/250sec @ 17mm

I have done a comparison between the 16-35, 17-85 and the new 17-55 here:
