Don't be so sure...as for myself:
Not particularily interested in L-quality build...I think this is

FF compatibility...don't know when and if I'll move, so not
interested in paying for something now that I may or may not use in
the future (when there are likely to be more choices anyway).
Red paint...not a dime.
....and to be FF compatible this lens would have to be bigger and
heavier, losing the EF-S design advantages.
No thanks, I'll keep the extra $370 and my EF-S 17-55.

Me too. In fact, I'll even invest that $370 toward a 30D to carry alongside my 5D which gives me anothe backup body, a different FOV characteristic option with each lens I own, save the $300 toward a TC, and wind up with the 30D costing about $600 out-of-pocket.

Wow, the 17-55 is getting better and better all the time.
