Consider this...

5) This lens is pretty expensive, considering that it doesn't do
full frame. The 17-40 goes for ~$700, so I think the 17-55 would
be a fair deal at ~$800 including the hood. Instead, it goes for
~$1100, and the hood is extra, which makes for a more painful value
proposition.

I'm currently leaning toward keeping the 17-40, but it's close,
and I'm vacillating by the hour.

B&H still has their May special on this lens. Combined with the $50 instant rebate the price is $875, not $1100!
