Re: I'd take a purple rimmed lens...

I'd take a purple striped "C" lens. I'm not interested in
"prestige" or "image" I agree that anyone atuned to such things
knows the merit of the 17-55. What I'd be looking for is an extra
notch of build quality. My brother was visting last week and
brought with him my 16-35 f/2.8 L which I perma-lent him when I got
my 17-55 f/2.8 IS. The 16-35 is simply a better built lens in
terms of the feel/heft, materials used, water sealing, etc. I love
my 17-55 but wish it felt like the 16-35....

If the 17-55 had a red stripe, nobody would mention build quality. I don't see the difference in build quality between my 17-55 f/2.8 IS and my 70-200 f/4 IS.
