Re: secondhand 16-35 I vs new 17-40

Get the 16-35. There is little difference in weight, and the 16-35 has a stop advantage. The extra 1mm doesn't sound like much but is quite large.

The only advantage I know of is the 17-40 range is more useful on a cropped body but since you are FF go with the 16-35 if it's a good copy.

Pixel peeping will show that the 17-40 is a very fine lens and is comparable to the 16-35 in image quality.
