Why I didn't upgrade my 17-35L

I had a Canon 17-35L for while. Aside from some bad CA, it was a pretty nice lens. In theory, the 16-35L should have been better because it used more low dispersion glass. (I don't recall if the 17-35L used any.) In practice, it appeared that some copies were better but that some were also really bad.

It's annoying for a $250 lens, but it's outrageous for a $1.5K lens.
