Hi,

I have had this lens for two and a half years and can say it is the best possible standard zoom for an APS-C body. It is fully worth the money, mainly due to its optical performance.

.. Anyone who needs L-like build quality will simply buy an L lens. I'm looking at trading in my 17-55 for the 17-40L for just that reason...

I really can't understand above reasoning. I mean, 17-55 is better in any respect, except 17-40 is "built better". Speaking for me, not having IS and being only f/4, it is 17-40 not "worth the money" (especially for APS-C camera).
