Re: 17-40mm f/4L vs 16-35mm f/2.8L

So I realized I responsed to the wrong thread before (sorry still very new to this forum)...

I have narrowed it down to these possible candidates...

  1. Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
  2. Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM
  3. Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM
  4. Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
  5. Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM FLD
  6. Any of the other mentioned lenses

By the way my budget is "about" 1000-1500$ so please don't offer top shelf lenses unless there is a great reason to invest in it... Thank you to everyone who has assisted me, I was very lost before finding this forum! You are all a huge help in the buying process of a new lens.

PS: If I get a cheaper lens like the Sigma I will be able to also afford a new canon flash or something else useful. What do you guys think I should do? I am currently leaning towards the Sigma and a new flash...
