Re: Wide angles? What's the deal?

I've had a love/hate relationship with the 17-40 and I've owned it twice and almost purchased it again today.  Some of my best shoots were taken with this and I prefer the pictures to the 15-85.  The 17-40 is so film like, so smooth but I eventually found the range too limiting.  It's awesome on a crop but not too sure if it's going to cut it on a FF.  So, today I picked up the 24F2.8IS in planning to go to FF.  If the come out with a new 17-40 II, I'll be all over it. Almost got the new 24-70F4 IS but the price was unjustifiable (line the 24IS is not )

Can't recommend it enough for the 7D or any crop camera but am not sure if it will be great on a new generation FF.  I know that the new 24F2.8IS will be. YMMV
