We'll have to see if this updated WA zoom can make me sell my 17-35AFS.

And that is why I am not excited. Why would I give up a really good UWA zoom, with fixed aperture for a unit with variable aperture. If any thing you should have sold your 17-35 for the 16-35 f4.

Why would I trade it out for the 16-35/4? For nearly equivalent performance at a higher cost? Don't need VR for what I do with the 17-35 so the 16-35 is higher cost, lower weight, but longer. Not the best trade for me

But you would be thinking about trading out the 17-35 for this lens? Not sure I understand your logic on that, unless its a weight issue, or I didn't get the joke.
