Re: Canon wide angle 'L' lenses - 16-35 and 17-40

I was in the same situation when I first starting wanted wide angle photos. The thing is, the price difference is quite huge. If you really need the max aperture of 2.8, then go for the 16-35. If you plan more on making landscape photos that don't need such a wide aperture, you can really go with the 17-40 without any hesitation. There have been some tests about the quality difference between the two lenses and it seems that at f/8 you just could not see a difference at all. So the answer really depends on what you want this lens to be used for!
