can't find it new and prices suggest it would be £1500 minimum.

Sorry - I do not photograph night skies.

Dale say 3-4 days delivery for £1,449. This is more than the UK price for the 14-24 so the 17-35 is not a regular stock line for a retailer.

If your main use is night skies you do not normally need AF for this.

The common user consensus seems to be the corners of the 17-35 are about 1 stop behind the 14-24 at wider apertures, and close to equal at f8-11.

Producing good quality photographs, or being good at sport or art, involves a little more than buying appropriate equipment. Practice, some learning and perhaps natural talent often play a bigger role than the equipment in your hands.
