The Unmentioned (under-appreciated?) 17-40mm & 17-35mm Lenses

Hello people, there are times where I’m called upon to help shoot weddings & family reunions and I’ve come to the conclusion that I need something wider than what my 24-70 can provide, especially for larger group photos.

I’ve been looking into 16-35mm lenses (f4 & 2.8); both are a bit out of my price range. In my research I ran across two other unmentioned lenses, well at least from what I see. The 17-35mm f2.8 & the 17-40mm f4 and they’re both significantly cheaper than the 16-35’s. Even here in DPRs forums I didn’t find much info so...

What are your experiences with these lenses? Is the $400-$1000 premium for the 16-35mm(s) worth it? Can you provide images?

I’d love to see what you’ve got.
