Despite it's age I feel that the 17-40L is still a very good lens! It really depends on your priorities. It's corners are weak but I personally don't give a toss about the corners. It's colours and flare resistance are outstanding and it really is sharp enough ......especially because sharpness is also overplayed.

OK, but why would you buy one when the 16-35/4L doesn't cost all that much more and is a vastly superior performer? The IS alone is worth the price difference, never mind the optical superiority.
