The EF17-40mm f/4L USM is a lightweight ultra wide angle Canon EF zoom lens. It is especially well suited for use with digital EOS SLR cameras with a focal length conversion factor higher than 1.
  • Superb optical performance throughout the zoom ange.
  • Fastest AF speed within its class (same as the EF16-35 f/2.8L USM)
  • Highly dust and moisture resistant
  • 28cm minimum focusing distance at all focal lengths

Pros: supersharp, colors, contrast Cons: not for low light

This is a supersharp lens with perfect control of colors and contrast especially with modern DSLR cameras. Images taken with this lens almost does not need to be postprocessed. Very good L lens for the money.
