An illuminating review of this lens is found in DAP, comparing it to the following lenses:

The Canon 17-40mm f/4L is a compromise between price (about $750) and quality. Prime (non zoom) lenses offer better results in this range, sometimes much better, and the 16-35mm f/2.8L II is generally superior optically as well.

However, the 17-40 offers an attractive combination of price, size and weight, and will make a fine lens on cameras that do not have full-frame sensors.


Per Canon.
