Product Details

Canon EF 17-40mm Ultra-Wide Zoom Camera Lens, Model 8806A002

A new and affordable L-series ultra-wide-angle zoom lens that's ideal for both film and digital SLRs. Superior optics are assured by the use of three Aspherical lens elements, in addition to a Super UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) glass element. Optical coatings are optimized for use with digital cameras. This lens focuses as close as 11 inches (0.28m), and offers both Canon's full-time manual focus and a powerful ring-type USM for fast and silent AF. It has a constant f/4 maximum aperture, and offers the choice of screw-in 77mm filters or a holder in the rear of the lens for up to three gel filters. Finally, it offers weather-resistant construction similar to other high-end L-series lenses.

        Comments about Canon EF 17-40mm Ultra-Wide Zoom Camera Lens:

        Love this lens. I needed a higher quality wide angle lens that the kit EF-S lens that came with my Crop camera as I knew I was going to go FF eventually. The kit was slow to focus and the images were just not that sharp. Once I put the 17-40 L on my cam body I knew I had the right lens. It has great image quality and focuses extremely quickly. The L build quality has stood up to one accidental drop with absolutely no issues aftwards. My only issue is the not great aperture of F4. I knew that going in and expected it, but one more stop would have made this the perfect lens. For the price, you just can not beat it.

            Comments about Canon EF 17-40mm Ultra-Wide Zoom Camera Lens:

            After reading an article about what lenses to carry I noticed a pattern regarding my shooting habits and the habits of the author, I am constantly pushing the wide side of my kit lens (18-55) when I had my crop frame for those get everyone in the picture or get the whole landscape shots. Recently moved to full frame and decided I'd pick up a 17-40 and use my 50mm nifty (1.8) to cover slightly tighter but shallow DOF. Can't say I'm unhappy with the lens. Slight distortion which I noticed even with my kit lens, simply put any zoom lens will give you some distortion of images which require post processing, but no complaints outside of the ordinary like another review recently posted. Definately a must have, you need your fast prime, your wide, maybe your regular zoom, and your telephoto something. Fits the bill without as large of a bill as the 16-35 2.8 variant. Cons: No IS at F4. At F4 even with my 5DIII, it could use it in low light, I can see where the 2.8 would be nice but I can't justify the price difference for it.

            Not that sharp

            By jim

            from NorCal

            Comments about Canon EF 17-40mm Ultra-Wide Zoom Camera Lens:

            I've had this lens for a few years and have used it on both crop and full frame bodies. I don't think the lens is that sharp. Maybe F/8 and 11? Wider is too soft, and narrower suffers from defraction. I find that people who like this lens are generally coming from kit zooms. I came from medium format primes and had higher expectations. Other than IQ, the lens is built quite well made and no complaints there. It does tend to vignette a bit on a FF body, but generally that's fixable.

                It is extremely fast in focusing. Beautiful colors, and super-sharp images. I use it for landscape photography and absolutely love it. It is relatively light weight and one to-go lens that I carry with me all the time.
