A Truly Great Lens For The Money5 Posted by: from: Upper Marlboro, MD on The Canon 17mm-40mm Zoom lens is incredible. For the money, this lens meets all of my needs for covering corporate receptions, dinners, lunches and conferences. What I like about it over the 24mm-70mm and the 24mm-105mm lenses is that is is so much sharper. I try to avoid zooming back to 17mm unless it's a room shot. Staying between 24mm & 40mm and adjusting my distance to the subjects gives me minimum distortion at the edges and clean, crisp & colorful images that meet my client's requirements as well as my own. This was a great purchase.
