About Canon 17-40mm

Save $70.37 when you buy this Canon 17-40mm . This Value Bundle comes with a Canon 17-40mm, Adorama Cleaning Kit, Tiffen 77mm UV Wide Angle Thin Filter and a Universal Lens Cap Tether and Shipping is free! .

An 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

Nice lens!

By

from Williamsport, PA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Used this lens to take a shot of the vendors (100+) from the balcony of a show. The picture was featured in the club's magazine, and people were able to pick themselves out quite easily. Does need a tripod.

Fantastic Little Lens

By

from Des Moines, IA

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.

Great landscape lens if you have the $$$

By

from Pittsburgh, PA  -  Photo Enthusiast

This was my first venture into Canon's "L" lenses. It's fantastic. There's a noticeable jump in quality (feel and image) from the other models. Weight is reasonable too. Didn't come with a hood or bag though :-/

Affordable high quality landscape lens

By

from Cincinnati, OH

I have owned this for 2 years now and I have loved every second of it. It was my first L series lens and was my only lens for a while. You just can't beat the quality at the price point. Focusing is silent and fast, build quality is great. It is a little soft wide open in the corners, but that is expected with an ultra wide lens. It can easily still be used wide open without loss of image quality. The distortion is well controlled and what remains can be corrected easily in LR. I think it has the perfect amount of distortion that can either be used as an advantage or corrected. One of the things that attracted me to the lens was the weight or how light it is. When you hike in the woods every ounce counts. Comparing it to the 16-35 it is significantly lighter. The close focusing distance has made the f/4 max aperture a non issues outdoors with depth of field. The extra stop could be helpful for wedding or indoor shooting. If you are doing outdoor shooting and want ultra wide angle this is a great lens.

Excellent lens, best value!

By

from Cleveland, OH  -  Semi-pro Photographer

The 17-40L is often noted for having soft edges/corners at wider apertures, and this is true. However, stop the lens down and performance is stellar. Color and contrast are incredible. I have used the 16-35 II, 14L II and third part options as well... The 17-40L remains my favorite. The 16-35 II offers nothing except for the f/2.8 over the 17-40 at double the cost. Having used multiple copies of each, I find the sharpness better on the 17-40 (and Canon's MTF charts agree), except for maybe extreme corners. The 14L II is a great lens, but 3x the cost and limited in use due to the fixed focal length. The 17-40L is still the best option for Canon users at this time.

Nice color and focus

By

from Illinois  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use this lens for shooting abandoned buildings, so I can more get the scope of the place I'm shooting. THe only thing to keep in mind is that this lens is an f4, so there are some speed and low light issues, but if you're using strobes then it's not a problem. Just be mindful of what you are going to use it for.

Great alternative to the 16-35mm

By

from Asheville, NC  -  Pro Photographer

This lens is a great budget alternative to Canon's 16-35mm, basically half the price. I'm not much of a wide-angle shooter, but when I need it, I'm glad to have this in my bag. I mainly use it for shooting architectural, so the relatively slow f/4 doesn't bother me.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
MELVIN S  Wanted a high quality constant aperture "L" wide angle, need the UV for lens protection and can't have too many cleaning kits. Don't use the lens cap leash, though.
Shopper  what is the difference between 8806A002 and 8806A002 A?
THOMAS Z  I tried looking for the difference and could not find any information.
Shopper  how much more field of view do I get with 17 mm vs 24 mm?
RAUL E  Quite a bit. The question is do you have a full frame or a cropped sensor. With a full frame sensor it makes a big change even though you might think that 24 is wide enough it isn't.
