    the issue i am having with picking the Canon EF 17-35mm f/2.8L USM is that i am planing to go full frame in the future and some of the reviews talk about mushy corners.

    not sure how, the 17-40 easily beats it, plus longer range. 2.8 isn't that necessary on a UWA

    I've heard the 17-35 isn't as good as the 17-40

    I voted for the 17-40.
    It's the walk-around lens on my 1DmkII. Awesome :)

    with the mention of going full frame, as well as the added fact that 2.8 isn't really necessary on a UWA... i'd like to change my vote. :uh:
