    One for sale on here, and a few on local craigslists just in my small area. Was up at a camera store the other day and one salesman just put his 16-35 up for sale too. All within the last few weeks. Something new coming out? :dunno:

    That would make sense I suppose. Though one guy told me he sold his 16-35 for a Tamron 17-50 and liked it much better especially with the money he saved.

    I have a 16 35 and don't think it's worth the $1300.

    well, if you're a faggot with a 1.6 crop body I imagine you could get a larger focal range with very similar quality for about 1/4 the price.

    But if you're a man and shoot with a 1D, then the 16-35 is bomb.

    If you gave me a 16-35 I probably wouldn't use it over the Tamron 17-50 (assuming all I had was a 1.6 body).

    If you gave me a 16-35 II however, I'd get rid of the Tamron.

    nothing wrong with the 17-40L... I quoted him talking about the 17-50 tamron crop lens. 1.6 Crop bodies suck balls.
