This lens is one of the best I ever owned.
Roblife
Function is smooth like L lenses are notorious for, and it is lightweight to travel with, and the 2.8 continuous aperture--well it is 2.8.
AllieW
It isn't as good as the newer Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L, but definitely performs outstandingly.

This is not just my favorite lens, it is one of the nicest things I own.
I love wide-angle photography, and the extra field-of-view I get with a 17mm wide-angle (over a more conventional 28mm) is dramatic. I took this on an extended vacation in Japan and found it to be the only lens I really needed for the entire trip (I also brought my 28-135 IS and my 50 mm f/1.4 but really needn't have). There is something about Japan that really cries out for a super-wide angle (small interiors for one thing). On a more recent trip to Spain I admit there were times I wish I had my 28-135 with me for a little more reach, but this 17-35mm is still my primary lens.
I think the optics on my 50mm 1.4 are noticably better than this lens, but I have become so accustomed to the 17mm view that I find a "normal" focal length practically useless.
There is marvelously little distortion in this lens at 17mm.
It is worth noting however that you will undoubtedly get shadows from even the thinnest filters (I have a very very thing polarizer filter that I use with this lens and even it will crop the image, the lens is so wide.) Also, when I use the built-in flash on my A2E the lens will cast a shadow in the image, which is annoying (a little hard to explain, but the point is that you see so much at 17mm that the lens itself blocks the flash). Someday I will get an external flash to avoid this problem.

Ah the Canon 17-35mm F/2.8L...a diamond in the rough if I have ever seen one! I stumbled across this at Keh's website a few weeks ago (04/2012), purchased it, and waited impatiently for it to arrive. Everything I had read and seen about and from this lens filled me with the belief that this was a good investment - I was not wrong. Allow me to go over some bullet points in the name of brevity - I will discuss several of them in detail after.

- The price of this lens makes it the second cheapest used L lens on Amazon (after the Canon 70-200mm f/4L)
- The optics are FANTASTIC.
- Build quality is not as good as more recent L lenses
- 17-35mm is an excellent focal range
- Doesn't focus as closely as the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L, the successor to the 17-35mm
- Some barrel distortion below 24mm (expected)
- Color and contrast are L quality, really fabulous
- Has the USM for quiet, quick and accurate focusing
- No Image Stabilization (IS), I don't count this against the lens
- Slightly smaller than the 16-35mm linked to above
- Lens hood is getting hard to find
- No weather-proofing as far as I know

BUILD
This lens is not as well built as modern L glass - back in the late 90's/early 00's, many consumers complained to Canon asking for better-built lenses but this lens had already been out for some time when the change came. That said, it is not poorly built and is still infinitely better than regular EF/EF-S.

I have compared this to several other wide angles, including the Tamron 17-35 2.8-4 (discontinued but still available), to the 16-35L (version I), and I consider this better than both. Arguably, the 16-35L II is the best Canon has done yet, but if you can find a copy in good condition (I did with a small amount of diligence), I consider the 17-35 a real keeper. Nice rendering of color and contrast, sharp center to near-edges, and without meaningful distortion. Function is smooth like L lenses are notorious for, and it is lightweight to travel with, and the 2.8 continuous aperture--well it is 2.8. Gotta love.

This lens is one of the best I ever owned. I create master portraits with this. See the example I have uploaded. This lens is good for events as well. The wide angle enables you to do close courtiers shooting. The lens is slow focusing but not very erratic on the focus once it finds it it locks on like a bull dog. Unlike some of the sigmas that get confused between 2 af points and go back and forth. This may be one of my most favorite lenses of all times. Almost never leaves my camera except when I need distance. Like 200 to 400 and above for wild life.

A wonderful piece of glass for capturing quality landscapes and interiors. Have take only a few images, but thus far very impressed with the sharpness and wide angle.
