I recently purchased this lens and have become obsessed with the need for a WIDER lens... so I am in search of the 16-35mm instead.

Are any of you Canon users interested? If not... I will send it up to craigslist (and then to ebay)...

Let me know your interests, if you care...

Thanks.

rich for the cost of the 16-35 you can buy the 17-55mm f/2.8 IS so unless you are moving to a full frame i would buy the 17-55 instead. It tests sharper at all lengths other than 17mm.

just a thought.

the issue is that the 17-55 is EF-S... it will not be compat with my 5D mark II... full frame. longer. wider. more volume. it matters.

Your 5DMKII? Are you hiding something?

I think, Shawn, that like any other Child of Canon, Rich is just planning for the eventuality of getting the 5DMkII.

I sure as hell am.
