    Take a look at the Tamron 17-50 2.8. When researching wide angles I found this lens highly recommended, second only to the Canon 17-55 2.8 IS which is over double the price. The Tamron doesn't have USM and the focus is a little noisy but it's an excellent lens for the price, a better choice than the 17-40 IMHO

    I have IS on my 100-400 (the only IS I own!) but I turn it off 99% of the time!!! Waste of money as far as I'm concerned! Just something else to break and cost an arm and a leg to repair!

    I am bout to spring for a new lens as well. Got a baby on the way and I have only "wildlife" lenses. I am looking at the 17-40 also, BUT and this may be something Justin may want to look at also - I like my 1.6 crop factor, and I do NOT see myself ever going full frame. I have been looking at that 60 mm 2.8 macro specifically for crop cameras and all the reviews are great for it. Good for both macro and portraits. I am almost about to "pull the trigger on this one. That 60 mm on the end of a crop camera gives 96 mm, which is still good for flowers and insects, and will autofocus w the extenders, if needed for macro.

    I took this about a week ago with my 70-200 f/4 NON IS.

    Sorry if it's kinda big.
