    U dun shoot portait wif 16-35 due to distortion of wide angle, so no need f2.8 to blur background.
    The only time i think to shoot wide angle at f2.8 is at events wif poor lighting & yr flash can't throw light too far or in places where flash not allowed, like at some churches.

    However... I tempted by 17-55mm f2.8! Too bad Canon dun have tat range. Just buy tat lens is enuf already plus a Sigma 70-200 then no need anything else.
    12-24...tat range will not be for me as i'll not shoot landscape much

    Distortion control is better on the 17-40L as compared to 16-35.

    I add my 2 "L"s worth...

    so far from what I understand 17-40 and 70-200 maintains constantly good image quality @ wide open... others, the are slight degradation in contrast or quality.

    Was considering 16-35 2.8... but in the end go for 17-40 as I'm not using the 2.8 very often for my type of shoot where flashes are allowed.
