    ha ha.. Naka.. I was stucked with this question not long ago also..

    17-40mm is a sharp lens, sometimes sharper than 16-35 MK1. However, the distortion is a little bit on the high side, hence if you are shooting architecture shots for a living, then you cannot accept this... if you only shoot sunrise or sunset, then it is not much a problem.

    16-35mm MK2 is very sharp and distortion is also much improved from MK1. But, the price is sky high...

    I ended getting neither.. I brought the Sigma 12-24mm instead.

    Yes, Sigma 12-24mm is FF.
    Nikon and Tokina 12-24mm is not FF.

    err... if you use 17-40mm on a full frame body, yes.. you should be able to create some mood and special effect which will definately make the album more interesting. However, if you use it onto a x1.6factor body, then the effect is no so significant liao.

    If you intend to use 17-40mm on wedding , POSSIBLE... but it is a little dark ( need to push up the ISO and must have steady hands) , comparing to using 16-35mm. Considering when you are in a church or wedding dinner especially. F2.8 definately helps alot. 17-40mm is more suitable for outdoor landscapes where aperture is closed all the way down to get sharpness.

    Fren, 100% of my wedding shots taken using 17-40mm with MK3....It still works even in low light condition. All you need to do is to control the lighting output on the flash and manual setting on the camera.
