Canon 17-40 F4L and Canon 70-200 F4L IS USM

My wife recently got me 2 L-lenses that will help us provide quality photographs for our Studio 2716 clients.   I chose these lenses because they are the cheapest, sharpest, lightest and toughest L lenses of Canon to date.


The things that I considered why I bought the Canon 17-40 F4L are:
  •  It is the cheapest ultra-wide angle lens in Canon's lens lineup.
  •  Although it doesn't have IS (Image Stabilization), I don't think that it will be a major factor on my photo-shoots.
  •  It is an easy walk-around lens.  It is light yet it is weather sealed.
  •  I chose this over the Canon 10-22 because I plan to go full-frame (I hope my wife will not kill me, if she sees this...)
  • It minimizes flare or most of the time shots reflected with no flare when shooting directly to a light or sunlight.
 
 And the things I considered why I bought the Canon 70-200 F4L IS USM (Ultra-sonic Motor) are:
  • It is a little expensive over the Canon 70-200 F4L USM and a little less expensive over the Canon 70-200 F2.8 USM.   These two lenses doesn't have IS that I believe will be a major factor when shooting indoors with a telephoto.
  • It is lighter than the Canon 70-200 F2.8L USM and  Canon 70-200 F2.8L IS USM.   Its light-weight features can greatly contribute when doing a photo-op on events (birthdays, christenings, and weddings).
  • It has great image quality and sharper than the Canon 70-200 F2.8L USM.
  • It is a cheap L lens for its class.
  • Well built and weather sealed.

To all who are considering to buy their first L-lens, these two are really worth of your investment.
