    Or as a compromise between both. But "legacy" implies left over from film,
    and these are not.

  2. On a full-frame dSLR, the 17-40 is (a) sharp at the corners* and (b)
    extremely useful as a tool for quality landscape photography**.

    "If you shoot wide angle, full frame
    photographs with Canon cameras stopped down at f/8 and beyond, the EF
    17-40mm f/4L lens is an outstanding lens. Contrast and sharpness are
    greatest at the wide end (20 and 24mm) of the zoom range and approach or
    exceed those of quality prime lenses."

    "Currently I use the Canon 17-40L f4, Canon 70-200 L f4 and Canon 50mm 1.8.
    The two first lenses are top quality L lenses, Canon's flagship series."
