Canon EF17-40 MM 1:4.0 L USM Black:
The official marketing text of Canon EF17-40 MM 1:4.0 L USM Black as supplied by the manufacturer
A new and affordable L-series ultra-wide-angle zoom lens that's ideal for both film and digital SLRs. Superior optics are assured by the use of three aspherical lens elements, in addition to a Super UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) glass element. Optical coatings are optimized for use with digital cameras. This lens focuses as close as 11 inches (0.28 m), and offers both Canon's full-time manual focus and a powerful ring-type USM for fast and silent AF. It has a constant f/4 maximum aperture, and offers the choice of screw-in 77 mm filters or a holder in the rear of the lens for up to three gel filters. Finally, it offers weather-resistant construction similar to other high-end L-series lenses.

The Canon EF 17-40mm f/4 USM L is one of the most popular L class lenses thanks to its relatively affordable price and its dual purpose scope - it can serve as a standard zoom lens on APS-C DSLRs and its an ultra-wide zoom lens with an attractive ran...
