Please can anyone help me, im looking to get this lens but I'm undecided between this or the canon 24-105. The extra reach doesnt really benefit me.

Any suggestions, recomendations etc,

thanks

Well, if you like wideangle, the 17-40 L is a great lens. It's a standard lens on cropped sensor cameras, and a (ultra)wide to medium lens on full frame.

The 24-105 is a nice general purpose lens, but you might miss the 17mm coverage you can get with the 17-40 (and it's quite a difference).

If you dont need the extra reach of the 24-105mm, go for the 17-40mm.
The 17-40mm is a great lens. Here's a link from another forum on lenses gallery. I have some shots here using the 17-40mm on a 400D.

Also consider the 10-22mm, the 17-55mm F2.8 and the 24-70mm F2.8.
