If you shoot landscape at f/11 or smaller then you do not need to upgrade as both lenses are near identical at that aperture. I know, I've had both and done a head to head with them.
If however you want to shoot things at f/4 then there really is no competition between them. The 17-40 is well known to be soft in the mids and corners wide open and doesn't really get sharp across the frame until f/11, which is great for landscapes but useless for anything else that you may want to be sharp across the frame.
The 16-35 f/4 on the other hand is superb wide open. Truly. At all focal ranges, making it an incredibly versatile lens. In fact, at f/4 there's not much in it between this and my primes at the same aperture in terms of sharpness, just marginally softer, but that's to be expected. Primes are primes for a reason. However, I'd be more than happy to use this lens instead of my primes if all I needed was f/4.
Landscape at at f/11 or smaller? Get the 17-40. It's just the job and nearly half the price (plenty of good 2nd hand copies on the auction site)
Landscape + everything else: Get this. It'll see you right for many years to come. Expect it to be 15-20 years before Canon attempt to update this beauty, and I've not even mentioned how useful the IS is for hand-held work...!
Focus speed and accuracy is extremely good, no hunting here! I'm yet to try proper tracking but I have complete confidence that it will perform very well.
build quality is also extremely good. This is quite a light lens (compared to the rest of my kit) It weighs 615g so it feels very light sand nimble. In comparison my other lenses are 815g and 1.5kg. The AF/MF and IS on/off switches operate nicely and feel well built. Zooming is quite a damped and stiff affair, something I quite like.
The hood isnt a simple twist lock either, its button release, mildly irritating if you're used to just twisting the hoods off and you must make sure not to just try and tear the thing off.. Still those twist locks wear and get sloppy, this button lock (which works like a latch) will mean that the hood will never really wear out.
I'm very pleased with this lens!
Very good image quality, having IS is useful, and is my staple for wide angle shots. Good build, weather sealed and a friendly 77mm filter thread.
One of canon’s better value L series lenses.
