Had a 17-40L over a weekend to test, didnt like the "softness" in the corners plus horrible chromatic abberations.
Bought a 16-35II, had it over a year, never liked it.
Even at f8 too soft even for a A4 print.
Bought the Tokina 16-28: much better!
I had luck, because there should be some bad copies too.
So from my experience- a single one and so not representative for all- Tokina finally did it for me.
Ah yes, much cheaper, but this isnt interesting for me on the long run or IQ- wise.
