Was it really necessary for a public statement…

It really doesn't snow that much in the UK.

17-55mm is certainly the best standard EF-s lens. Ive had mine for 4 years, I've moved to FF but kept hold of it as it was so good and hoping canon brings out a new APC camera to attach it to to replace the 40D I still have.

Surely if this was the case there would have been a lot of unhappy sports photographers at the winter olympics...

Lenses / Re: 16-35 II vs what?

Please don't take what you read on here and what you see in the charts as gospel.

As I put in another thread, I nearly didn't buy the 16-35mm II because of the reviews on Canon Rumors but I went ahead and bought one as I don't see another one coming any time soon. The old buy what you need now rather than waiting for what doesn't exist is good advice.

I nearly didn't buy it because of the poor reviews this site has given it. In practice I have been pleasantly surprised really great lens nice and sharp even at 2.8 at 16mm apart from the very very far corners. Unless I have an exceptional copy.

I haven't used the tokina myself, but it doesn't seem night and day in difference from reading reviews. Its also not as robust and that would worry me when using it professionally, neither is it weather sealed. But it does have slightly better IQ.

I have had it for a week and its right up there with my fav lenses!

I just bought one for £830.

Definitely worth the purchase! Goes to show charts and internet opinion are very different than real world practice. Glad I bought one as I don't see Canon bringing one out anytime soon.
