You will NOT be disappointed!
I know I won't! I'm just worried as some reviews I've read has some negative thoughts about it. Like the sharpness is not being consistent. Sometimes it would be sharp, sometimes it doesn't. So now I'm considering the 16-35 f/2.8L, 50 f/1.2L, and 70-200 f/2.8 combo instead.

I personally have bought my 17-40L 35L and 50L used from people and upon inspection and with image samples i haven't been disappointed.
Yea, I'll probably do that if I'm going to buy a used lens. Thank you!
