>Hi guys, it' time for me to write another review of mine. This time I'll deal with one of the most famous Canon L-series lens: the 17-40 F/4 L.

The IS one is even better because of the stabilizer, but the optic scheme is the same.
Let's view it in the detail.
First, the body of this lens is white. Or should I say beije. Anyway, it's not the usual black. Every Canon L telephoto lens is white, and there's a reason: L lens all have a metal body, and if you use in a hot sunny day the lens itself could get scorching. Not only that, but chronic dilations and costrictions could cause problems with your lens. That's why Canon decided to make them white: bright colours have an albedo (reflective power) far greater than dark ones, and that limits overheating and connected...
