What would be the chances of me getting a 17-40 f/4L for my 50mm f/1.4 + Cash? Also, how much cash would I have to add, assuming both lenses are in 8/10-10/10 condition.

Most people already own a 50, but you could sell it outright and then just pay for a 17-40. They pop up all the time on POTN.

How much would it go for? Not a single scratch on it.

Also. Does it seem like a good move what I'm doing? I want wide angle, and quality, but I don't want to totally lose that ~50mm range.

I think you'll really miss having the extra 2 stops of light.

Three stops.

1.4/2.0/2.8/4.0/5.6/8.0/11.0/16.0 etc etc. The 17-40L isn't unreasonably slow, and it offers a much wider FL than the 50. Every lens is give and take.

I'll try shooting my 50 @ f/4 for the next week or so, and see if it bothers me. I don't remember having any problems with my 18-55..

Why bother? You won't have 50mm on the 17-40. Slower lenses are more challenging, because they force you to create a deeper composition -- if nothing else, you can learn a lot about shooting scenes stopped down, and if it doesn't work for you, sell it for what you paid. 17-40s are majestic, especially on film, which hides some of its flaws.

50mm is also about 2 shutter stops faster than 17mm because wides exhibit less camera shake.

Uuuuuugh. My 24-70 fund just evaporated, I need some dental work. Do.not.want.

Alas, that's okay. B&H was making me return and rebuy the 5D2 to get the double rebate anyways..
