I fyou want the best Lens get the Canon 24-70L, you can find them used near a grand all the time.

The 17-40 is a outdoor Landscape lens and the Tameron is er, well, not a Canon.


Why buy a Hopped-up-Engine and put a whimpy carburetor on it?

With wide angle lenses..?? Are you planning on being right in their faces??

Pick up a Canon 50mm f1.8 (great starter lens for shooting models)..and a Canon 85mm f1.8 which are both great for shooting models,..better than your zoom alternatives..

Well the 17-40 is really not the best range for shooting models. You need something that let's you have a little comfort distance and will give good compressing which usually beans telephoto. The 28-75 range at the end of the range will work okay since with the 1.6 factor it becomes a 45-120.
I use two Sigma lens for most of my work now days. A 18-125 and a 70-200 2.8 and I get great results with both. I've also used the Tamron 28-75 2.8 and it was very good, but when I got the Sigma 18-125, I sold the Tamron, since they were in the same range. I found I didn't need the extra speed.



The example is of Holley with the 70-200 Sigma 2.8

Cheers,
rfs

Most of the wedding photogs I know around here have dropped there canon 24-70L's for the tamron 28-75 2.8.

It woln't win prizes for zoom, but still a nice affordable piece of glass.

For wider focal length, I do like the 17-40L series, regardless of the F4, it's still nice glass. The 16-35L....eh, getting pricey when you consider what the 17-40 can do.
