EF17-85
Review Date: Jan 28, 2006 Recommend? no | Price paid: $475.00 | Rating: 5 

 
Pros: IS, Range,
Cons:
Build, Barrel Distortion, Soft, Contrast

I understand this lens is not an "L" series so I wont compare it to one. The build is horrible for a 500 dollar lens, so it everything about the images that this lens creates. lens should be 375-400 dollars, then I would be a nice purchase. Lens is just useless anything close to 17mm Barrel Distortion is just monumental. I have since upgraded to a 17-40L and couldn’t be happier...Please do yourself a favor and buy a better lens... Cheaper or more expensive or in the same price range, just not this one…
