Canon EF-S 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM

EF17-85
Review Date: Jan 1, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 6 

 
Pros: Good Built quality, Good focal Range for day to day shooting
Cons:
not encountered yet

When I decided to buy EOS 400D (Rebel XTi), I had two options, one with 18-55 kit and another was 17-85 IS USM Kit.

17-85 lens really gives a nice range for general purpose and the IQ is also bad. I encountered some distortions at 17mm.

I think I'm getting what I have paid off. It's not an L series lens, so we cannot expect those qualities out here and I'm in a learning stage, so this is the perfect for those who are in this stage.

I recommend this lens for the beginners.
