Canon EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM

l217_efs1755
Review Date: Oct 1, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,100.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Fast AF, constant fast f/2.8 aperture, great colors & contrast, SHARP.
Cons:
way overpriced, build quality, vignetting, a little short on the long end, EF-S only.

If this lens had the build quality of an L lens, it would be well worth the price. But it's not an L, although it's priced like one. Fantastic lens all round, but should have been a EF and L lens. That would make it almost perfect.

Review Date: Oct 1, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,400.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Great build quality, extremely sharp, speedy AF, IS, very light for such a lens, relatively inexpensive, zoom ring turn easily, i like the white color, constant max aperture.
Cons:
Too sharp, AF is way too fast, too solid. :D Just kidding, nothing wrong with this lens.



 
Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM

Review Date: Oct 1, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $450.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Solid build, good IQ, f/1.8, fast AF, great bokeh, lightweight
Cons:
None really. Could use IS if i had to pick.

This is a great lens. Sharp and fast, it is excellent for portraits. For the price, it's really hard to beat. Could benefit from IS, but then again, all lenses would and you know id doesn't have it when you buy it.
