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

EF17-85
Review Date: Aug 19, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Good range and nice weight.
Cons:
f5.6 max! but it would be heavy if it was fast.

I have shot with two of these and this second one I bought to have on the office rebel. I shot around for the day and found it to be excellent through the full range, This lens is a good copy IQ is awesome, except at 17mm wide open. If the f/stop is at 5.6 or smaller at any focal length its performance is great. Also, the lens barrel is not wiggley like others I have seen. Maybe that is the key, a loose barrel = poor IQ.
