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

EF17-85
Review Date: Jul 28, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Great focal range, IS, fast focus system. Ideal walkaroud lens. Good build quality.
Cons:
Little soft when wide open (17-30mm), no lens hood, price.

Pictures taken with the lens have good color and medium / good sharpness on most part of the image. However sharpness falls off noticeably at the corners and close to the edges of the frame. There is some purple fringing noticeable on backlit subjects, but it is minimal on my copy, certainly less so than on many current consumer point-and-shoot digicams.

Overall: Great walkaround lens for prosummer users as a single lens.
