Review Date: Oct 28, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $380.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Sharp, good price, light weight. constant 2.8
Cons:
AF slow and noisy

I compared the Canon, 17-55 F/2.8 F17-40 F/4L and this one for a long time and decide to buy this one.

This one is much lighter than the 17-55 and sharper than 17-40. I am glad to buy this one because I think this is the perfect match for my 400D when I was traveling. Works ok on both landscape and portrait.

The only problem is the AF, it is a little slow and very noisy. Sometimes it makes me feel bad when I tried to take pictures in the museum and other quiet places.
