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

Review Date: Sep 13, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,180.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Fast/Constant max aperture, IS, Weight/Balance, Excellent IQ
Cons:
Telescoping zoom movement, so-so build relative to price.

I've had this lens for nearly a month now and have immensely enjoyed using it. It has become my "walk-around" lens. This lens produces "L" quality images in my estimation. It's colors and contrast are excellent. It is also very sharp throughout its focal range, although a bit softer at the edges wide-open. The Image Stabilizer works very well, I've often been able to hand hold indoor shots at 1/10 and they turn out quite sharp and crisp. CA is very nicely controlled. Flaring has only been a small issue and I've largely been able to avoid it thusfar using the hood and a little discretion when shooting. I've read several reviews stating that this lens sucks dust pretty quickly, I've yet to find any dust in my copy luckily. I will say the build quality should be nicer for a lens with this price tag. All in all, this is one excellent peice of glass that produces very high quality images.
