Review Date: Mar 30, 2008 Recommend? | Price paid: Not Indicated

 
Pros: Sharp! Good Color! Very helpful IS
Cons:
Dust problem

I have this lens for 1.5 year already.
I like this lens more than any other lens.

But one thing really bad, dust keep going in....

so, one day, I disambled it and remove the dust by myself.

Hope it is useful for other owners too

Pros: very good color, very sharp, very helpful IS
Cons:
dust problem, little dark coner at 17mm f2.8

I am from Hong Kong.

I upgrade from 17-85 to this lens. This is a whole new world!

This lens is 10 times better than the 17-85, much sharper at same zoom and f number. And, color/contast is much better!

I love this lens!

Problem is: DUST! i found dust inside the lens at the 1st week after i took less than 100 pics....

But, anyway, i am using 30D, i need a lens that is start at 17mm, with F2.8 and IS..... there is no other choice.

I would keep using this lens for years until I upgrade to FF.
