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

l217_efs1755
Review Date: Mar 21, 2009 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 1 

 
Pros: None
Cons:
Expensive, no barrel lock, feels like a cheap plastic toy, dust, canot be used on all bodies, cannot manage to focus track ANYTHING under ANY conditions, no hood, constantly searches for focus in low light.

I cannot honestly say a single positive thing about this lens. I've tried 3 of these and they're all very poor examples of Canon workmanship. I'd just buy the 16-35 f/2.8 or a used 17-35 f/2-8 for a fraction of the cost of this lens. I've never given anything a negative review but I wanted to warn anyone interested in buying this lens that there are better alternatives on the market. I'd sooner buy a Soligar, Vivitar or cheapo Quantaray lens then spend money on this thing again.
