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

l217_efs1755
Review Date: Nov 6, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $940.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Excellent sharpness and color rendition; contrasty; constant f/2.8 coupled with IS; very usable range
Cons:
Heavy and bulky; potential for dust; not weather-sealed; expensive for EF-S

I use this with my 50D. It delivers an excellent IQ with sharpness that only L grade lenses can match. My copy is so sharp that I can only see a very marginal improvement in the IQ when stopped down. It is simply an amazing lens to be used with APS-C Canons. If you have one of the rebels, be sure to test it out in person before committing. Because this lens is so huge and heavy, it will look/feel/function unbalanced with the smaller rebel series bodies. Almost perfect with any of the xxD bodies or with the new 7D. All in all, highly recommended.
