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

l217_efs1755
Review Date: Jun 15, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Focal length, f/2.8, image stabilizer, great sharpness even wide open and corner to corner, contrast and colour.
Cons:
"L" price, "L" quality lenses, but consumer grade build, pincushion distortion at the long end (35-55mm), flare and aperture ghosting if used without hood, hood not included.

It's really the ultimate APS-C lens: after getting this lens i'm not using anymore my 35L and my 50 1.4.
Highly recommended.
