Canon EF-S 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM

EF17-85
Review Date: Jan 11, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $599.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Perfect walk around lens at a low weight and reasonably good image quality. Great for snapshots or travel/vacations.
Cons:
Critical sharpness isn't there but that is what primes are for anyway.

For what this lens is, a walk around digital version of the 28-135, it is a great lens. It is on my 20D most of the time when it is just laying around or in the bag. Great for a multitude of images and unless you are printing over 8x10 you won't see much difference between this and primes. Does exhibit a good amount of CA in extreme lighting.

 
Canon EOS 20D

20d
Review Date: Sep 28, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,599.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Small size, instant start-up, 5 FPS, 8 mg sensor, increased buffer, rigid build
Cons:
Smaller RAW buffer...but it doesn't bother me

I love this camera...it reminds me of my former EOS 3 both in responsiveness, build, and general pro level features. I have owned an EOS 3, 7, 50e, D30 and 10D and this is by far the best camera I have owned. While this camera is not perfect for everyone (what camera is) it is for me and I LOVE it. Just added the 17-85 IS EF-S lens and it is great.
