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

l217_efs1755
Review Date: Jun 1, 2014 Recommend? no | Price paid: $600.00

 
Pros: sharp fast hopefully canon can repair this lemon
Cons:
colors - not so deep, kinda greenish yellow - seriously noticeable - when compared to other lenses used on the same gigs. contrast - a bit weak build quality - blah. el cheapo plastic - terrible feel and sounds like pebbles in a can.

loved it originally. then I started shooting with it.

feels simply terrible. when mated to my 60D, it makes me yearn for my hasselblad. as dustin hoffman was told in The Graduate - one word - Plastics.

then one day, at a gig, the AF just quit. actually, it still made LOTS of noise, it just quit focusing. not nice. especially when I was counting on it.

lens was babied - until it just crapped out. so, it's off to Canon - for repairs.

hopefully you get a better copy than mine.

... to be continued?
