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

EF17-85
Review Date: Apr 26, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $530.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Wonderful optics. IS works extremely well
Cons:
Price. No lens hood

Despite all the negative reviews, my experience with this lens has been wonderful. Yes, at 17mm, the pics are a little soft (but I borrowed the 17-40 and so was it at 17mm). Beginning at 24 and through 85mm, the pics are tack sharp.

I think folks have been too hard on this lens. The wide focal range makes it an ideal walk around lens which hardly comes off my camera!
