Canon EF 17-35mm f/2.8L USM

ef17_35_1_
Review Date: Jul 11, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $430.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: constant f2.8, L glass
Cons:
a little soft at wide appertures

The only reason I bought this lens is that I got a great price for it (430 dolars, used really good condition, no hood, no hardcase, just the lens).
It's my first L lens, and I really really like it.
I use it on a Digital Rebel - 300D instead of the kit lens, and I gat a much faster lens, and sharper (stopped down a couple of times).

Anyway, I've read a lot about the soft-focusing issue on the lens, and in my case it is little true, but I can live with it... I mean this isn't an incredibly sharp lens, but for me (non pro) its fine.

For the price paid, its great.

Pros: Price/Quality, DSLR, Image Quality
Cons:
Plastic

I love my Dreb.
I've had a few Canons before, in fact I still have the old FD-mount Canon FTb and the original EOS Rebel.
Well the 300D is incredibly much better than the original Rebel.
I take pictures mostly using M, and they turn out great (a lot of times).
The lens included in the kit is, for 50 bucks, quite good!
Specially the focal length is very useful (focusing isn't that bad, the biggest issue is that it's slow... too slow for me).
Anyway, this is my first digital camera and I'm having a great time with it.
