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

EF17-85
Review Date: Feb 26, 2006 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 5 

 
Pros: Zoom Range. IS. Decent Build. USM of course.
Cons:
All the problems associated with a consumer lens priced at under 500 bucks. Cost: 700. Dust made its way inside the lens in under six months

I'll keep this lens as a walk around. Which is its main function, of course. At this stage of the game it is worth more in my bag, than sold used or traded in on something better.

For the money, I could have purchased a 24mm 2.8 and a 50 1.4. or the 70-200mm F4 or many other lenses that would have been much more sensible purchases in retrospect.

Cheers

Tim
