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

l217_efs1755
Review Date: Aug 6, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Range - Very sharp - Fast - IS is OK
Cons:
Bad, really bad build quality for the price (this glass deserves better housing), Dust sucker

Bought this lens in Bangkok after two days deciding between 17-55 and 17-40 4L while drinking good old Singha Wink
2.8 and IS convinced me, although 17-40 is soooo much better built.
My sample is quite sharp, but after only two days of using the lens I saw dust on front elements.
I think I'll just clean the lens myself and put b+w mrc UV filter as I'm almost 100% sure that dust is coming in where the screws are...
