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

l217_efs1755
Review Date: Jul 11, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $930.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Near perfect zoom range, Silent focus/IS
Cons:
No distance markings, No IS with tripod mode, Overpriced

A great lens for closeup event work and portraiture.
Nice zoom and low aperture, although slightly lacking in build for the asking price. My zoom ring sticks(is not smooth) going from 28 to 17 [hopefully something that resolves with time and usage].

Would have liked to see more weather-proofing or a 2.5/2.2 max aperture at this price. Overall I am still very pleased with my 17-55.
