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

Review Date: Dec 15, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,000.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Contrast is amazing, sharp wide open and throughout zoom range.
Cons:
Canon charges extra for lens hood.

Only sharper lens I own is my 300/4 non-IS. My 17-55 outperforms my 135L and 200/2.8L -- believe it or not. Contrast level is freaky. My old 17-40 was soft by comparison and has since been sold.

I'll have to keep a 1.6x camera just for this lens once I buy a FF, no question.
