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

l217_efs1755
Review Date: Jul 4, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: SUPER sharp and great colour, good range, IS, f/2.8, 77mm filters.
Cons:
No lens hood included.

I bought this lens as soon as it hit the stores, and I certainly haven't been disappointed with it yet.

It's amazingly sharp - even wide open at f/2.8 - and the addition of IS just puts the icing on the cake.

On an APS-C body, there isn't a single lens on the market that can match the complete package of the 17-55. Pair it up with an EF 70-200 f/2.8 IS and you've got yourself a near unbeatable two lens setup!
