Overall this is a very good lens. It is well specified and the combination of a 17mm minimum focal length a maximum aperture of f/2.8 is especially impressive. The zoom is fully compatible with Canon E-TTL II flashguns in respect of transferring distance information to help ensure optimal exposures.

Canon EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM is a superb lens, with fantastic image quality and overall characteristics. Build quality can be improved and the lens does not come with a lens hood or a soft case, which comes as a disappointment considering its high retail price.

It’s a valid point, but there’s still benefits to having a brighter lens with a digital SLR. First, the smaller focal ratio and circular aperture of the 17-55mm allows it to deliver shorter depths of fields with more pleasing bokehs than other EF-S lenses, making it ideal for portrait or dramatic...

    Relatively expensive, Construction not Canon L standard yet, Range shorter than cheaper EF-S 17-85mm, Lens hood and pouch are not included

If you want a high-quality Canon-brand mid-range zoom for your Canon small-sensor digital SLR, you have a choice between the Canon 17-55/2.8 and... nothing. Fortunately, this is a very high quality lens indeed, with a constant f/2.8 aperture and image-stabilization.

This digital-only, 27-88mm equivalent ($1,000, street) is a pro-caliber upgrade of Canon's popular 17-85mm amateur Image Stabilizer lens ($515, street). It has the hallmarks of Canon's professional, full-frame L-series (solid construction, aspheric elements, UD glass).

I use this lens to shoot car shows and family functions. Its a great walk around lens. I love the bokeh on it and it produces "L" type lens quality shots. It's a bit heavy so be prepared for a bit of an arm workout. Worth it though!

This lens was a replacement for my kit lens. I'm more than happy with the lower apeture, and achieving a great balance for both indooor and out.

    The lens is light, quiet, and is sharp. Very good lens for the price

    Auto focus is a bit slow

I've had this lens for 5 months now and I find it to be outstanding. My photo's are extremely sharp, vibrant and colorful. The focusing is fast, though not as quiet as an STM and works beautifully. I use this lens with the 70D and recently went on a trip to Jamaica ..

This lens is fast and sharp. It replaced a Tamron 17-50 DiII VC. Incredible difference especially in low light. The only thing I miss is the zoom lock, but I can live.

The only reason I selected 4 stars is the Filters are backordered and they do not have an ETA. This cost me money, more money, as I will not take out and use without the lens covered. PAST THAT. I love it. It is the fastest auto focus lens I have ever owned. Manual Focus is crisp and quick.

The optical quality of this lens is excellent. It allows you zoom from 17-55mm at a constant f2.8. Other zoom lenses will change the aperture but it can hold this constant as you zoom so it does not change your timing. The wide aperture makes it great for shooting parties indoors.

I purchased this lens to use with my 40D. It is the only lens I have right now. I did a lot of research before purchasing it as the price tag was rather steep. I can honestly say I have no regrets. This lens, due its wide angle and zoom, is a great all purpose lens.
