The Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens,offers you a fast fixed f/2.8 aperture, 3-stop Image Stabilization and a very useful focal length range.

The Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens will only mount on Canon EF-S bodies(they all feature a 1.6x FOVCF) the 17-55mm focal length range always eends up being about equal to a 27.2-88mm lens mounted on a full-frame Digital.

The Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM has a higher quality of construction than the typical kit lens, and improved image quality as well as a better set of features than the EF-S 18-55. What has been added?

** Ring USM

** 3 stop image stabilization.

It has also improved upon the normal 17-85 by offering a fixed f/2.8 aperture and L-Series grade Ultra-Low Dispersion glass lens elements to the mixture.

The price seems quite reasonable in comparison to the addition of these features, however the reduced focal range is one downside.
