To meet user demands for a fast EF-S zoom lens, Canon has specially designed a lens with a large aperture of f/2.8 for select Canon Digital SLR cameras. The large circular aperture produces a shallow depth-of-field, creating background blur that draws attention to the photographic subject.
The lens construction includes UD and aspherical elements, which deliver impressive image quality throughout the entire zoom range. Image Stabilizer lens groups shift to compensate for camera movement so that the image appears steady on the image plane, ensuring clear, crisp images, even in dim light.
With a Ring-type USM, inner focusing and innovative AF algorithms, this lens achieves autofocus quickly and quietly, and with full-time mechanical manual focusing, manually adjusting the focus is possible even in AF mode.
Bought this to replace my 18-55 kit lens. Good build quality and perfect walk-about lens.Published 1 month ago by Rashi Gadia
Wow. This lens is incredible. As good as, if not better than, some Canon L lenses I've used in the past.Published 4 months ago by oneill17
Having borrowed one of these lenses in the past I couldn't wait to my hands on my own, so very pleased with it. As an all rounder travelling lens it certainly does the job.Published 7 months ago by J. Knowles
I've captured some of the best images of my life using this lens on a Canon EOS 7D and a 70D. Sharp and vibrant with great depth of field. Read morePublished 10 months ago by R.D Carver
I recently rented this lens for a few days and used it to shoot (professionally) a wedding; about 75% of my shots were with the 17-55mm. Read morePublished 11 months ago by N. Gratton
Without buying something with a red ring and an L in it's name, you won't better this. IS works fantastically, focusing is silent and snappy. Read morePublished 12 months ago by B. Janes
I already have five L lenses which work with both my 7D and 5DMkIII so why buy an EFS lens that will only work with my crop sensor camera? Read morePublished 12 months ago by K. Williamson
Excellent lens, does what it is suppose to. Also great for automated modes. Worth the money, although would be nice not to pay extra for the hood which is in my opinion... Read morePublished 12 months ago by Jamie Mather
For anyone, as I was, wondering which lens to get for their crop sensor Canon camera (I have a 60D), then I can totally recommend the Canon 17-55mm. Read morePublished 14 months ago by OMorris
