Answer:
Hi, Yes I've used it for landscape photography and it's amazing. It will fit any Canon EOS DSLR range, and probably film too. Though since your camera is not a full-frame sensor (like 5D or 1D) you'll have to multiply the focal length by 1.6. But it's still wide enough for landscape, as I also have a similar camera.

Answer:
If you got an 18-50mm kit lens with your camera it will give you some idea of what 17-40 will be like. I use this lens on both full frame and a smaller sensored camera like yours and it is absolutely fantastic on both but on the full frame it is essentially 'super-wide angle', on the 70d it is similar to 'standard wide… see more If you got an 18-50mm kit lens with your camera it will give you some idea of what 17-40 will be like. I use this lens on both full frame and a smaller sensored camera like yours and it is absolutely fantastic on both but on the full frame it is essentially 'super-wide angle', on the 70d it is similar to 'standard wide-angle' zoom. I cant recommend it highly enough from personal use on both cameras. see less

Answer:
Even on a crop sensor camera the 17-40's a little on the short side for classic portraiture, that's not to say it won't perform well but distortion will be prevalent with features exaggerated. It's also not that fast, so interior shots without flash will be more limited than with a 16-35 f/2.8 or similarly fast lens.

Depth of field wise, with it's maximum of f/4 aperture, you've limitless DOF at the wide end when focussing more than a couple of metres away. At the longer end DOF's still good enough to get away with shoddy focussing, but isn't great when trying for out-of-focus backgrounds. see less

Answer:
It depends what you need it for. Personally I use it at around 21mm for landscape because at that focal length it's one of the least distorting lenses I've ever seen. So much so that I don't have to correct stark horizons in software - as opposed to my 24-105 which is like a banana at 24mm when taking horizon shots - b… see more It depends what you need it for. Personally I use it at around 21mm for landscape because at that focal length it's one of the least distorting lenses I've ever seen. So much so that I don't have to correct stark horizons in software - as opposed to my 24-105 which is like a banana at 24mm when taking horizon shots - but of course, if you're not doing that then you won't notice it. The 24-105 is by far the most versatile of the two and a fantastic lens in it's own right. If I had to pick just one to take with me then it would be totally down to what I was going to do. Landscape: 17-40, walkabout / photos of people / general unknown subjects: 24-105. Horses for courses I guess. Having said all that, I used the 24-105 for years at the 24mm length for landscape and only had to correct distortion when it was noticeable - namely in horizon shots as previously mentioned, so if I had to pick just one lens to KEEP, it would probably be the 24-105. see less

Answer:
I don't think there is a difference other than price from different sellers. This is a fabulous lens and very sharp.

Answer:
The focal range of the lens is ideal for interior shots but the F4 aperture means you may be limited in terms of light.

Answer:
Yes it will. All EF lenses will fit all contemporary Canon DSLRs (unlike the EF-S lenses which only fit the APS-C cameras like the 1300D). And it will work very well too, as you will be using only the even better centre portion of an already very good full frame lens. Used one of these on a 600D for a while and it d… see more Yes it will. All EF lenses will fit all contemporary Canon DSLRs (unlike the EF-S lenses which only fit the APS-C cameras like the 1300D). And it will work very well too, as you will be using only the even better centre portion of an already very good full frame lens. Used one of these on a 600D for a while and it does a great job as long as you recognise its not very long and not particularly fast. Great image quality though. see less

Answer:
Yes Mr Worrall, the EOS 550d has the Canon EF lens mount which accepts all EF lenses. Thankyou for your enquiry.
