Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS Lens Personal Review
I've been using the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS lens for about 2 years and have to say, it's the best all around lens i own. It's not TOO heavy, like my 70-200 L lens, and it has a great range. It is my most used lens.
When i only feel like taking my small holster camera bag, i take this lens.
The Image Stabilizer feature really makes this lens useful in low light situations and allows me to leave my tripod at home.
Fast 2.8 Lens
Nice Background Blur
Lighter than the 24-70 L lens
Wider Range than 24-70 L lens
Image Stabilizer is very effective
Not weather sealed
The zoom creeps out when the camera is pointed down.
does not come with a hood
