Canon EF-S 17-55mm F/2.8 IS USM Wide Angle Zoom Lens CANON AUTHORIZED USA DEALER

Not Available.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
Attention Valuable customers, please note we sell Canon USA Warrantied lenses. Absolutely no gray market or off brand warranty!!!

The EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM offers image quality on a par with Canon's highly regarded L-series lenses. It has a large maximum aperture which, combined with higher shutter speeds can minimize subject motion blur. Shallow depth-of-field separation of a subject from its background is much easier to achieve and the f/2.8 maximum aperture allows a bright finder and extremely precise focusing with f/2.8 compatible AF sensors.

The internal stabilization has a sharpness benefit equivalent to a three-stop faster shutter speed, making this lens outstanding in low light situations. Smaller and lighter than lenses of similar specifications, the EF-S 17-55 mm f/2.8 IS USM lens has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27-88mm.

 NOTE: This is an "EF-S" Series Lens and is compatible only with Digital SLR's that accept EF-S lenses like the EOS Digital Rebel , Digital Rebel XT, Digital Rebel XTi, Digital Rebel XSi, EOS 20D, EOS 30D, EOS40D and similar.

5 out of 5 stars   Lens lives up to its reputation.
By Mike (Knoxville, TN) November 10, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF-S 17-55mm F/2.8 IS USM Wide Angle Zoom Lens CANON AUTHORIZED USA DEALER (CN1755IS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Consistent Output
Cons:
Other Comments: I've been using a Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 lens for a number of years but really wanted a lens that focused faster and more accurately, especially in low light. I've considered the Canon 17-55 f/2.8 for a long time but the higher price was holding me back. I finally decided to make the move and I am really happy with this lens. I shoot dance performances and the low light and fast movement is a real challenge. I used the 17-55 for three performances and was amazed at its ability to focus quickly and in low light. It outperformed my 85 f/1.8 on focus accuracy and I wasn't expecting that! It's a great lens and I am looking forward to using it a lot.

5 out of 5 stars   A National Parks must
By JBRetired (Pensacola, FL) November 05, 2011
Review submitted for Canon EF-S 17-55mm F/2.8 IS USM Wide Angle Zoom Lens CANON AUTHORIZED USA DEALER (CN1755IS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction, Easily Interchangeable, Durable
Cons:
Other Comments: I bought the lens to capture the inspirational sights of the Grand Canyon, Bryce, and Zion. It did what I wanted. The only thing I might change - I probably should have gone to a lens that had a greater zoom, since it was not able to get close to wildlife. Still, the photos I got using this lens were beautiful.
