Lens Description

The Canon EF-S 17-55mm F/2.8 IS USM is a wide to short telephoto zoom designed for cameras with APS-C (1.6X) sensors. This bright constant-aperture zoom covers a 17mm to 55mm focal range.It provides the same field of view as a 27.2mm to 88mm lens on a Full-Frame camera. An optical Image Stabilization System built into the lens compensates for camera shake.

This zoom is capable of focusing down to 35cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.17X. The lens offers a Quick-Shift AF system which lets the user simply rotate the focus-ring to focus manually. A Super-Sonic motor inside the lens delivers very fast and relatively quiet AF.

This lens is only available for Canon EF. Follow this link to see all current compatible digital cameras: Canon EF mount cameras with APS-C (1.6X) or larger sensor.
