To meet user demands for a fast EF-S zoom lens, Canon has specially designed a new 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 new 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.

Canon EF-S zoom lens is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite APS-C Lens I just bought this lens at a steep discount, and I absolutely love it. I am using it on a Canon SL2. In my opinion, this is the best lens that I have purchased for my Canon besides the 24 mm f/2.8. Yep!!! it's all in the aperture. Canon needs to release more lenses specifically for APS-C with this specification. Even though the full frame lenses will work, the crop factor totally multiplies the EF mount focal length and EF aperture for any given lens and the results will not be as expected. But with this lens, my expectations were high and I am not disappointed. There is beautiful color and dimension in my photographs. We need a couple more lenses like this one, EF-S, with longer focal lengths and straight f/2.8 at reasonable prices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens I lover the lens, which works great with my 77D. Canon should come out with a new lens soon and since this one has UD glass, call it what it should be L lens: who cares if it is APS-C. Canon needs to start allowing firmware updates on all new products going forward, this ensure ever changing feature set additions and being able to fix issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs as Promised The EF-S 17~55mm f/2.8 lens has proved to be everything I had hoped for when I chose it to supplant the EF-S 18~135 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM kit lens on my first Canon APS-C Camera. The large f2.8 aperture allows very good subject isolation and combines with an older version of Canon's image stabilization (IS) to provide low light utility. The shear mass of quality glass used in the wide and heavy EF-S 17~55mm suggests that image quality will be high - the EF-S 17~55mm validates that hinted promise of clarity and sharpness without noticeable chromatic aberration. I bought the EF-S 17~55mm in spite of reports that the lens sucks in dust like a mini-vacuum cleaner and that the older version of Canon's IS is prone to failure. After nearly two years of frequent use, including a few months of exposure to the rigors of sunny Southeast Asia, there is no dust and the IS is still on the job. In summary, with fingers crossed on the question of IS durability, I am more impressed by the EF-S 17~55mm f/2.8 IS USM than I was on the day the lens was delivered nearly two years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable and great quality I have used this lens for 3-4 years in extreme low light conditions on crop cameras and have been very very pleased. At f/2.8, it simply pulls light in. Performance and optics miles ahead of a kit lens. It has been rugged, too-- dropped it and only lost the filter. This is an ideal range for a crop camera and is my go-to lens for most indoor work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good lenses, terrible housing Definitely the best lens in the 17-50 range, as far as image quality is concerned.Unfortunately, being a videographer, build quality is crucial to me, so I had to give up on this lens after just a few days of use. The focus ring is small and not dumped (which is a pain when you focus manually and a "no go" when you use a follow focus) the zoom extends when pointing down, dust comes in extremely easily...In conclusion, despite its price, this lens is not meant to be use professionally.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great lens... while it lasts. Owned it for 6.5 years before it completely failed. Optical quality is impeccable, proven over and over again against other 'cheap' lenses.Although I took good care of it and used occasionally, dust became visible inside the lens after about 2 years. After 4-5 years IS started to play tricks and at 6.5 years the AF failed resulting in camera saying 'lens error'.The zoom mechanism is terrible, many times just by pointing the camera downwards would automatically zoom to max.I did recommend the lens to a friend who is more active than I am in using it, and his lens also broke after about 3 years.
