Best all around lens

by Cameta Camera customer on 8/30/2011

The optical quality of this lens is excellent. It allows you zoom from 17-55mm at a constant f2.8. Other zoom lenses will change the aperture but it can hold this constant as you zoom so it does not change your timing. The wide aperture makes it great for shooting parties indoors. For an all around lens that is used indoors and outdoors at close range this is tough to beat.

Product Overview

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.
