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.

I needed a wide angle lens that would be a good fit for indoor and group shots for my 40D. After a lot of thinking I chose the EF-S 17-55 over many of the other expensive and heavier lenses every ounce counts especially over the course of a long day. EFS was the way to go, and the 17-55mm F2.8 was a perfect fit for what I was looking for.

A worthwhile upgrade

I wanted an alternative lens other than the one that came with my 30D kit. Looking at photographs, the ones with the wide angles always stand out to me. Instead of admiring others photographs I decided to purchase the Canon Zoom Super Wide Angle EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Autofocus Lens so that I was able to produce what I adoree. I live right near the ocean so pictures of the beach and sunrise come out beautifully.

This is the magnifying factor of a lens. Macro lenses will often be described by their “magnification factor”. A lens with a 1:1 magnification factor produces a projected image on the sensor which is the same as the subject.

Elements / Groups: 12/19
Elements / Groups:
The individual pieces of glass that form the overall optical construction. Most lenses have between four and eleven elements to bend the light rays to ensure a perfectly formed image appears on the light sensitive surface, such as a film or CCD. The elements are arranged in groups and may be seen in specification sheets as, for example, 6 elements in 4 groups. That configuration may have two single elements and the other four grouped in pairs.

Macro Magnification Factor: Auto / ISO 100 / 200 / 400 / 800 / 1600 / 3200
Macro Magnification Factor:
A lens with a 1:1 magnification factor produces a projected image on the sensor which is the same as the subject. A 1:1 magnification factor is usually considered the minimum for a lens to be described as a “macro” lens. Specialist macro lenses are often 1:3 or even 1:10 magnification factors, meaning that 1mm across the subject becomes 3mm or 10mm when projected onto the sensor, thus 3 or 10 times magnification.
