This Canon EF-S 17-55mm F2.8 IS USM Lens is a standard zoom with many great features such as its circular aperture which can deliver a wide f/2.8 throughout the zoom range as well as beautifully blurred out backgrounds.
This lens boasts responsive, fast and silent focusing thanks to its ring-type ultrasonic motor, while its 3-stop image stabilizer lets you confidently shoot at 3 stops slower from handheld or in low light conditions. Ghosting and flare will be suppressed by its Super Spectra lens coating which subsequently helps ensure true colour balance and high contrast.
For optimal flash metering this lens is capable of passing information back to your cameras E-TTL flash system. This APS-C lens is also compatible with full frame cameras, on which it will capture a focal equivalent of 27-88mm.
