Pros: sharpness, speed, detail, f: 2.8, lightness

Cons: only serves to cameras with aps-c sensor, could be firmer in the front segment (fluctuates a bit when in 55mm)

Opinion: this is my lens of choice for travel photos, portraits, nocturnal, architecture, for any service. Mounted on my Canon EOS 50D produces a set of very high quality and performance. The only thing it lacks to be an L series lens is the red stripe, but also did not make sense to Canon to produce an EF-s series lens as a L series. In all the features it provides the lens-end to users of sensor APS-C.

Pros: sharpness, brightness, weight.

Cons: Maybe the fact that they don't update it...

Opinion: The usual premise that I would like to do is that I am not sufficiently experienced to make judgments but I feel I am exposing my impressions. I have owned for several months the 17-70 Sigma Contemporary but did not fully satisfy my needs of photography in rooms with little light and the MAF (like any Sigma that respects alas) sometimes did a little ' the cabbage that seemed to him. So, again, thanks to this mythical site (you would love Juza:D) I am documented on similar alternatives and I found this 17-55 Canon tempting. I trusted in the purchase of a used specimen Trovatao to Rce of Padua, which for now, after several shots, is giving me satisfaction! The only flaw of mine is that I find it "soft" in the sense that the zoom drops even with the force of gravity but otherwise I feel strongly to recommend it for those looking for something in the house Canon of this genre!

Pros: Stabilization, brightness, sharpness

Cons: Non-tropicalized, distortion at 17

Opinion: The diameter of the front lens from 77 mm brings more light from the lenses from 67 or 52, thus allowing the same diaphragm to gain 2/3 stop gains in low light conditions. Opening 2.8 for excellent portraits with nice bokeh. The Stabilizer helps a lot in the indoors and outdoors in low light conditions allowing good results when you are without tripod and flash. The Perfect zoom for travel and street photo. It is the best lens built by Canon for APS-C like sharpness and autofocus speed. Loses compared to the competition only on the price but the surrender you pay. Slight Distortion at 17 Ma for the focal one better than the 10-22. From the best between 35 and 50 mm. To avoid the dust just put a good UV filter Hoya, recommended extremely to protect the front lens.

Pros: AF USM, constant brightness, professional appearance:)

Cons: I would say the weight (but x a similar optics there), and the price (if taken used in excellent condition you save a 30-40%)

Opinion: After a thousand ideas and tests (Sigma 17-50 F/2.8, Canon 15-85 (really sharp), 18-135 STM, USM etc.), here I am finally reviewing the lens that I will keep to 99% on my EOS M50 with EF adapter (except the sea that I will use the 15-45, you never know:)) Well what about I finally found the lens that is for me, it will be cumbersome for a body of the M50, but I find it very well, indeed much better as a grip than with the 15-45 EF-M. Well now everyone knows this goal, has a constant brightness and sharpness from 20mm to 55mm decidedly good even at f/2.8 and more stabilized, as soon as you close a hair is really very sharp. I open a small parenthesis, I also had the Sigma 17-50 F/2.8 And there is no comparison logically with the canon, the canon also costs 3 times as much:(, the autofocus noise is disturbing and unusable x video (and do not want to make video with a constant f/2.8???), and less sharp de The canon both at the edges and at the center, I would say at least one stop. I thought I had found the perfect all do x me in 15-85, which I think is really good and sharp, has nothing to do with the 18-135 (as sharpness is like seeing with and without glasses), but then as soon as I arrived and tried the 17-55 I gave up having that length I n more than focal, but it was love at first sight. This lens is clear that you can not call it handyman vista its short excursion, but paired with a fixed luminous and a tele and you are in place x always!

Pros: AF USM, capillary sharpness, brightness, focal range

Cons: Chilly colours, tropicalization

Opinion: is the best standard zoom lens ever produced by Canon, fast, reliable, stabilised and amazingly sharp. On FF There is no fee, the 24-70 F4 is is much more modest and problematic, the 2.8 II has the same "stamp" but is not stabilized, was the reason for my return to APS-C! The flaws are in the lack of tropicalization (it's a professional canon zoom, it deserves the L) and the colest colors compared to the other canon. For those who say that it is a vacuum cleaner advice to have it cleaned every couple of years, we spend thousands of bodies and optics and then we lose ourselves for 4 pieces of maintenance to keep the stuff in order or to make it calibrate, however they are the second specimen and no problem of PO Lvere, in case I just put a filter. No home produces an equal, it's the definitive lens, it will sell you many close focal lenses.
