Description

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.

    productwiki

    The Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM is a fast zooming lens designed specifically for the Canon EOS 30D, 20D, 20Da, Digital Rebel XT and Digital Rebel. This lens has a large f/2.8 aperture, giving it increased light gathering abilities for distant targets. The aperture is circular and produces a shallow depth-of-field, naturally blurring the background and keeping the subject the focus of attention. The lens groups shift as the camera moves, creating a steady image even in low light conditions. Inner focusing allows the autofocus to be set without the need to adjust focus on the camera, and full-time manual allows for quick adjustments on the fly. Standard 77mm filters can use a screw-on attachment.
