Canon EF-S 17-55mm f2.8 IS USM lens

With a constant f2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range and a 3-stop Image Stabiliser, the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM provides outstanding performance and framing flexibility in low light conditions

High performance wide angle zoom

With an effective focal length range of approximately 27-88mm (35 mm equivalent), the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM is a powerful lens that delivers remarkable image quality. The wide angle zoom allows you to capture more of every scene and adds a new sense of space and perspective to your photography.

Fixed aperture

The large f/2.8 aperture provides excellent results in low light conditions. The aperture remains constant through the full focal length range, allowing you to zoom from approximately 27-88mm (35 mm equivalent) without slowing shutter speed.

Pleasing background blur

A circular aperture provides a pleasing background blur when shooting with a wide aperture; ideal for creating a sense of depth and isolating your subject from the background.

Image Stabiliser

The EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM features Canon's 3-stop Image Stabiliser (IS). Ideal for handheld work, IS allows the use of shutter speeds up to 3 stops slower then normal with no perceptible increase in image blur. The IS function helps with low light conditions, fast paced scenes and shooting from moving vehicles.

Fast, quiet auto focus

A ring USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive responsive, near-silent high speed auto focus. Full time manual focus override is available without having to switch out of AF.

Super Spectra coatings

Optimised Super Spectra lens coatings and lens element shaping suppress flare and ghosting - more prone to occur with digital cameras due to reflection off the image sensor. Coatings also help achieve true colour balance and increase contrast for vivid high definition images.

Passes distance information to E-TTL II

The lens passes distance information back to the camera's E-TTL II flash system to ensure optimal flash metering in any shooting situation

Customer Reviews

By MarkM on 31st December 2018
"I've hesitated for years on buying this lens and I now wonder why! I've used it on my Canon 7D Mark II and finally I have a piece of glass that can keep up with the quality of the camera. Colours are bright and the focus is sharp. Obviously with the 2.8F stop, the lens is fantastic in low light conditions, and blurred backgrounds are very easily achieved, which can really make a difference to your photos. The build quality is excellent, as always, and it has a very robust feel. You should be aware this is a heavy lens - that isn't an issue for me, as I already have a heavy camera body and I find it a small price to pay for the quality of kit. However you do notice the additional weight when it's around your neck! Basically if you have been thinking about buying a 2.8 lens, just go for it - you won't be disappointed. Finally though, I feel that Canon should include a hood for the price, like most of their competitors do. I have reduced my review to 4 stars purely for this reason. "
