Professional photographers and advanced amateurs with APS-C size digital SLRs now have access to the fastest Canon EF-S zoom lens yet. Three-stop optical image stabilization along with three aspherical and two UD elements combine to make this new lens a must have item for owners of the EOS Digital SLRs.
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 add a new sense of space and perspective to your photography.
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.

Please Note: Compatible with EOS Digital SLRs only
Note: Hood: EW-83J (bayonet, petal form, two-claw removable hood; attachable in reverse)
