2 Year Warranty

Combining exceptional optical performance with an extremely popular focal length range, the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM is a superbly built standard zoom lens that could easily find a home in any professional or amateur photographer’s kit. Nicely sized, this mid-weight lens is comfortable to carry and to handle. Combine that easy weight with a wide f/2.8 aperture and excellent 3-stop Image Stabilisation, and handholdability becomes a breeze. With its handy focal length range, you will find a million and one uses for this lens, from landscapes and portraits, to events and family days out. Of course, a useful focal length range is nothing without image quality. Luckily, the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM excels at both. Utilising L-series grade UD lens elements, a fast, accurate ring-type USM autofocus and a circular seven-blade aperture, this lens delivers razor sharp images, beautiful bokeh, and well controlled chromatic aberration, distortion and vignetting.

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 Stabilizer

The EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM features Canon’s 3-stop Image Stabilizer (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.
