Our Take on the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens:

An optical image stabilizer built into this optic system helps to minimize the effects of camera shake. High-quality is achieved with 3 shutter speeds. This means that even if people are shooting from a car, each photo will be as detailed as possible. This functionality is often needed by videographers and journalists. With the new EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM model, photographers can also work in low light conditions by shooting at slower shutter speeds. Canon designers installed a ring-type ultrasonic motor (USM). This equipment with an internal focusing design and optimized focusing algorithms, provide fast, accurate and quiet operation.

The manufacturer has created a truly superior model that significantly reduces chromatic and spherical aberration, providing better clarity and sharpness throughout the zoom range. People who have taken at least one shot with a Canon EF-S 17-55mm f / 2.8 IS USM are unlikely to deny this fact. This new model is indispensable for photographing the following subjects:

  • Birds in flight, day sky, aircraft takeoff and landing
  • Various architectural structures from a distance
  • Colorful panoramas
  • Macro photography of animals and insects

The manufacturer has done everything possible to make these optics as efficient as possible. Super Spectra has been applied to individual elements to eliminate glare and ghosting for increased contrast when working in bright environments. This means that regardless of the intensity of lighting and other factors, your photos will always be rich and detailed. The rounded seven-blade diaphragm ensures maximum quality, which is considered the hallmark of most models of this brand. People should definitely buy this lens if they are looking for equipment for everyday use. If you order on our website, we will deliver the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM in just a few days.
