Overview

The 17-55mm zoom range delivers outstanding flexibility, producing high-quality images for landscape, portrait and travel photography. The f/2.8 aperture remains constant throughout the full focal length range, so you can zoom without slowing the shutter speed. With fast focusing in Ultra-Sonic motor (USM) technology you can roam city streets and expansive scenery, capturing subjects without interruption. The 3-stop optical Image Stabilizer and wide aperture reduces camera shake, enabling hand-held photography in low-light conditions or night photography without using a flash.

Benefits

  • Versatile zoom range great for landscapes, portraits and travel
  • Zoom across the full focal length without slowing the shutter speed thanks to the fixed f/2.8 aperture
  • Enjoy quiet fast focusing with USM technology with full time manual focus override when needed
  • Optimal flash metering on all shoots as this lens passes distance information to the camera’s E-TTL II flash system
  • Avoid camera shake and shoot in low light without a flash using the 3-stop Optical Image Stabilizer technology
  • Reduce flare and ghosting with Super Spectra coatings on the lens
  • Smooth highlights from a 7-bladed aperture for a more natural look and feel to your images
  • Compatible with all Canon EOS DSLR cameras with an APS-C sensor and Canon EOS M series mirrorless cameras using the EF-EOS M Mount Adapter
