Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens Review
The Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens offers an attractive 5x zoom in a reasonably compact lens design with Image Stabilization. This lens is designed for EF-S mount cameras such as the Rebel series and will not mount on full frame cameras. Even if it could mount, the image circle is smaller than the sensor and you would get severe vignetting with this lens, not to mention the possiblity of damage to the lens rear element and/or the mirror due to the shorter clearance of the APS-C EF-S lenses.
- Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM - $599.99
