Smaller and lighter than lenses of similar specifications, the Canon EF-S 17-55mm F2.8 has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27-88mm and is compatible only with the EOS 30D, EOS 20D, EOS Digital Rebel XT and EOS Digital Rebel SLRs.

Specialist optics which is used in EF-S 17-55mm f2.8 IS such as UD glass and Aspherical elements help deliver exceptional clarity, sharpness, contrast and color accuracy.

To improve image clarity over the total image area, two Ultra-Low Dispersion glass (UD) elements are employed in Canon EF-S 17-55mm IS USM to eliminate secondary chromatic aberrations that otherwise reduce sharpness and introduce color fringing. To ensure crisp, high contrast from one corner of the frame to the other, two Aspherical Lens elements have been introduced in EF-S 17-55mm Lens to avoid spherical aberrations that can soften images, especially at wider apertures.

The EF-S 17-55mm Lens employs an almost perfectly circular barrel aperture, helping create attractive, even background blur.

The Canon EF-S 17-55mm USM motor employs ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive auto focus with speed and near-silent operation.
