Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

The Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM is a small, lightweight wide angle zoom lens. It is made specifically to be compatible with Canon Digital SLRs with an EF-S lens mount.

The minimum focal length of 17mm makes this lens a good choice if you are planning to photograph a lot of landscapes, architecture or interiors. The maximum focal length of 85mm is suitable for more general purpose photography.

Two features worth mentioning are image stabilisation and the ultrasonic motor (USM). Image stabilisation helps keep your photos as sharp as possible while the USM helps to ensure fast focusing.
