The EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USMLens from Canon
is a lightweight, compact all-purpose "standard" zoom lens with a focal
length equivalent to 27-136mm in the 35mm format. It is compatible with
DSLR cameras that use the APS-C format and provides a versatile set of
focal lengths from wide-angle to telephoto.
This lens features
Canon's optical Image Stabilization technology, providing up to a 3-stop
compensation for image blur caused by camera shake at slow shutter
speeds. A ring-type ultrasonic autofocus motor provides fast and
silent autofocus action and full-time manual focus is supported even
when in the AF mode.
Designed specifically for digital
photography, it has a 17 element, 12 group construction, including one
double-sided aspherical element for reduced aberrations and crisp, high
contrast corner-to-corner detail. Canon's specialized lens coatings
suppress ghosting and flare and an optional dedicated lens hood can
further reduce the incidence of flare. A rounded 6-blade aperture
provides pleasing out-of-focus backgrounds when shooting with a shallow
depth of field.
