No, it's not ... but the overall build quality is still VERY good.

Already this lens is almost the same weight as the 24-105, so wrapping it up in metal is going to make it even heavier. [Probably too heavy!]

Now seriously, what percentage of shooters out there do you think actually NEED the weight/durability of a metal contruction? Not very many!

I've got absolutely no qualms about the build quality / durability of the 17-55. It's easily MORE than adequate for anything that I'll ever need to put it though!
