The 17-55DX: The Digital Lens

Forget that this lens was designed for your camera. Forget the f/2.8 aperture. Forget the MTF performance, the ED elements. Forget the weight, the size. Forget the Silent Wave focusing motor, the professional build.

This is the lens that delivers the images.

It excels as a travel lens, to capture the big views:

the small views:

and all the characters you meet along the way:

The lens is great for everything from lakescapes:

to bridgescapes:

to cityscapes:

and even stumpscapes:

It's good on the streets:

on the shore:

and in those quiet places:

The lens offers a great field of view, useful for interior spaces:

and architectural details:

The range makes it perfect for weddings, from the formals:

to the ceremony:

to the reception:

and especially nice for the group shots:

The lens loves flash:

And let's not forget the portraits, from the casual glance:

to the photo shoot:

and those somewhere in between:
