Judging by the success of the 24-105 being bought by not only FF users but also 1.6x users, a high quality 17-75 EF-S F/4.5 would have a reasonable market as a "walk around" lens.....it would be better if Canon could make it f/4, and I'm sure they could with some redesign.

However, the competition from the 17-85 and especially now the new 17-55 changes the landscape dramatically and makes it unlikely that Canon would even make such a lens.
