Re: vignetting

I don't think your comparison to $5 popcorn is a very good one. In the case of 17-55 you just pay more and get more. IS is worth at least $300 and f2.8 probably more. You get the 40-55mm and better IQ as bonus - maybe to compensate the fact it's an EF-S. However since you have 1.6x camera it's an irrelevent point. I think it's actually a real good deal for 1.6x camera owner.

Maybe I should not argue it this way. I just saw your reply to fstopjojo. Don't want you to blame me to make you poorer later.
