17-85 like and don't like

Some things about the 17-85 lens

Like: 5X zoom range, tripod-aware IS, light weight, compact size, pseudo-macro focusing, optical quality, Ring USM manual focusing

Don't like: No weather sealing, Zoom Creep, variable and slow aperture at the long end of the zoom, no 77 mm filter thread, zoom mechanism not precise like manual focusing, tendency to accept lens flare, no red ring to feel good about
