I received a soft case for the 17-55, 105VR, and 35/1.4G. I have a hard case for a 28-70 that would probably be a good fit for the 17-55 but I haven't tried it out.

I'd appreciate it very much if you would please test it out and then let me know and the "CL" number on the case if it fits the 17-55mm.

Just tried the 17-55 in the CL-74 case. As expected, it's a little loose. There's a tiny amount of side to side play due to the smaller lens hood and some significant axial movement due to the shorter overall length. The side to side play is likely no issue and the axial play can easily be dealt with by adding some extra foam in the bottom. The foam inserts are easily removeable so you could put a piece underneath the factory inserts and it would look like a tailor-made case for the 17-55.

Thank you JJ951 for your effort and time testing it out and to everyone else who helped with tips and info.
