Re: EF 17-40mm on Rebel XS

Due to this issue it seems that some folks have some trouble with dust with this lens (not dust-proof...).


I also agree that you go with the Efs 17-55, after many years this is still my favourite Lens.

The dust issue I believe is a thing of the past, I have one of the earlier versions and did have a lot of dust inside; I  stripped it down cleaned it myself, the fault lay with the front seal. This was borne out by the fact that since cleaning and re-seating the seal and fitting a UV filter, I've not had a speck of dust inside since!

If you ever go full frame in the future, the Efs 17-55 will still fetch good money on eBay!

Best of luck with your decision.
