Canon’s 9517A002 EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Standard Zoom Lens is equivalent to a 28-135mm lens and brings true wide-angle to tele coverage to EOS 60D, EOS 7D and Digital Rebel cameras. It has Canon’s Image Stabilization system, allowing safe hand-holding at speeds up to three stops slower than otherwise possible. Of course, it’s optically optimized for digital SLRs. A ring-type USM means both fast and silent AF, as well as full-time manual focus when in the AF mode.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I suppose all have some merit. Numbers are facts. If there is measurable falloff in the corners or low numerical resolution at a particular part of the zoom range such reviews will show it. People's opinions can have merit too - but first you kind of need a review of the reviewer. Do they know their stuff? Are their needs and expectations similar to your own? Have they used it enough to really know the Len's strengths and weaknesses?
The final one -- using it yourself is in the end the best. This because numbers say little about pictures. No, really, they don't. Doubt that? Then look at the great photos taken when even the best lenses lacked the basic qualities demanded of the least expensive SLR lenses today. Do you say "gee, great pic but the lens sucks"? No. And some people who write a review have special needs that will have little impact on YOU. An architectural photographer for instance. Even a little curvature in a straight line will drive him crazy. But on your vacation photos of the mountains or the beaches you won't even notice that flaw.
Fall off ("vignetting") can be a big deal if its bad. But most falloff from a modern DSLR lenses can be corrected almost 100% with basic software. (And the same is true for linear distortion btw.)
So the best way to check out a lens is to use it yourself.
All of these points came to me (again) when I purchased this EF-S 17 -85mm lens. Measurable fall off? At some zoom settings its got gobs. Distortion? At wide setting ditto. Resolution? Good to middling. But for all that this lens for many photographers -- including serious ones -- would be a great addition to their kit.
BYW, I probably would be judged in that later, "serious", category myself. I've earned a good living as a photographer for over 40 years. My work has graced hundreds of articles, books, and more recently, web sites. And my "art" images have been displayed in a 'one man show' in an art-conscious community.
OK then, what does my use tell me about this lens?
1) It has a really useful zoom range that encompasses a wide range of shots.
2) It is light and relatively compact.
3) Its resolution may not look great when presented in numbers, but it does look great in the photos I've taken with it.
4) When quick processed with appropriate editing software (I use Lightroom) the falloff and linear distortion is approximately zero.
5) Being discontinued and replaced by a measurably better but MUCH more expensive lens in Canon's catalog one can be be gotten for a song and maybe, with some luck, just a half stanza. (I got one recently in like new condition -- box, caps and all -- for less than $350.
1) Very limited macro capability
2) Some reported mechanical problems.
Regarding the positives: Yes! A Steal! Go for it!
Regarding the negatives: It is a daily use lens that for many photographers will see 3 or 4 (or more) time on their camera than a more extreme type of lens. Thus problems will on that basis alone be more common. And any problem is more likely to be mentioned in a review than none just because that is human nature. (Which of your feet are you most likely to mention in a conversation, the one that hurts or the one that doesn't?)
Bottom line: Find one cheap. Buy it. Use it. Enjoy! And for that price if it does break have it fixed.
That's what I did and it works for me. :)

Strandurlaub und Familienfeiern benutzt und bin
damit rundum zufrieden und kann es nur weiterempfehlen
Cet objectif ne quitte pratiquement plus mon boîtier.
Une qualité optique irréprochable. Même dans des hautes sensibiltés (2500 iso) dans la grotte de Clamouse où les flash sont interdit j'ai pu faire de très beaux clichés. La stabilisation participe également pour beaucoup dans ces conditions de faible luminosité sans être très gourmande pour les batteries.
L'EF-S 17-85 mm f/4-5,6 IS USM couvre une plage de focales d'environ 27-136 mm en équivalent 24x36. Cela multplie les possibilités de cadrage et en fait un objectif polyvalent qui permet une exploitation dans un large éventail de situations de prise de vues.
Idéal pour le photo reportage.
