A standard zoom lens for wherever you want to go.
Delivering excellent optical performance in a compact, lightweight design, the EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM is a standard zoom lens you’ll want to carry everywhere you go. Designed to complement EF-S compatible Canon EOS bodies, this lens is solidly built, yet comfortable to carry and handle – and with its wide 5x zoom range and useful focal length range, you will find yourself reaching for it again and again. From landscapes and portraits, to events and family parties – this handy lens can do it all. While it may not be a macro lens, its maximum magnification of .2x makes it a great choice for smaller subjects too, such as plants, flowers and butterflies. A standard zoom lens needs to be able to deliver great image quality – and the EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM is more than up for the challenge. Making use of its 3-stop Image Stabilisation and Canon’s extremely fast, extremely accurate ring-type USM autofocus, you can create images that are beautifully sharp, with stunning colour and contrast.
CANON EF-S 17-85MM f/4-5.6 IS USM
Compact and lightweight standard zoom lens specifically for digital SLR's that accept EF-S lenses and uses optics designed to take advantage of the small image circle to give a 17-85mm (equivalent to a focal length of 27-136mm in 35mm format), 5x zoom ratio.
Light and Fast
The small size and low weight of the EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM makes it ideal for fast moving photography and travel.
Designed for Digital
Designed specifically for digital photography, the lens has specially shaped lens elements and Super Spectra coatings to suppress ghosting and flare.
Portrait photographers will enjoy working with the large aperture, which narrows depth of field and creates beautiful background blur.
