For Sale: Pre-Owned Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens

For sale is my favorite all-around lens, the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens. This lens is an extremely fast lens, with a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 across the focal length. It's also got IS (image stabilizer) that is able to provide an equivalent effect of a 3 f-stops gain in shutter speed for hand-held photography. I can hand hold this camera up to 1/5s w/o any camera shake. The lens has an extremely fast and near silent USM (ultrasonic) AF drive including full-time manual focusing. Because of this it does not  to rotate during focusing, making it ideal for using polarizers. Build quality is superb, probably 2nd only to L lenses.

Here is what the lens looks like. It's got a huge opening at 77mm

IMHO, this is the ideal all around lens, especially for travelling. At 17mm, this lens is ideal for wide landscape shots but can zoom in up to 55mm, the perfect portrait lens. Ideal if you only want to carry a single FAST lens for your landscapes, group shots, and portraits.

Photozone highly recommends this lens and says that this lens is clearly a level up from other Canon standard zooms. Read the full review here.

MSRP for this camera is about PhP45k-54k (USD1000-1200). I'm selling mine for PhP38k.(USD850)  As a bonus, I will include a 77mm UV filter, a 77mm circular polarizer and the Canon lens hood, all of which I currently use with this lens, for free.

This is a bargain and it's rare to find this lens at this price. Only reason I's selling is I'm upgrading to a full frame camera body.

You may contact me at for any inquiries, or you may leave a comment in this post as well. I will accept paypal payments for local and international buyers or cash on delivery for Metro Manila buyers.

Here are some of m images taken with this lens and my Canon EOS 350D.
