Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens

Equivalent to a 28-135mm lens, this new EF-S lens brings true wide-angle to tele coverage to EOS 20D and Digital Rebel shooters. It has Canon's Image Stabilization system, allowing safe hand-holding at speeds up to three stops slower than otherwise possible. And 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.Compatibility: EOS 50D, 40D, 30D, 20D, Rebel T1i, Rebel XSi, Rebel XS, Digital Rebel XTi, Digital Rebel XT, Digital Rebel onlyCompact, lightweight design with a 5x zoom ratio -- 28 to 135mm equivalentExcellent optical quality: Aspheric element with two Aspherical surfaces utilizedClose-focusing to 1.15 feet -- at 135mm, fills the frame with subject 3 x 4.4 inchesRing-type Ultrasonic motor for superior AF performance; allows full-time MFImage Stabilization extends the lens's usefulness in low-light levelsCircular aperture design -- natural highlights, even stopped down two stopsNon-rotating front element; lens length does not change during focusingEF-S lens mount -- exclusively for EOS 20D and Digital Rebel bodies
