Nothing too exciting here. Just a pick of my old truck on my way home from work.

A crop of a shot of New Zealand's Southern Alps. We recently received our print-to-canvas edition of this a 4'x1' and it looks amazing.

One of the first shots taken after buying this lens today.

Some Canon gear. Some flash gear.. a little bit of magic.

I just picked up a copy of the 17-55mm today. I'm super excited. Only had about 20mins to play with it today. From what I could tell, I have a sharp copy :-)

I prefer Pachelbels lesser known work, Canon in L and the 99 cent menu club.

I just sold mine to get the 24-105, but that's because I couldn't use the 17-55 on my 1D.

If I only had 1.6x crops, I'd rather have the 17-55, because I have the 70-200 for longer stuff. I would take a hard look at the Sigma 17-50 as well though, for the value and quality (won't focus as fast though, if you shoot sports).

Really, you can't go wrong with either lens, and if you buy used, you can turn around and sell it for the other if you don't like it.

Long-time lurker, first time posting!

Took this shot yesterday at the railway station in Westport, Co Mayo, in the west of Ireland just after sunset.

Hand-held, ISO1600, 1/30 sec at 23mm f/4 on a 7D. The only PP is some small changes to levels and sharpening.

RE: Dust buildup in front element. I am pretty firmly in the"not using filters" camp, but my question is: would a filter help to minimize the dust buildup in this lens?

My Canon hood is pretty much glued to this thing, so it's not so much an issue of protecting the front element from physical damage, but buying a filter may be easier than opening the thing up to clean it every few months.

The second part of the question is, what is the popular opinion of what filter to get? My priority would be to minimize the effect on image quality as much as possible, while spending as little on the filter as possible.

Thanks for the input everyone!

Yes, filter would minimize dust getting in, especially under the front element.

B+W filter is what I use.
