Hello the last time I was on this forum was in 2009. I sold my Canon 400D. I saved up all last year for a 60D but then got paid off from work. I was desperate for a camera so bought a 40D Instead without a lens. That's all I could afford. Been back in work since January on a low paid job. Only just bought a 17-55 mm kit lens off ebay. Hopefully now I can kick start my Hobby again.

Is it the 17-55 f/2.8, or the 18-55 f/3.5-5.6?

If the former, then you've got what has to be the best Canon lens for a crop sensor camera that Canon makes. You will be astounded by the results, as long as it and the camera are properly calibrated to each other (there are tests you can do to check that out, but I wouldn't bother with any of that unless you feel your images are "soft" despite your shutter speed being fast).

If the latter, then you've got a very good lens if it's the image stabilized version, and while it doesn't give you a lot of shallow depth of field capability, it'll reward you with excellent images if you do your part as the photographer.


Either way, welcome back to the world of photography. Your camera body is truly excellent for that.
