I would have expected this result. My 17-55 is plenty sharp when shooting close subjects, but soft as butter in landscape shots. It really could do with a mk II.

The 17-55mm has inconsistent autofocus at longer distances, as documented in a long separate thread here at POTN. The shots are seriously out of focus at times, but sharp at other times.

Yes, we need a version II.

It's a really nice lens. I used it on my 60d and now it's used with the 80d. This is my favorite lens. But my 35 mm f2 is usm is really close to being my new favorite

I go back and forth on this lens due to the price. But it sure does produce some great images. But then I think I should get a lens I could use on both cameras.

Sigh..

So I decided to hang out here while deciding ;-)a

I found mine here in the classifieds and it was in perfect shape. 500 bucks.

Careful, the 17-55mm/2.8 has inconsistent AF when focused on distant subjects.

Robin, you may want to research the 17-55 for 'residual spherical aberration' before deciding. This lens has been reviewed to 'focus-shift' backward when: A.) focused very closely, AND B.) Stopped down to mid-range apertures. All lenses do both to some degree. The 17-55 can shift focus far enough to put your focused-on subject OOF at (guessing) f/4-f/8. I believe this is NOT a problem when focusing further than 3-4 feet, or when stopped down past f/8, where DOF covers the shift. See TDP's review here: http://www.the-digital-picture.com …8-IS-USM-Lens-Review.aspx (external link).

I've been shooting full frame and aps-c for a few years now. With the exception of the 18-55 STM, I don't own any ef-s glass. I am happy with that decision.

Despite the very valid reservations expressed above, and the regular annoyances that they cause me, I still love this lens. My 18-135 is more reliable on focus for landscape shots, but it doesn't deliver the vibrant colours of the 17-55. Used within its limitations the 17-55 is a great lens.

Picture editing is OK. CC always welcome.
