Assuming you have an APS-C sized sensor, the 17-55 gives a wider focal-length range, faster maximum aperture, image stabilisation and sharper results. No brainer really.

Canon won't put the L badge on any EF-S lenses, as they won't fit their professional bodies, but the 17-55 is excellent. The 17-40L is a great lens, but it's designed to be an ultrawide on full-frame bodies, so the thing they've worked hard to give - i.e. good quality at ultrawideangle - is wasted on a crop body. The 17-55 is made especially for them, as a fast everyday lens, and it's really good. Hope that helps.


Mark.
