If it's as sharp as the 17-55, I'm in! A great range and 2.8 on top of that.

The first time I saw the news I thought it was going to be a new L lens, but being an EF-S does not interest me at all.

1. It will easily retail for $1,200. Maybe closer to $1,600.
2. I hope this will cause the current 17-55mm to drop in price.

L designator has nothing to do with that, the build quality does. It doesn't bug some and is a huge deal stopper for others, myself included. The topic was beaten to death already, no point to reiterate through this here again.

The IQ of the 17-55mm 2.8 is L and then some. The build really is lousy. I hope Canon addressed the dust issue in designing the new lens.

WHo cares if its an L :S its build and capability that interests me... f2.8 at 15mm, IS will be improved to the 4 stop IS system. Also i have the 15-85, and the build is really nice and solid, the only thing it lacks is weather sealing.

Again would be really nice if the 15-60mm has it!

I have had the 17-55 2.8 since it was first available, I have been very fortunate I guess, I have not had any problems with internal dust. Used in dusty environment , yes, have felt a need to clean the lens and camera externally often. My experience has not verified the, I think may be, over stated dust problem.

Dust really isn't an issue as far as IQ goes, atleast not on glass.
Sigh, and here I was hoping they'd release a weather sealed EF-S lens finally.
Meh. Still, it'll probably kick down the price on 17-55mm F2.8 lenses(and I plan on buying one), so hooray I guess.


A good photographer can take extraordinary photos anywhere, with any camera and any lens while a mediocre one will take mediocre ones everywhere, with every camera and every lens.
Never limit yourself with what others think you should do. Shoot what you find interesting, exactly the way you want to.

With Canon's current pricing strategy I would expect it to be on the higher end. The current "old" EFS 17-55 is $1100 street price so I would expect it to start off at $2000 for early adopters and drop closer to the $1500- $1600 range 6 or so months later.

If Canon does this however it will probably not be as good a seller since most crop cameras are sold to soccer moms and the like who would likely not stomach a lens that expensive. so it may surprise me?

-2mm on the bottom and +5 on the top ? Unless it really has more to offer than the 17-55 it doesn't make much sense from a marketing standpoint .

My first thought exactly.

But maybe they just touched up the build quality, and the occuring dust and IS failure problems...

But hey, its a rumor. Maybe it will take just as long as the infamous 24-70 2.8L IS
