Lenses / Did I get a bad copy of the EF-S 17-55 f2.8?
« on: September 10, 2013, 06:15:20 PM »
I just received my “new” refurbished  EF-S 17-55 f2.8 from Canon.
Really excited, until I began testing the lens and comparing it to my 18-55  kit lens.

The 17-55 is touted as being a great lens, please tell me if the one I got is merely lousy
or if this is typical.

I've done a bunch of boring tests,  but here are some comparisons of the 17-55 compared to the kit lens at f5.6. 

The 17-55 is sharper in the center.

The 17-55 has less CAs

The kit lens is sharper with less distortion on the edges at all focal lengths.

Is this a bad copy?  If so  I'll see if Canon will exchange it.
What is other people's experience?

Lenses / Big price Drop On the EF-S 17-55 f2.8 IS USM

There has been a $300 price drop on the EF-S 17-55 f2.8 IS USM.
Now going for $879 at Canon, Adorama, B&H, Amazon and most likely everywhere else.

Does this suggest a (new and improved) replacement is in the near future?
