This is a rare and strange lens.  I bought mine used on Ebay for $12.  It is hilarious, but shoots very nice photos.

A little info on this masterpiece of cheap kit lens.  First, it's a kit lens.  From the Film Era.  It was made for an APS film camera.  But there was no such thing as a crop lens at the time, and this lens is Full Frame.  You could buy it separately, you did not have to buy it as a kit.

Specifically it was made for the Canon EOS IX http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_EOS_IX.  Which was a sales flop.

Fourteen years ago, I was an a film shooter avid to reach a wider angle of view and without resources to buy the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L, 16-35 f/2.8L, 20-35mm f/2.8L or even the 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5, then I discovered that although the Canon EF 22-55mm f/4-5.6 had been designed for the APS cameras, I could use it with a 35mm camera.  I looked for one for over a year and when I bought it, it was a real joy.  I could make images of large buildings and interiors.  It was one of the lenses which made me love photography.  I used mine from 2004 (with film cameras) to 2008 (when I bough the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5).  It was a great lens for me.
