Is this what you have been dreaming of?

Canon 17-55 / 2.8 IS

I know it looks fake, and of course unreasonable, but we can still dream.

We should hear actual product announcements by the end of this week.

Drat! Now you won't be joining us in the land of Nikon.

P.S. dpReview already has the announcement posted on their site.

The Nikon version makes me all warm & fuzzy inside.

Ok, it's not an 'L' lens, but that doesn't mean much. On paper, it is the perfect 28~90mm range, it is fast, and has IS. If the image quality is good wide open, I don't care about the cost.

Agreed. If it's a good performer, it will stay on my camera body about 80% of the time, so it's worth some $$$.

Too bad I have some big expenses coming up soon, it looks like I will have to wait on this lens for a while.

I think I'm gonna get it. It may just be a little kick that I need. Just on the weekend, again, I could have used the extra stop and occasionally, on the long end, two stops (from the 17-85).

It may also prevent me from breaking the bank for a brand new 5D and make me satisfied with the 20D for at least until next October.

So it may actually save me a ton of money!

The price in Europe is quoted at around 1100 €. Some shops claim it is shipping in May.

I would be a lot happier if it wasn't an EF-S mount... I do hope to get a FF camera someday.

I don't see it as a big issue if you're thinking of switching "someday." When that day comes, you sell your 20D and 17-55 lens as a package to a happy buyer.

On the other hand, if you were pretty definitely planning to buy a 5D in six months, then I wouldn't buy the 17-55 now.
