I ordered the 17-55 f/2.8 last week after saving for a very long time and finding the best sale price I had seen ever. I used it for the first the other night at my son's baccalaureate mass and all I can say is "WOW"! I am so glad I took the plunge! I could see the improved quality immediately! I think I will definitely be getting my money's worth out of this lens! Have a great time in WDW~

My son's baccalaureate is tomorrow night. I have no idea what the setting will be like photographically, so I'm bringing the 17-55 along with the zoom I have rented for graduation.

Glad you're enjoying the lens! I hope you got some great portraits of your graduate with that lens!

Well we are back from Florida. The trip was great and I have to say the lens worked beyond great.

Didn't really get to take alot of pics as it was just me and my daughter this trip so the camera did not get taken out as much as it would have had there been another adult along.

The image quality and constant 2.8 were amazing with the new lens. So much more low light capability compared to the variable aperture on my previous "walk around" lens. I tried to test its limits in several different ways and it performed great in all cases. The only time it had a bit of trouble was when i tried to do a kind of "artsy" shot involving a hanging light bulb and it had a hard time locking in on the curved surface of the bulb when i had it set at 2.8 aperture, but I would assume that would be very difficult for any lens.
