Just Sent Back The 17-55 F2.8

I sent it back not because I did not like it. I did like it very much. I really appreciate Adorama's 14 day return policy.

It is too wide for motion picture interviews. You have to get the camera too close to your subject to be able to zoom close enough for a medium shot.

I bought the highly regarded EF 24-105 F4 L instead. I will miss the wider angle of view but this lens will be better on the tele end and is probably a better walk around lens if you were to carry one lens.

I got a fair amount of moiré at the wide end of the lens. Video on a DSLR does not like fine detail.
