does anybody know about the build quality of this lens? EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM and if it is a dust magnet...

Thanks

Paul

i have been using this lens as my primary wedding and portrait lens for 2 years and i wouldn't take any other lens for it. it is pricey but it does have i.s. which really helps. the build quality is not L and it is not sealed like an L but with the sensor cleaning i have never had a problem with dust. this is just my humble opinion
