Is the 17-55 f/2.8 really as good as everyone says it is?

I would own one if I shot a Nikon crop. It has reviews very similar to the Canon version on Photozone and SLR Gear. I owned the Canon version and it was frickin' outstanding, so I can assume the same about the Nikon.

Only drawback is that it seems to be about $100-$200 more expensive than the Canon version, which is really expensive itself.

That's the whole trend for Nikon i believe. lol. One of the reasons i'm considering switching to a 60D. Also, the canon 10-22 is said to be excellent.

I loved the 10-22. I really wish Canon had a FF lens of the same caliber and at the same price point (only option is the 16-35L or 14L).

It's brilliant. I would buy one again if they had VR.

It is a bit pricy but I love it! It's my walk around lens. It is sharp and the auto focus is very quick. It's a 10/10 lens in my book.

17-55 is so beastly built, better than the 24-70. And just about every Canon lens thats under 1500.

I had a bit of a chuckle, because I noticed you put your zooms in your bag and leave your primes at home. Nothing wrong with that, I was just amused that I'm the complete opposite

I have a Minolta x300s 35mm with a heliopan S 55 and S 49 lense (I'm just a minor hobbyist so I couldn't tell you the size of the lenses except that the S 55 is the standard lense and the S 49 is for closeups), and Kodak tMax 400 and tMax 100 B&W film (which is becoming increasingly hard to find). I also have an older Sekonic light meter lying around somewhere, but I don't have a tri-pod for the camera.
