LOL, yes and I should know, I have 3 versions of the EF-S 18-55mm. The one that came on the Rebel XTi which was my first DSLR, and the 18-55 with noisy motor and no IS was my first interchangeable lens!
Considering my humble origins, and the fact that the 17-85mm IS USM was my first "USM" lens, I thought I had hit the big time! If you avoided the 17-24mm range, and liked the higher class look it was pretty cool at the time. I did not like the fact that the AF very quickly failed. I was soon to get the 70D with the 18-55mm STM and 55-250mm IS STM kit lenses. I never saw any reason to get the 17-85mm IS USM fixed. So it has been put on a shelf indefinitely!
