Canon 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM EF-S lens (made in Taiwan)

This lens more commonly comes as part of a kit, but it can also be bought on its own as an aftermarket option. Generally quite a sharp EF-S kit lens specifically designed for digital crop sensors. So 17mm is 17mm with this lens just as 85mm on this lens at the tele end is 85mm when used with a crop sensor Canon dslr.

Canon 50mm f1.8 MKII EF lens (EF a full frame) on a crop sensor body...

Some people complain you can't fit much in the frame using a 50mm full frame lens on a 1.6x crop sensor body which is true. But maybe it might be worth considering that an 85mm f1.8 EF lens costs around about 300 to 500GBP depending on where you buy and whether it's brand new or second hand.

A 50mm EF lens on a Canon 1.6x crop sensor camera body will give you an 80mm equivalent viewing field, which is very close to using the 85mm EF lens ...
