Question about Canon EF-S 17-85MM F/4-5.6 IS USM Lens
When shooting with my 17-85mm lens,and it is set all the way at 17mm dark shadows cut the top right and bottom left corner of the image.
Agreed with what Chris suggested. The lens hood must sit in properly at fully locked position. Need to use Canon orginal hood; other brand might pose a problem. Please bear in mind that a dark shadow will still appear at the bottom center if using build-in flash when shooting at 17mm; which is normal. When using 17mm, always use external flash or remove the lens hood when using build-in flash.

This is called "vignetting". To me it sounds like your lens hood isn't mounted correctly. If you don't turn it on all the way, exactly this will happen, because the longer "leaves" on the hood shadows the edges of the frame.
So, try to turnt the hood all the way on. You might have to use a little bit of force, as the hoods can be hard to turn sometimes.
Hope this helps!
