    The wide description is refering to its performance at 17mm - the wide end of the lenses zoom range
    The tele part is refering to the longer end of the lens - the 55mm end.

    Because of the nature of many zoom lenses the performance at different ends can vary - on the high end ones its not by very much at all - on low end ones its more noticable (often the tele end is the weaker). I have no experience of the lens though so can't comment on that specifically

    Don't pay much attention to the catch words in a lens description. Look at the numbers.

    That is a very high quality lens, by the way.
