Re: I sold my 17-85 too and ordered a 24-70L

point and shooter are OUT of the BOX more sharper than DSLRs... dslrs gives you more control of how your final image turns out... where as the P&S's are meant to be more convienient...

sharpness wasn't a reason why i went for the 24-70L (although it is a tad sharper than the 17-85)...

as stated above, my reason was to freeze movement in low/ambient light, which requires a faster lens... the IS does not help in this situation...
