Re: I sold my 17-85 too and ordered a 24-70L
In reply to NoGodForMe, May 10, 2005

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...
