17-55 2.8 or 12-24 4, help me decide.
May 8, 2007

I know there is a lot of collective wisdom on this forum.

The Revenu-Quebec (or the IRS for the US) has been very generous this year. I need help deciding what my next lens will be. I am not a pro photographer but I enjoy photography as a serious hobby. I try to do all kind of photos (portraits and landscape mostly). You can have a look at yvesperr.smugmug.com to get an idea.

I presently own a 70-200 2.8 VR (fantastic) and a 18-200 VR (very practical but slow). I went today at my photo store and played with a 17-55 2.8 and a 12-24 f4.

What sould I do, sell the 18-200 and get the 17-55 or add the 12-24???

Please give me your toughts on this dilemma...
