Is the 17-85 IS lens worth ...
Jul 1, 2008

... spending more for -vs- the newer 18-55 IS lens? ... In other words is there anyone out there who has owned both and can tell me if the added benefits of the 17-85 lens are worth the extra money over the cost of the 18-55 IS lens? Is the IS effectiveness pretty much the same and how about weight differences on say an XT/XTi? ... I'm asking because now is a very good time to score a great deal on a used DSLR and lens -but- I know the glass makes a huge difference and thus the question... thanks, Matt
