Advice needed between Canon 17-55 IS f2.8 and Canon 24-70mm IS 2.8
Jul 10, 2008

Currently I have a 40D with the kit lens 17-85 and have been taking quite a few photos and learning how to handle and use my new Camera (first DSLR).

Now, I would like to get a better walk about lens and am in a dilemma as to whether to go for Canon EF-S 17-55 f2.8 or the Canon EF 24-70 f2.8 lens.

I also plan to get a wide angle and telephoto Zoom.

Any advice would be welcome keeping in mind that I am planning a trip to Kenya in December and will be visiting a few Game parks. Please advice on the required lenses for Landscapes, Wildlife, nature and portrait photography.
