another +1 on the 15-85. heavier than the kit lens, but sharper and more accurate focus. I tend to use the extremes quite often. there sure is a world of difference between 15 and 18mm. likewise 55 and 85 mm. I think this lens exceeds the resolution of my XS

I will say that in pictures little going on, the vignetting is a bit noticeable wide open at the 15mm end. but I find that only in blue skies and otherwise non-busy subject matter. I will say however - that sunset shots wide open the darker corners add a nice framing.

I too have the 55-250 for really long stuff, but the 18-55 went up for sale within the first 100 pictures taken with the 15-85.

My xs travels now with the 15-85 only - unless I know that I am planning some long shots - then the 55-250 comes along.
