Do I buy 15-85 or a set of 17-85 + 70-200 4L (non-IS)??
May 23, 2011

Arghhh.... all the choices!!! I finally decided to buy a EOS 60d and a Canon 15-85 lens for my entry into the DSLR world. So far I've spent hours and hours on researching specs, reviews and prices. And now i just realized this:

I can get a 60d + 17-85 (kit) + 70-200 for only 100$ more than 60d + 15-85. I know the 15-85 is a much better (reviewed) lens than the 17-85. But is it really an entire L lens better? The idea of owning an L lens seems very attractive. With the 70-200, I would imagine that my need for lenses would be satisfied for a longer time. On the other hand, the 17-85 would probably be on my camera more often than the 70-200. What to do, what to do???
