EF-S 15-85mm and EF 17-40mm Owners
Jul 5, 2011

I am stuck between deciding on the 15-85 or 17-40mm for my 60D. I want to hear from those who own/have extensively used either on a APS-C camera and the resulting image quality. I know the 15-85 is very good if not better than the 17-40 in IQ but there seems to also be quite a few bad samples of this lens. On the side of the 17-40 it can be used on a FF camera and lets face it, its and L lens and beats the 15-85 on overall build quality. And honestly I dont think the 15-85 is worth the $759 price tag(more like a $600 lens), whereas the 17-40 is somewhat more worth the price IMO. What do you owners have to say either way?
