If you had the choice: 17-55 or 15-85?
Aug 22, 2011

When I got my 17-55, the 15-85 was not produced yet. I now have the option to trade the 17-55 and get the 15-85.

What should I do? I like the idea of the wider and more reach of the 15-85 and it would (I guess) save me from getting 10-22?

On the other hand I kind of love the 17-55 2.8.

Could people who know both lenses give some pros and cons, let me know if the 15-85 is a good substitute for the 10-22 and the 17-55 and mostly, is it as good as the 17-55?

Would it be better to eventually just add a 10-22 to my 17-55? But then it is of course an additional lens.

Your guidance please!
