Looking to complement 18 -135 for close shots, any benefit of 18-55?
Dec 12, 2011

Since I'm still new I only have my onitial 18-135 lens as I'm not in a rush to by another lens until I get a solid feel for what I shoot most often and how I like to do it. I've noticed so far I do wind up taking quite a bit indoor shots such as museums, random kids madness and/or parties and portraits. These scenarios I never zoom very far as I'm too close to the action. Other than the size and weight reduction is there any benefit to getting a 18-55mm (the II w/ IS) in terms of quality?

Is the next step up (in terms of quality) for the zoom range the EF-S 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM or is there something else to consider?

Thanks!
