Just how good is the 17-55 IS?
Dec 15, 2011

There is no equivalent Nikon lens with an aperture of f/2.8 and stabilisation. Is it worth getting the 7D just to enjoy that lens? Or is it not actually that brilliant and way overpriced? I have some very good lenses including the Nikon 60mm 2.8 and 50mm 2.8 but deep down I have always been a Canon man since my days of the A1 and T90. I have D300s and D700 at the moment but yearn to return to Canon. Nikon AF is good on the D700 but don't let anyone tell you it's perfect. Is the 7D a great camera with that lens or just good? I alreay know that the high ISO is nowhere near the D700 (but probably better than D300s). I have given up on the D7000 - buffer too small and the skin tones have been a problem for me.
