I have both EF-S 17-55 and EF-S 15-85

I started with 17-55/2.8 as my all-round lens, but now have both this and the 15-85mm. They are both GREAT lenses, and I have loved both. But after getting the 15-85 I more and more rarely see myself using the 17-55mm. If I went out with the 17-55mm it was almost every time supplemented with my EF-S 10-22mm (great lens too btw:-)). But with the EF-S 15-85mm I often go with that alone. The 2mm extra wide really does a lot. Also I always felt the 17-55mm was a bit too heavy. The 15-85mm are just the perfect combi for range, weight and optical performance for me.

And if I need something faster to supplement the 15-85mm, I can take the little light and cheap EF50mm/1.8 with me too.
