USM or STM for 70d?
Dec 18, 2013

I'm looking at 17-55mm f/2.8 USM and I'm absolutely in love with it after reading up about it and looking at some test photos.

But I'm torn if it's going to perform poor against an 18-135mm STM when taking videos.

I understand the speed (aperture) difference between the two, I'm just concerned if I'm getting more value for my money getting the 17-55mm than the 18-135mm.

I kinda have budget for either of the two, I normally shoot my kids and food, sometimes live events. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.
