Re: EF-S 15-85mm and EF 17-40mm Owners

17-40 x 1.6 = 27-64 on crop, pretty close to 24-70L range, quite a walk around I'd say.

I don't think they are comparable.

15-85 is a general walkaround on crop, whereas 17-40 is really a UWA on ff...the range is simply not good if you intend to use it as a walkaround on crop.

Even if you planning to go ff, a 15-85 equiv. would be the 24-105. so you are really comparing apple to orange.
