Re: Best lens in the 15-85 range

To update, after much research, I have recently decided to forego the long end and went with the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 non-VC. I am thoroughly impressed with this lens; the IQ is everything I had hoped it would be. My only reservations in purchasing were reviews concerning field of curvature and resultant out of focus corners at 17mm. To be honest I'm not really seeing that, possibly as a result of using a crop body.

You could likely get better imaging across the board with a Canon 17-55 along with IS but the savings with the Tamron were too good to pass up, and I am thrilled with the images.

Thanks to all for your recommendations.
