Of the three colleges I applied to, they all gave a list of 'recommended' equipment but I have spoken to a teacher about this particular camera and I will not be the orange amongst the apples. I am taking a course and not learning on my own because I want to learn in a structured atmosphere. I am fortunate enough to have had my kids, spent my life working and now I just want to focus without distractions of everyday life getting in the way (as I said I am fortunate enough to be in a position to do this).

Thanks to those who are giving me advice on the actual question, if I had wanted grief I would have spoken to my ex-husband.

I thought it was a simple enough question!

I agree with the other posters who've indicated that the EF 24-105L is probably the closest full frame analogue to the EF-S 15-85. But since you're already communicating with your instructor, you might consider running this question by him or her.
