That seems absurd to me.
For a "general" zoom lens,
the 17-55 fits your APS-C
camera *much* better; if
you need wide-angle, the
10-22 would be fantastic!

you'll come to it. But don't
chose your lenses for your
nowaday's camera thinking
of the camera you *might*
buy in undefined —and un-
forseeable?— future...)

I agree with the above advice.  The EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 is a wonderful lens on the 7D!  It takes a lot of great photos for me!  I bought it used for $850, and IF I were to ever need to sell it, I feel that I can recover all if not most of what I paid for it.

Buy what works BEST for the camera that you have NOW!

When you get down to the nuts and bolts of photography, the results depend on the 'nut' behind the camera!
