Nearly at the same price which is a more sensible choice on 7d? I know 17-40 is FF and buy not the other. I know L is a better choice but still like to hear what you say.

On a 7D? IMHO, neither. 15-85 is simply too slow, particularly so as it approaches the tele end. The 17-40 is both too short at the tele end and too slow at f4. I would suggest the EFS 17-55 f2.8 IS.

Best regards
