Re: 7d/5d Mark II vs New lens

Thank you for all of your responses!!!

I took the opinion of Scottg82 and Jeff Stack and bought the Tamron 17-50 (non VR). It made way more sense, and after picking up that lens yesterday It is my go to lens! For $500 this lens is incredibly sharp, the AF is a little noisy but, I now have a new appreciation for wide angle lenses. The stock 18-55 does not do this focal length justice. I also looked at the Sigma 17-50 but contrary to online reviews, after trying it in the store the images seemed a little soft, I guess the quality of optics varies on 3rd party lenses more so then on Canon or Nikon lenses.

This would also limit my decision of cameras to the 7D and I cant wait until 3 weeks from now so I can purchase one.

Again thanks everyone for there input and have a Happy New Year!!!
