Don't sell the 18-55

I have the 10-22 and I've tried the 15-85.  The 10-22 probably is my least-used lens, although occasionally when I have it in the right place at the right time I'm happy that I have it.  The 15-85 is a good lens from all reports and it's a nice focal-length range but it's expensive and surprisingly heavy.  I didn't find it that much better optically than the 18-55 in the focal-length ranges where they overlap although I still think about buying one from time to time.  But in any case, the 18-55 is worth so little and it's such a nice little walkaround lens that it seems a shame to get rid of it.  I was in Australia last November and I had the 18-55, the 55-250, a 70-200 f/2.8L, and a 400 f/5.6L, with a T2i and a 7D.  I'd say I took a third of my photos with the 18-55 lens.
