Re: 15-85 for travel purposes

I chose the 15-85 over the 18-55 and 18-135 for use as a travel lens because I wanted something wider than 18mm.  Many years ago I used a 10D with a 28-135 as my travel kit, then upgraded to a 40D with a 17-40L.  I now use a 77D together with the 15-85 and that suits me perfectly.  The 15-85 is heavier and more expensive, but in my opinion well worth it.  The IQ is very good.  I cannot comment on the 17-70 because I have no experience of that lens.
