Thank you for the feedback!

I've found this lens for $300, any thoughts? https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/351548-USA/Canon_9517A002BA_EF_S_17_85mm_f_4_5_6_IS.html

Also, could someone explain the difference between the EF-S 18-55mm STM vs the 18-55mm IS II (besides $50)?

I don't know that model, the dpreview database shows it's REALLY old.. Not sure if I would go for that.

If you want to get a 18-55mm again, definitely go for a STM version. Not only does it incorporate better AF, but also the front element doesn't rotate (invaluable for polarizer work, which I hope you have one, when planning to go to Yosemite 😉 ). I think it's sharper too, but not sure on that one.

BTW, what body are you using it on?
