I must begin by apologising as, looking around, there have been quite a few threads comparing these two lenses – there are just a couple of things, though, that I haven't been able to find out and I'd be very grateful if someone with experience of the 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 lens might be able to help, please? I'd also been considering the 17-55 f/2.8.As it's such a long post (sorry), I thought I might be best to get my questions out of the way early on:• Does the 15-85 feel unbalanced on an...

I'm taking a trip with a group of photographers over to Death Valley next Friday for the weekend. I rarely get the chance to explore photography in an area like this, so I'm very keen on trying out different types of photography for the trip. With that said, I'm bringing my Canon Rebel Xti with the kit lens and the new 50mm f/1.8 lens, along with a tripod. However, I know that more equipment will be needed. Thus, are there any advice or suggestions on lenses and equipment I should bring with...
Hi, I'm just wondering what everyone thinks about this, this is my first post so bear with me. I currently have a canon 60D with a 70-200mm f4 L IS USM, and an 18-135mm IS kit lens. I'm looking at getting the 17-55mm lens to replace the 18-135mm as a walk around lens, but I'm not sure if it is worth it. I can get it new for about £395 (from a reputable seller), which I'm lead to believe is very cheap for this lens (this price does include a cashback offer from canon). It also comes with a...
Hi thereI am a beginner by every means, had my 650D for around a year now. Know about settings and aperture and iso and everything.When it comes to deciding between a fast lens (2.8 or 1.8 and so on) and another lens say 3.5 or f4 and higher. The latter being better in low light photography. Is that just low light hand held? I see many incredible photos taken with the 17-55 and many say due to its 2.8 aperture its better than say a slower 15-85 in some instances. All the great pictures I see...

Our school archives is looking to purchase a DSLR to serve two purposes: First, we would use it to digitize (i.e. photograph) a collection of large scrapbooks by mounting the camera above them on a camera stand, then using remote capture to view the shot on a monitor and take the picture. The largest scrapbooks are about 28"x22" and we would try to supplement the ambient light in the room with some work lights on stands. Second, we would use it to film speakers in two different contexts --...
7d, 1/60 @ f/10 ISO 100, 31mm (EF-S17-55mm f/2,8 IS USM) I,m having trouble getting my images pin sharp. The active focus point is at the yellow trees in the center. It seems that the image is more sharp in the front then in the back. I see this issue often, specially in landscape images. The details does not come out as I like them to. Any suggestions? Is it my technique, my camera or my lense?
Has anyone experienced any problems with focusing to inifinity?I use the Commlite adapter for Canon lenses on the A7s, and since recently it won't allow the camera to focus at infinity, turning the focus ring all the way just never reaches infinity.Anyone with similar problem and any solutions? Have you had similar problem with other adapters like the Novoflex, Fotodiox or the Metabones adapter?I tried cleaning the connecting pins, mounting and dismounting the adapter, different lenses.Tested...
