Following this thread. Trying to decide whether to get this lens to partner my coming 7D.
This lens is probably the best walkaround/travel lens available - unless you need better low light capabilites, in which case you have two options:
- Go for the 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM
- Use prime lenses for the low light stuff
I decided to go the slow-zooms-fast-primes way and I'm quite happy with it at the moment. However, if I had to shoot weddings or other stuff where there is simply no time for changing lenses, I'd probably go for f/2.8 zooms.
