I wasn't offered it...

Its only available in some markets..

oddly the US doesnt get it as an option for 7D kitting, We only have the option of the 18-135 (Which is kinda eh..) or the 28-135 (Which is also eh)

I bought mine when it first came out, Got the 7D after, I feel this lens is THE kit lens for the 7D like the 24-105L is for the 5DII

For sure. I did the same (550D/T2i though) Only time it comes off is when I'm after a bit more reach. Perfect walkaround lens for my requirements.

For me its been tending to be left at home in favor of my 28mm or 50mm primes..i simply need the aperture for isolation effect half the time...

I agree. It has the right focal length range for general use and wonderful image quality (and your review was a major factor in convincing me to get one :D).

Mine is welded to my X4. A perfect combination.

Learning photography has been very intriguing for me - still a long way to go, but I keep on trying...

I'm the same! But it's sure fun trying.
I just purchased the 15-85mm lens today as my everyday walk around lens. I can't wait to try it out.

I just got back from a trip to Machu Picchu. The only lens I took was the 15-85 IS mounted on my 60D. It did everything I wanted from close ups of Moche portrait vases in museums to cathedral ceilings to portraits of Andean people selling wares at local markets. Needless to say it did a superb job at Machu Picchu itself. The only other thing I took was a 430EX flash for fill purposes. The 15-85 is a superb lens!

You'll miss the wide zoom range and long end, but you won't regret, i'm sure about that ;)

Taken indoors on a Winter's afternoon without tripod. The results always amaze me.

My longest lens for a few years was a 24-105 on a 5D, so I'll manage.
Ow and also have a 100-400 :D

The image quality of the 18-200 was, for me, to big of a compromise.
I'm hoping the 15-85 will deliver.
