I'm in the same boat as a few folks here. When I was upgrading my lens, I was torn between the 17-55 f2.8 and the 15-85mm for a all purpose lens, and I ended up with the 15-85mm but kind of regret it now, as I begin to get into a lot of indoor low light situations and quickly discover that the 15-85 is just not good at all for that situation especially on pets.
My question is, is it worth it to try and sell the 18-85 and side step to the 17-55 f2.8 so I could use it for outdoor and indoor? or try to pick up another lens just for indoor? I do have the cheap 50mm f1.8, and it works awesome indoor, but the zoom is just a bit too much for what I need it for, I need to be able to be closer to my subjects while shooting.
I've also looked at some 24 to 35mm primes for indoor, but most of them are none IS, which kind of scares me and kind of holding me back from pulling the trigger, should it really be as big of concern?
Sorry, don't mean to thread jack, but I'd figure its along the same topic, so didn't want to create a new thread.
