Hi, I'm not entirely new to these forums but I only just signed up today.

I'm but a poor student who's interested but not very good at "this photography thing" ;)
I have a 30D with my kit 18-55 and a 50/1.4 prime, and a 15-85 on its way to me from B&H's warehouse right now. For months I'd been contemplating buying a sigma 18-200 (hey, it's cheap!) but the 15-85, despite its price, won me over. I bought the 15-85 to use as an all-around lens to use on my backpacking trip in Europe this summer (5-6 weeks) as well as a 2-week vacay on the East Coast (of the US) immediately after that and was wondering about peoples' opinions on that one vacation lens that you guys love to use.


PS I read this other thread, on Europe travel lenses, and am now considering renting a 10-22mm as well. But for 8 weeks, it won't be cheap. Still considering it very strongly though...

Why don't you purchase a used Canon 10-22mm or Sigma 10-20mm? Resell the lens after your trip. You'd most likely save money this way.

There is one lens to survive all, but not one lens to rule them all.

If it did exist.. interchangeable cameras will come to an end.

Sell your kit and prime, pick up a Tokina 11-16 f2.8 and keep your 15-85. You now have a great combo with coverage from 11-85mm. The Tokina is sharp as a tack.


| 7D | Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 | 17-55 f/2.8 | 24 f/1.4L II | 60 f/2.8 Macro | 70-200 f/2.8L IS II | EF 2X II | 430EX II
