I have been following this forum the past few weeks and got a lot of good information from the community. I just purchased the Canon 60D body for $850 from B and H photo when they priced matched Best Buy this past Sunday. That purchase was all thanks to a post on POTN which saved me $150. I'm expecting to receive the camera tomorrow and am still piecing everything together and wanted your guys' opinion on which lens to choose as my walk around lens? My budget is 700-800 dollars and have narrowed it down to these 2 lenses:
Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM UD Wide Angle Zoom Lens or
Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens
Both prices are comparable but the 15-85 has a longer focal point and the 17-40 is wider and is L series quality. I also already own a 50mm 1.8 and a 55-250 to start off with if that makes a difference.
Keep in mind I plan on using this lens to walk around conventions/electronic shows which requires shooting moving objects and taking pictures in a few dimly lit rooms. I'm new to all of this and just made the move from Point and Shoot cameras to SLRs. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.
