I'm thinking about buying one or the other of these lenses after I sell an arm and a leg and, just looking for some input as to which one might be the better choice.
Both lenses when not on sale are basically $1000(CDN) a piece.
Lens would be used on a Canon 40D.
The "widest" lens I have now is the 28-135 kit lens.
At this point, my photography interest are outdoor scenes/landscapes.
I've rented the 15-85 and liked it.
Hoping to rent the 10-22 in the next week or so.
Have seen some really impressive picture for both lenses in the lens archive.
The 10-22 is holding a slight edge advantage to me based on what I've seen.
But, I don't want to base my decision on the pictures because anyone who is really good at Photoshop etc, can make pictures look really good.
Then again, if I learned how to use Photoshop, I could possibly do the same thing.
For me, right now the 15-85 has a strike against it due to lens creep. To some people that's not an issue but, if I'm going to spend $1000 on a lens, it shouldn't have the creep issue. Sounds like it's a quality control issue after reading that not all of these lenses have that problem.
Has that problem been fixed on the current 15-85 lenses?
