Hey,

As my sig states, my current lenses are the Canon 18-200mm and the 300mm f4l.

On the long end I am set and pleased. However I want to go wider as well.
Since I only recently got the Canon 300mm f4l, I don't yet have the fund to purchase a Sigma 10-20mm. I've been thinking of selling the 18-200mm but the versatility is just a shame to loose.

Therefore I thought maybe the 15-85mm could be a good replacement for my 18-200mm.
It's sharper, wider, better overall but I loose the long tele-end and of course it is not as wide as a 10-20mm lens.

Is there any point replacing the 18-200mm to a 15-85mm lens or should I wait and save up some money and just add the Sigma 10-20mm to my collection in the future?

Thanks :)

The 15-85 is a great lens to have.

If you are satisfied with the IQ of your 18-200, then no, don't replace it because you are losing out on a lot of versatility.

If you want better IQ, then go for it, and get an UWA later.

15-85 is a very nice lens, I think you'd be very happy with it.

I think(and thoughts can be dangerous now)


but I think you NEEEEEEED a faster lens. F3.5 is really slow for your fast end.


the 17-55 has really opened my eyes. As much as I hate the EFS mount(because sony's DT and Nikons DX lenses mount to their full frame cameras), I reallllly enjoy the 17-55.


Or the sigma 30! it even works on 1.3x sensors!

Keep the 18-200; save $ for the 10-22 and purchase the 50 1.8 as your first prime.
