Overlooking Florence, Italy. Not quite so happy with this pano, but still OK.

Slickooz, (though anyone else who feels inclined, feel free to comment)

I see you have both the 17-55 and the 15-85 lenses. If you could characterize their differences for me.... not the f/2.8 constant, etc... that I understand. I'm more interested in any IQ differences you are seeing. The reason I ask is probably self explanatory. I just purchased a 60D and could only afford one lens to start so I selected a used 15-85. As time goes on, I'll be adding lenses and am wondering if when I have some of the other focal lengths covered, I should consider upgrading to the 17-55.

I shoot a variety of things so I can't single out one thing. I know the f/2.8 will give me more low light capabilities and from the shots on this thread, the IQ is amazing. I guess I'm wondering if the 15-85 is 90% of the IQ, color accuracy, lack of CA, etc when compared to the 17-55 or if there is some other way to measure the differences where it makes sense to me.

Sorry for the wandering post. I hope someone can make sense of my ramblings.

Hey I been so busy lately, my dad bought a new house and I been working on it past 2 weeks with no days off. I don't have much time to do any controlled testing. I'm planning on selling my 15-85 once I get a few test shots, so I can write up a review to help others. I had the same problem when I was choosing my walk around. Went with 15-85 because it was cheaper and the IQ that I saw in threads were amazing.

Today I got go back and help in the after noon, so I will try to get some shots in.

thx, Slickooz.

No rush. I am getting a 100mm macro next... then probably something with a bit more length.... after that, I'll be relooking at my walk-around options
