This is the word. I couldn't get by on 24mm on a crop. 17-55 f2.8 is arguably Canon's best non "L" lens.

Some might argue that the EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro is Canon's best non-L...

I grew up in Ypsilanti -- :-) -- do you have a wider lens so you'd know if you would use the 15-24mm range? That is an important consideration - if you need it the 24-105 isn't for you, but if you wouldn't use it or miss it the 24-105 has longer reach than the 17-55 or the 15-85, and is a constant f4, so a stop slower than the 17-55 - just some more to chew on. Go Hurons (er Eagles) (I left MI in 1979).

I dont do a lot of indoor shooting, i have a 55-250 and i was kinding looking at what 105mm would get me and i think for a walk around i do want the 105mm reach.

I do have a wider angle lens but its a very poor one, which im selling with my camera to a friend. I hardly ever use. its a 19-35mm

Im usually using my 50 1.8(which i plan on selling as well) or the nifty 250

15-85 or the 24-105L would be my suggestions. I went with the popular opinion of "17-5x" is the only way to go, early on; and found out that I wound up with an expensive paperweight. It was too wide for pretty much every shot I wanted to take; so I traded it in for the 24-105 and that's worked wonderfully for me.

The 15-85 is a great distribution of focal lengths for general shooting, while not being as "fast" as the 17-5x aperture-wise. I haven't actually shot with that one myself, though, so I can't speak too much more to that lens.

It isn't a Canon non "L", and that's what we were talking about. :rolleyes:

welp i made the choice... i tired getting a 24-70 2.8L but best but didn't carry the older version anymore even though you can add it to your cart on their site.

So i went with the 17-55 2.8 along with a 60d... to say the least im super pumped!!!

love this combo already, i took 2 pics of the cactus one with the 17-55 and one with the 55-250 IS and it def was a better picture with the 17-55 as it should be. But the camera is also awesome in itself.

With all the lenses I have, my 17-55 is still my most used. You'll never want to sell it.
