I prefer to have a little bit of overlap. Zoom lenses aren't always at their best performance at the very edge of their ranges and I prefer to not have to change lenses as often.

I love the 24-105, myself; but if you already have the 17-55 and are happy with that focal range, I would just keep it and get the 10-22. As others have mentioned, a little overlap is pretty nice, since you can keep the wider lens for much more specific uses.

I find the 10-22/24-105/70-200/100-400 combo gives a very nice breakdown of focal lengths for mots situtations; and I can break those down to smaller groups. Outdoors/landscapes [24-105/10-22], events/friends/family [24-105/70-200], wildlife/birds/"friend​ly" critters [100-400/70-200]

So you are more interested in reducing lens overlap than IQ? That's a very odd statement on this forum, especially since you already own the 17-55. -rick

I am not a professional so I don't need my pics to be super sharp.

The combo I am shooting for is: 10-22, 15-85 and 70-200. Very good IQ, decent overlap. I have 1 of the 3 so far, two to go.. :D

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Ultimate crop combo IMO

+ a fast prime or two to suit what you shoot.

For me, not quite.

I would substitute the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II with the Sigma 50-150 f/2.8 OS HSM. :D

I don't have the 10-22 yet, maybe some day. :(

That's fine if you're more into portraiture/events. What if you want to shoot some wildlife/sports..150mm on crop is pretty short?

@OP..i also love having some overlap.. having a choice between 2 lenses for the same shot, makes me comfortable, and not having to change lenses for the sake of a few mm is a great time-saver, with less chance to introduce dust into your camera.

150mm on crop is 240 equivalent of what you're seeing.....definitely not short lol.

Keep in mind that your 17-55 is also great for low light situations where a tripod isn't practical or allowed.

I have similar overlap and wouldn't change my line up.


Fuji convert - Ping me if you have any Fuji gear or legacy glass you're moving.

It doesn't matter what math you use, 200 > 150. If you're gonna make that conversion for one lens you have to make it for both...which is then 280 vs 240 <shrug>

And even so, unless the animals you're working with are domestic or REALLY habituated to people, either of those are going to, definitely, be short.

You have a 50mm and a 30mm that overlap with the 24-105L ? and 5mm of overlap between the 24-105L and the 100-400 ? I would think most people think that there is NO overlap here- really !.

Me, I prefer REAL overlap... Cuts down on lens changing... And there is way too much obsession about eliminating overlap...

Its really not about eliminating overlap, its about getting more coverage. I don't have a lot of gear and I don't think I ever will. I am just a hobbyist. My thought was with the canon 10-22 I will be able to shoot wide angle landscapes etc. Then with the Tamron 24-70 I will have a good walk around lens, which has f2.8 for low light. I the past when I have travelled I just took the 17-55 and now I will ad the 10-22.

A lot of people seem to love the 17-55. Maybe I will just keep it and use my legs to zoom in.

Yep, you bet, portraiture and events are exactly what I shoot 90% of the time. :D
