HI guys!

So i decided to get a 70-200 f4l, and have about $600 left for budget.
In these lens, which one will you guys suggest me to get first? ( should get the 10-22 with either 15-85 or 17-50 2.8 eventually, but which one should i get first?)

Canon 10-22
Canon 15-85
sigma/tamron 17-50 2.8

I have had my 10-22 for about 2 years. I like it. I got my 15-85 in July. The 15-85 is so good at 15 that I don't mount the 10-22 much anymore. I am keeping it because it does 10mm and nothing else I have will. The 10-22 has become a specialty only lens for me.

It depends on what you shoot...

It depends entirely on which is more important to what you want to shoot first. We don't know that...

Most people would say a standard zoom would be more flexible, but you could argue 10-22 if you shoot a ton of very wide angle.

Although I don't have a 10-22 I always find the 15 was wide enough that I never felt the need for wider.
I have travelled quite a lot and I think unless you are really into UWA you can skip it.

15mm is plenty wide. it also covers a nice focal length for general needs. so with a 15-85 you have ultra wide-ish angle covered to decent telephoto range covered. as long as you're okay with variable aperture. Your prime takes care of low light so you'll be fine.

Both the 15-85 and 10-22 are great lenses that hold their value well so start with one and you won't lose
much if you switch (buying used).I would go with the 15-85 first!

My 15-85 is my second most used lens, 100-400 being numero uno. My 10-22 barely gets out of the bag. I would say it's my least used lens.

thanks for the replies and suggestions!

I'm just a beginner so i dont exactly know what i really want to shoot, but i guess ill start with the 15-85 and if i find it not wide enough then get a uwa!

does everyone suggest the 15-85 over the sigma 17-50 2.8? none of you mention the sigma 17-50 2.8 and that surprised me :confused:

Sincerely

it all depends if you need the extra stops for low light or want some background separation that the 2.8 can do

all your lenses you mentioned all have different advantages and disadvantages. it really depends on what you shoot and need it for.

10-22 is an ultra wide and a specialty lens. landscape and architecture would benefit from this. 15-85 is an all around great general purpose lens. has good reach and relatively wide. 17-50 is not as wide as the rest but useful and doesnt have the reach. but you can use it in low light and control dof more

The Sigma 17-50 gets pretty good reviews, so it isn't a bad lens at all. You have to decide which is more important to you -- the wide range of focal length (i.e. 15-85) or the wider aperture (i.e. 17-50 or Canon 17-55). If you're not sure yet, then it is best to just keep taking more photos and you will develop your preferences and styles.

Personally, I prefer to pair a slower lens + prime to serve a variety of situations. Like the 15-85mm plus 30 f/1.4. I am only selling my 15-85 because I have switched to full frame.

ya thats what i was thinking about as well!
Since i have a 50 1.8 to shoot for low light and if i want more dof.

Is 15-85 with a 430ex ii able to handle most things that a 17-50 2.8 can do?
And since the 15-85 is wider so i guess i can also test on it to see if i want ever wider lens!

15-85, its probably a must have lens for any crop shooter. Good IQ, excellent IS, its not very heavy, although on your 600D, you will feel the camera to be front heavy.

10-22 is more a specialty lens. 15-85 gives a very good range and serves as an excellent walk around general purpose lens.

I agree. You may very well find that 15mm is wide enough for you, too, and the 10-22 will be unnecessary.

I have the 15-85mm and I am very glad I didn't go the 17-55 way as 75% of the shots I take are at 15 or 85.


Canon 6D | S35mm f1.4 | 135mm f2 The rest: T3i, 20D, 15mm f2.8, 15-85mm, 24mm f2.8, 50mm f1.8, 85mm f1.8, 90mm f2.8 macro, 55-250mm.
So long and thanks for all the fish
