My 15-85 has been my most used lens lately. I don't use my 24-105L anymore.

Another vote for the 15-85. It's incredibly versatile! Go for the mid-range zoom and then determine later on if you actually need the UWA.

The 10-22 is a superb lens, absolutely stunning BUT, it is a speciality lens. 10mm is astoundingly wide and you won't appreciate how wide until you mount it on your camera. That out of the way, when you use it you will find out just how far away your subject appears to be from you. The fact that you haven't got a use for it speaks volumes. You will have great fun with it but its so hard to use correctly.
The last time I used mine was to photograph a cathederal. The building was so wide I had to back away to get it all in. Usually when you do that you have a huge empty void in front of the camera that, if you don't fill, renders half the photo with no interest whatsoever. Sorry to anyone who has seen this shot before but I feel it illustrates the dilema of an ultra wide lens. Your subject appears far away with no discernable interest, and the foreground is just empty space unless you work hard to overcome this, IF, the scenario allows for it..........
Look at this shot, it was hard to go close in landscape config, so you can see what I had to do. If I couldn't anchor the foreground with something look how much of the frame would be empty/boring !!! Get a fast 2.8 with IS, a practicle all rounder

How about a Tamron 28-75mm? Fixed f/2.8 thu-out the entire range, and within your budget.

28mm is not the widest, but is still pretty wide even on a crop body and 75mm will take you right to your 70-200mm that you just bought.

I use my 15-85 way more than my 10-22, don't get me wrong the 10-22 is a great lens and the difference from 10mm to 15mm is huge, but they have different applications. The 15-85 is so versatile 90% of the time it's mounted on my camera.

how about this... do you wan to be close to what your shooting? or do you wanna be so far you need to zoom in?

the 10-22 is a monster super sharp and captures everything... its better than any other lens ive used thats a wide angle on a crop hands down... if I did go full frame i wouldnt be selling mine!

I've never used the 15-85, but I've heard great things about it...however...there's something to be said about a lens with a constant f2.8 aperture as well! ...I think it's between the 15-85 and the Tamron for you...the Tamron is an excellent lens as well, but of course it's not quite as wide or long as the Canon...I had it for years and was thoroughly satisfied with it.

IF you don't already have a standard zoom, get the 15-85.

I seem to do just fine with the 10-22 and a 50 1.4 instead of a zoom, but I also shoot alot of sports so I'm on the tele 80% of the time. Dont have much experience with the 15-85, I'm just a lover a prime lenses in my mid ranges. The new 24-70 however is looking very promising, just stuck at 2.8

15-85 gets my vote. You will find yourself using the 15-85 I think more than the 10-22. 10-22 is more special purpose.

Sigma 17-50, sharp lens, fast af, awesome os. I very rarely use my 10-20, if i need wider than 17mm i just take a couple of shots and stitch them.


I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

I have the 15-85 and absolutely love it. Sharper then my 24-105 i used to own. 15mm is plenty wide for me and my style of shooting. It may not be for yours though.
