Now you would need a BIG racquet for those, and an even BIGGER net :)

The biggest issue you'll find is that it's almost impossible not to thoroughly enjoy using it! Have a great trip to Italy! Look forward to lots of great shots to be posted on your return.

Not the most exciting shots...I know. But does anyone else have vignetting like I do with this lens?

As with a number of wide angle lenses, the vignetting on this lens is fairly common, especially on the wider end, as the EXIF shows these at f/4 and f/5.6. Try stopping down as it usually all but disappears around f/8. It is fairly easy to correct in PP. I really enjoy this lens - crisp, sharp and fast as well as versatile.

Thank you. By "wide" you mean aperture not the 15mm focal length. Correct?

How is correction done in pp?

Yeah...this is pretty sharp. I'm liking it.

Even stopped down, I still have slight vignetting on my copy of this lens. It is actually more pronounced in the top right corner, however it is easily fixed in Lightroom.

would you guys sell your lens for the 17-55mm if you had to have 1 lens only?

Funny you asked that question. It's the exact dilemma I'm in right now.
Actually worse, I have both the 17-55 and 15-85.
My intention is/was to use the former for indoor shots while the latter for outdoors. I just can't let my 15-85 go as it's such a sharp copy and very versatile, until available light diminishes. Though I can still drag the shutter further due to the IS. But the 2.8 on the 17-55 allows me to push it further. Also I use the former for indoor videos while the latter for outdoors.
Don't know how much longer I can hold on to both.

The 15-85 is amazing outdoors for its range and the images it produces.

Sorry didn't really answer your question coz I'm struggling with the same myself.
