Well...I decided to go with the 24-105. I chose it because I got such a good deal on it.

Indeed!!
I think when you get your lens dont begin to pixel peep and just shoot. Either lens will leave you wanting more if you begin to analyze and break it down. Enjoy your new toy!!

Those crops from the 15-85mm are laughable. I think it's either a bad copy or user error. I've shot thousands of shots with my 15-85mm over the last two years and I've never seen anything like that.

Choosing between these two lenses is a nice luxury to have, regardless of your choice. You can't go wrong, really.

If it turns out to not be for me or I do need something wider, I can always sell it for more than I paid for it. With the 15-85, the price was the same as all of the other 15-85's, so if I were to sell it, I'd probably lose money. I felt like the 24-105 is a no risk situation and a lens I'd always be left wondering about if I hadn't bought it. I see 15-85's all of the time for that price, but rarely get a 24-105 for this price. It should be here Friday...I'm looking forward to it!

congrats, i would've done the same

Enjoy the lens Taylor - you will have fun with it :D.

The build quality is excellent and the constant f/4 aperture is a pleasure. It has a nice positive locking substantial hood that works well and the IS is very usable when the situation demands.

Congrats on that deal, then! My 24-105 is my second, most loved lens and I just can't imagine being without it now. :)

Assuming its in equally good shape, with a price so close to the 15-85 it would have been a tough call even for those of us who prefer the 15-85. If you ever go FF, you're all set. If you really miss going wider than 24mm there is always the possibility of a Canon 10-22 mm lens somewhere in your future. The build of the 15-85 is very good, but is not the same as an L lens. Enjoy it.
