Sort of a rhetorical question: any guess as to why Canon's price of the 17-55 has dropped so much? It's only $80 more than the 15-85 now.

I was wondering why myself. I wonder if Canon has a newer updated version on the way?

I have a 15-85mm but I am considering buying a 17-55mm as my low light/indoor lens. I had a prime lens and sold it. I just like the versatility of a zoom, especially indoors.


Canon 60D / EF-S 17-55mm 2.8 / EF 70-200mm 2.8 L II / EF-S 18-135mm STM / 600EX Flash

this time of the year brings great cloudy skies and sometimes great sunsets, yesterday I grabbed my camera and walked down the road, just around the corner:

Bianchi, I'm impressed to no end by your aligning the roof lines of the huts with the horizon!

Very nice shot marcwilliams88, it has a bit of a 1960's feel to me with those colors. Was that a stitched panoramic?

Yes, it's a two shot pano, each shot is a 3 stacked HDR exposure taken behind welding mask glass... you can find a post on how to over at my blog... (external link)
