In my opinion the 18-55mm STM , 55-250mm STM and 40mm STM are three perfect lenses for any SL1 kit.

Yep. That 17-55 will look and feel ridiculous on the SL1.

Again, I still think the 17-70mm Sigma would have been a better choice, it ticks all the needs and I believe isn't any bigger than the 17-55mm. Either way, you've already bought it, I'm sure she'll be fine with it (aside from the want for more reach, since I believe you indicated that was one of her issues with the 18-55mm).

Her issue with the 18-55 was it was on the EOS M. If you talking about the kit lens, for a relatively new user she could tell a vast difference in sharpness (so she says). I mean its an unfair comparison to my 6D and 24-70 which I tried to explain to her. Even at f 2.8 I don't think the crop sensor will let in nearly as much light as my 6d combo. I think its about 1 stop difference correct?

Agreed.

I don't think so. http://camerasize.com/​compact/#448.303,448.3​77,ha,t (external link) Really not a huge difference from the kit lens. (see Link)

not only is the 17-55 significantly longer, it's 3x heavier, which makes it too front heavy....

Ill let everyone know what she thinks tomorrow when I have the SL1. (I wanted her to get the 70D I might just get my wish if she doesn't like the balance.)

I personally don't think it will be that bad. The T3i is only 560kg so this isn't much lighter and I 've seen plenty of people using this lens.

You would already be holding the lens one way or another, so the front end weight really doesn't matter.

Agreed.

plus the T5i is only 580kg so this isn't much lighter and I 've seen plenty of people using this lens.

In terms of exposure, no. f/2.8 is f/2.8, it doesn't matter what the sensor is, the exposure will be the same. As for DOF, it will be greater on crop then it would on FF at the same aperture.

As for sharpness, there's definitely an advantage with FF. The advantage is less obvious with a camera with no AA filter though, like a Fuji X-trans camera or if I remember right, Sony Exmore sensored camera.

Do you realize that "only" 580 kg is over half a ton? :)

I don't have a cropper anymore, but when I did, my reticence to sell that last one crop body was the fault of that 17-55 2.8 ... i just loved using that lens. I still miss it!
I keep thinking the Tamy 24-70 2.8 VR would replace it on my 5DM3 and 1DM3 ... but it would have to be a good one to do so ...

I recently sold my 18-135mm STM because it just didn't feel right to me when used on the SL1.

Wow, really? I have not heard that complaint before. Seriously. My experience with the 18-135 STM has been just opposite. I have found it to be the perfect consumer lens for the SL1. It's glued to the camera. Perfect size and weight.

My "other" kit includes the 5D3 with a variety of L lenses - none of which feel good on the SL-1.

I've owned the 17-55 f/2.8. Too big and too heavy for the SL1. And the 15-85 test results and opinions on forums suggest it's pretty close in image quality to the 18-135 STM. The 18-135 STM also has a range much more suitable to a walk around lens.
