Besides my Uni lecturer career, I was a photographer in the 70s, yes, kodakchrome and A1 canons, doing practically all my wildlife thing with FD 200F2.8, 300F:4L (+2X ext) and macro Vivitar 90F2.8 macro
Now I do normally video and photography for timelapses so my biggest output is 4K or 5K. Sold my video gear 2 years ago to enter the DSLR world, two Canon 70D bodies.
Long lens for wildlife, up to near 1500mm with the 70-300L, great lens, by the way...
Landscapes, sunsets, warefalls are done mainly with the 10-22, occasionally use the 18-55, very few times use the fusheye or the 50.
When you read a review the technicallity arises and many of the lens are practically garbage bin candidates, unless they are the 1000$+ units of the brands.
I've thinking a lot if it is justified to change the 18-55 for something better, used, not exceeding the 400$ range but the only decent option available seems to be the 15-85, or getting the 85 from Samyang.
Not having the oportunity to test the 15-85, I've read a lot and some say it is a lot better that the 18-55, others did not notice a big difference and so on, all based on photography, not on video.
I am wondering if someone could give me an advise on the matter.
Thanks in advance
