The 17-55 is approaching 13 years and it does not have the wide acceptance of the 100-400L.

The dedicated crop product cycle seems to be shorts all around.

Of course, with Canon... You never know!

They're not going to discontinue service on a current lens....maybe if it gets replaced they will...but age alone isnt a reason to discontinue service...

Op, after reading this whole thread, i think you just need to shoot with what you've got more, the lenses arent holding you back

I agree with you.

I went out yesterday and shot some more with the 15-85 and am coming to the conclusion that for what I do it's really a nice lens. I'll post a couple of images later for CC.

Just jpeg I'm afraid. It in the very first menu. Of course you can also fix vignetting in PP. and, if you use Canon's DPP software its applied to raw files as well.

Too bad. I shoot RAW so that means that I have to do it in Lightroom during post. I enable it anyway but guess it doesn't affect anything on the RAW images.

It makes a big difference with the 15-85.

Here are some images I took the last two days with the 15-85.

I dunno, they look pretty good to me but maybe you guys with the eagle eyes can CC them. Look sharp to you? They are nothing fancy to be sure, just snap shots for the most part.

I did have to add profile correction to all of them in Lightroom as the vignetting in the corners and some distortion was fairly bad looking. But maybe that is just what needs to be down with this lens.

Look fine to me. If you're happy with them, don't let other people tell you they're not good. It's what I call "POTN-ophobia": the fear that someone, somewhere, has a sharper lens than you.

(Is that the marina and ferry in Edmonds? I was just out that way last week visiting a friend.)

I agree.

Lens sharpness isn't even that important in the two photos that the OP posted, because the detail is coarse, not fine, and coarse details sharpen up quite nicely in post processing.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Well done. -?

Actually it was the spelling police.

And, speaking of hijacking, it looks like someone hijacked Bassat's avatar.

The word coarse was not spelled incorrectly. In fact its usage was a grammatical error.

The word "coarse" is an adjective meaning "rough" etc. The word "course" is a noun. The noun "course" can mean several things, including path, playing field, mode of behavior, etc.

So no it was not a spelling error but an error in grammatical usage.

Try and keep up boys!

This thread turned to garbage but that's normal around POTN.
