I have yet to experience the full potential of my 17-85 IS lens. Would I be duplicating, in some way, what I have in 17-85 if I were to buy 10-22 lens?
Do the capabilities of these two overlap somewhat? Is buying 10-22 lens money well spent, given I already own the 17-85?

I had the 17-85 before I upgraded to the 17-55, and I brought the 10-22 and 17-85 for Sicily/Amalfi last December. I found myself using the 10-22 for the 17-22 range unless I need IS. The 10-22 is sharper and exhibits much less barrel distortion. I don't use the wide-end of the 17-85 unless I need IS.

you'd have some overlap but that is actually a good thing. a few MMs on the wide end are MUCH MORE dramatic than on the long end.

these are two very different lenses. the only question in my mind is do you really want an UWA lens?

they aren't for everyone :D.

You couldn't be any more right..!! The few MMs at the wide angle truly gives dramatic results. And I checked sample images with this lens on pbase, especially at 15 and lower MMs; some of them simply take your breath away. It also challenges one to be more creative.

I am convinced: this is THE lens to have for landscapes and streetscapes.

Thank you all.
