Would you give up 10-22 & 17-85 to get the 17-55?

Thanks for all the advise. I just picked up the 17-55 this afternoon and it should be here on Tuesday. With all the positive comments plastered all over the internet surrounding this lens I feel like I made the right decision. Now I've got a few weeks until the Discover bill shows up so I should be able to figure out which way to go. As it stands right now the 17-85 & 55-250 are out.

This leaves me with the 10-22, 17-55 & 100-400 which should leave in pretty good shape. I can either add the 85 1.8 or the 70-200 some time down the road.

I think that will be a good kit. I might look at the Tokina 50-135 f2.8 or Sigma 50-150 when comparing with the 70-200 lenses.

Now I'm thinking of trading my 100-400 for a 70-200 which would give me great set up with only three lenses.

I love those three lenses! Great choice!

How many lenses have you been through in the past three weeks? I see your WTS ads all the time.

Can you post a shot with the 100-400, preferably at the 400 end? I am just curious how it looks.

You may want to take a peak at the 50 1.4 and 85 1.8 as well, then you would have the full kit that I lust after.

I hope this change gives you the kit you want.

That's a very nice kit. I have the 70-200 f4 IS and the 100 macro to round out my kit, and, believe it or not, I'm happy with it and not even thinking about another lens (though I wouldn't mind it if some sweet soul out there bequeathed me a 500mm...).

I've got to much time on my hands.

I've been through at least 4 lenses in the last three weeks and am spending way to much time on this site. I'm totally addicted to POTN and may need to check myself into rehab shortly:lol:.

I do believe I'm almost done and my posts will decrease in the For Sale Forum.

I really don't want to get rid of the 100-400. Furthermore, I just read the that extenders do not work well on either of the 70-200's. I thought I might be able to purchase an extender with a 2.8 70-200 and fill the void of the 100-400 but it looks like that will not be the case, so I may need to reconsider.

I do feel very good about the 10-22 and the 17-55 and plan on keeping them for a long time.

Now I need to find lenses that work for swimming events and days at the racetrack. The 100-400 fills the track need but I do not have a lens that works at the pool.

The 85 1.8 interests me very much and might work at the pool. Perhaps I should give that a try before I ditch the big boy.

You've already got a great set of only three lenses! In fact it would be my dream setup on a crop camera.

I would prefer having the gap between 55 and 100 mm over the missing reach of only a 200 mm lens.

That's the only way you can really evaluate these lenses. :D :D ;)

I'd definitely have kept the 10-22, but the 17-85 is not one of Canon's best lenses so I'd get shot of that and save up for the 17-55.

You made the right choice!

Ok Ok, I'm done for awhile. I'll stick with the 10-22, 17-55 & 100-400 for the time being. I will need to find something that will work for my daughter's swim club as the 17-55 won't have the reach and the 100-400 will be to slow. Need to go cheap, 85mm or 100mm I'd guess

Thanks guys. Taking my daughter out for a bike ride today and bringing the camera along.

The 17-55mm is a great lens, but I personally wouldn't give up the 10-22mm. I'm addicted to it!

If you can't keep both however, the 17-55mm is a good compromise, especially with the constant f/2.8.

Is she swimming indoors? Because the 100-400 should be 'sufficiently' fast under good, outdoor light.
