It will need to be sharper than the 17-55IS if its going to feed those tiny pixelsites on the 7D. The preview shots Ive seen of the 7D with the 17-55IS look really soft....but only when pixel peeping. But would it be sharper than an upscaled 50D? I doubt it with the current lenses out.

This lens looks perfect for me, currently have the 18-55 IS kit lens and really feel the need for a bit more length on either end. Was going to go for the 17-85 but it doesn't seem like there's too many fans out there.
Will wait for reviews etc. but am very interested!

from what I see on warehouse express you can preorder them .... and they cost only double in UK !!! well... let's see who it's going to pay £529 for the 18-135 and £849 for the 15-85 !!

on other sites they quote the same pricw as in the US ... only that with the £ sign ... so this one for £799 ... that's crazy!

You wonder how the Ebay hood companies stay in business. Wait, no I don't. I know why business is very brisk for them.

not really sure what that means. are you saying this is ebay like cheap company, are you saying the hood is a knock off, are you saying that is expensive? what are you saying? i don't know how to comment on that.

$40 is not expensive or cheap..just retail style price. im most certain these are canon products.

What I am saying is the Canon hoods are 100% complete ripoffs, which in turn keeps the ebay hood sellers in business.

...or put into perspective, a hunk of genuine Canon plastic (aka Hood), is approx half the price of a Canon Nifty Fifty :mad:

Not quite sure how they justify that (but then again, I guess they use genuine Canon air in their extenders too) ;)

Yeah but the Dark Side lenses are more expensive... so even if their hoods are cheaper, your total cost in the end is... the same

This lens in a kit with a 7D sounds very interesting. I guess I'll have to wait and see some detailed reviews and comparisons before I make my decision.

OMG :D this lens in Lithuania (EU) is 2600LTU (£650)...the 17-55 f2.8 is about 3400LTU (£850) ...now that is interesting...so basically it means that for the money that you spend in UK buying 15-85, you can buy 17-55 f2.8 in Lithuania....that's probably the first time ever that something is cheaper in Lithuania than in UK :D
