^ If you don't like them then don't buy them... Canon is just offering more lenses and gives people more options to choose from.
I personally think the 15-85mm will be perfect for everyday shooting.
I'm not saying I don't like the new EF-S lenses or that I'd buy any of them. Just wondering what Canon is thinking by bringing out a new lens that on the surface is nearly identical to an existing lens but has 65mm less focal length range and isn't much cheaper. Are the potential 18-200mm lens buyers really more interested in an 18-135mm lens that is $100 cheaper?
But your comment brings up another question, is the new EF-S 15-85mm lens going to replace the existing EF-S 17-85mm IS lens? Seems like alot of similarity there too.
