hi everyone

i currently own a 10-22 and 70-200mk2 f2.8 and i would like to get a lens to sit between my current two lenses. i mostly take pics of cars that i work on plus pics of people in venues (not clubs etc.) a fair amount of my pics will be taken in sometimes low light conditions however, i do prefer to have faster lenses.

what i have been considering thus far was either the 17-55f2.8 and the 24-70f2.8. the 24-105 dosen't really appeal to me have heard about a new mk2 24-70 but when this will be released is anyones guess.

the camera body i have is a 7d.

anyone have any other recommendations?


EOS 5D MK3 - 24-70 MK2

Does it have to be a Canon lens?

first i welcome you to the forum:D. I would go with the 24-70 it will be awhile before the next version comes out because of the earthquake that happened in japan all stuf is delayed and this would fit you gap perfectly. The only reson i took the 24-105 is becuase with indoors there is not much light so IS helps. Now i would trade my 24-105 for a 24-70. The 2.8 is also helpful and if you can use a flash that would be even better. What ever way you go there both fantastic lens and you like them both. :D

17-55 2.8 if weather-sealing isn't an absolute requirement.

hi everyone, hello to all. weather sealing is not a big concern to be honest i just want excellent image quality. seeing as all my other lenses are canon i've decided to stay with just canon.

The 17-55 2.8 IS has a fantastic reputation in regards to it's IQ capability. Just check out the thread sample for it. If you don't plan on upgrading to a full frame/aps-h camera anytime soon it'd be a fantastic addition to your lens line-up.

17-55, no question. Optical quality is fantastic, it's got your f2.8, with IS you can fight camera shake with shutter speeds as you would have with a 1.8 lens.

I'll also agree with the 17-55.. the wider angle, versus 24 mm will likely come in handy taking close car pics..possibly negating the need to throw on the 10-22.

There's also the 15-85, and although slower than the 17-55.. it has stellar IS and the extra 2mm on the wide end.

if you plan on staying with the crop, 17-55 will not disappoint.

i use the 10-22 specifically for the interior shots, its just the middle ground from 24mm to 70mm which i'd like to cover. there seems to be a strong following for both the 17-55 and 24-70. have no intention going to a ff body happy with the 7d.

Looks like you'll be happy with the 24-70 then. I would go with that as well since you already have an UWA

This. Save the monies and buy something else you can use (or spend it on beer when you begin to question any camera related decision).

17-55 IS hands down. I've upgraded all my lenses except this one and it is the ONLY thing holding me back from moving to full frame.

It won't dissapoint you and it holds its value well (at least in Spain).
