I went 10-22, 17-55, and 70-200/4L IS. 15-85 wasn't available back then.

If I was "upgrading" from a 15-85, I'd be wanting to bring the 70-200 with me all the time. Hence, something like the 70-200/4L IS vs. a heavier 70-200/2.8L IS.

Having a 15-85 could mean you leave the 70-200 home more often if you want to travel light.

So if I had a 15-85 at the beginning, I wouldn't sell it when buying a 17-55. I'd keep both of them, hence making this exercise not an upgrade situation.

i sold all my EF-S lenses
only 2 remain the 60mm macro and the kit lens 18-55 with the 60D
and i had some L lenses with other EF lenses
from now i will buy only EF lenses to get ready for the real upgrade to FF bodies

what body are you on now? i thought you finally stopped swapping with the 5dII...

17-55 2.8 and 15-85 are not upgrades or downgrades to each other. They are meant for different purposes. One for low light, one for general purpose use.

Is the purchase of the 17-55 and 15-85 ?
