Iv been looking at the 15-85mm now hoping to buy, but iv also seen the 18-135mm... does anyone own the 18-135mm as i would really like to see the difference between the two lenses?

Any advice wouldnt go a miss either?

Thanks

Chris

Its your final decision but from the research i have seen the 18-135 for $400 + is not even better then the 18-55 IS kit lens:

18-135mm IS - 15-85mm IS USM

Best New Lens
Winner: TS-E 17 f/4L
Runner-up: EF-S 15-85 f/3.5-5.6 IS USM

Oh how fun is that 17mm Tilt-Shift? Tons! Canon’s new tilt-shifts, especially the 17mm set the benchmark again for these types of lenses. Image quality, build quality and useablity are second to none. A job well done.
The 17-85 sure needed to be upgraded as a kit lens. The 15-85 is a well built and very good performer on the 7D. You immediately notice the build quality and heft of the new lens when you pick it up. I’ve used it and really think it’s worth the price.

Worst New Lens
Winner: 18-135 IS

Zzzzz….
