Just about to pull the trigger on a 7D. Not sure whether to get the 15-85IS as a kit, or the 17-55IS as a walkaround lens.
The 15-85 is getting good feedback, and I think I would appreciate the increased reach - my previous walkaround was a 24-105. But the f2.8 on the 17-55 is a lot faster than the f5.6 on the 15-85. Costwise if I go for the 17-55 I'd buy from kerso so the overall cost would be similar to a UK 15-85 kit, around £1700 for body+lens.
Has anyone already made the choice between these lenses? any images that would show the relative loss of reach?
I'd eventually have a couple of primes for low light/indoor stuff. Probably canon 85/1.8 and the sigma 30/1.4.
