I was just hoping for some insight into wether or not the Canon 15 - 85mm is really a decent upgrade from the 18 - 55mm kit lens?
As predicted I have quickly outgrown the limitations of my kit lenses. I don't have a whole heap of cash to spare and I think the 15 - 85 is the right choice for me, but I'm not a 100% sure so thought I'd ask here.
I have the 60D and love land and seascapes, macro and general family stuff. I also have the 50mm 1.4 and am about to get the 100mm 2.8 (the best birthday present I've ever gotten).
I know I'll love the extra reach the 15 - 85 will offer, especially with the family stuff but what I am really hoping is that I can use the 15 - 85 for landscapes and seascapes and save myself from craving after a 10 - 20mm for at least a year? I have been thouroughly spoilt this year with my gear and we have a whole heap of plans for the next year so ideally I'd like to not spend any more money for at least a year.
Does anyone use their 15-85 for these types of images?
I have thought about the 24 - 105 but I know that even though I regularly dream about upgrading to a 5DmII or III, in reality it wont happen. We're just not likely to have that much spare cash for quite some time so I don't think I really need to spend the money on FF lenses just yet.
I hope my long winded post makes sense - I just want to make sure I'm making the right decision before I part with my cash.
Thanks for reading and TIA for any replies.
