i'm looking at upgrading to a 7D (from sony), but am tossing up on which zoom lens to get. i've read reviews on both, but still can't decide. i do mostly portraiture and weddings.
EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM
a local photog recently said to always invest in L series, but the IS on the other lens sounds tempting. has anyone used one, or preferably both? there's not too much difference in the price, and would rather pay the extra for the better lens, if necessary.
currently i have a sony mount tamron 17-50 and i sometimes do shoot at 17mm, but mostly for joke "big head"/distorted shots, so range isn't a big issue, i'd imagine either would be fine in that respect.
i'll also be getting a 50 1.4 as well (not L, too poor for that baby).
