cam the klutz struck recently and even though I only dropped my lens a little it broke a lot. It was a Canon 17-85 which I had quite liked but I see it getting a bit of a shellacking in some threads.
I have a 70-200 2.8 which is great and a 50 1.8 that has yet to grow on me and need a wider lens. Budget-wise I've narrowed it down to either a Canon 17-40 L or a Sigma 17-50 f2.8 OS.
The Sigmas extra stop appeals more than the stabilisation as i take photos inside of my boy and people climbing and outdoors in dim environments when mountain biking.
The Canons weather sealing and more robust nature appeals in a different way.
I've decided each way several times and Mr Taxman will be giving me money soon, any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
