Should I sell my Canon 28-135mm IS for a 17-55mm IS?
...that's not really an upgrade... more of a swap in focal length...
Yes it's a big upgrade.
17-55 is faster, and has much greater IQ.
Is it worth the 650 I will end up paying? I wish MS Live cashback was still around :-(
Have you guys seen any good deals on this lens?
I paid $825 for mine with hood/hoya filter on Ebay.
You can find them online for 700-800 sometimes.
I reccomend buying used
Really? I am always worried about someone dropping it or doing something dumb with it then pawning it on ebay.
Well I usually dont buy lenses on Ebay, but if you keep eye out on POTN or FM you can see their feedback.
You just request pics of it and from it. Sometimes it's a better deal b/c you know you're getting a good copy.
I think I will look into it, if I could get one for 700 i'd be in for one.
Yea that's a rare find
Are you in the AF?
i've seen one posted a couple times on my local cl for 700 and 650 once when i guess he was getting desperate.
Too bad the CL in my area are either a bunch of hicks/or methed out slags who PROBABLY don't have this lens..
have you looked at the Tamron 17-50?
Ya, but I want the USM/IS
