60d with "L" lens or 7d with standard efs
#9
[quote name='popo' timestamp='1290760508' post='4458']

As owner and user of 7D + 15-85 that is a combination I find very useful in a variety of situations. It has the widest angle possibility of the shortlisted lenses and I find the AF in it quite nippy. Personally I'm not a fan of the zoom restricted f/2.8 standard lenses, preferring to go big aperture prime where needed, for example you can throw in a 50mm f/1.8 for not a lot extra.

I tend to agree with popo. After a while, I have come to find the 17-55 rather frustrating to use despite its almost flawless optics. Not wide enough, not long enough, bulky,heavy, poorly built... and had I kept my EOS, I would certainly opt for the 15-85 with perhaps a fast prime next to it.And why not an L prime.



Consequently, IMHO, 17-40 is just a waste of time. Even shorter, slower, non stabilised, really not my cup of tea. And I wouldn't even regard it as an "investment" for later full frame projects either.



I would probably go 60D + 15-85 as there is a fair chance I'd want to go full frame later (reasonably or not, this desire will come <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' /> ). So let's not shell out too much money on a crop camera, should we <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />



Hope I'm not making it too despairing.
