I bought Canon 15-85 for my istambul trip, however I can always send it back, still have till tomorrow, the lens is in perfect condition, no focus problems, sharp all over the frame however I don't wanna be a lens hoarder most important not a kit lenses hoarder
take 750D and
take 10-18 plus 24-105L
take 10-18 plus 18-55 or 17-55 plus 100 macro or 70-300
or take 5D plus 24-105 plus 16-28 or just 24-105
So do you think is it worth keeping this lens ?
Take the 10-18mm plus 15-85mm. Or take the 10-18mm plus 15-85mm plus 100mm macro. The options are endless.
You have a lot of overlapping lenses there! I would probably just take the 15-85, new toy and all.
the story is I bought Canon 15-85 just for this trip, however I feel it would be a waste of money since I have alternatives, do you think I should send it back ?

Tricky, I prefer the ergonomics of the 5d compared to the 760d so would probably go that way. I'm also a bit of wide junky so the 16-35 would be choice 1...however if i was wondering around all day in a strange city the lighter weight and less expensive looking 760d/10-18 would pip the 5d.
I wouldn't worry about which lens to take, you can get great photos with any, just play to the strengths of the one you take and enjoy using it. After All you're not going there to document something like you would with a wedding.
if you just want to take a standard zoom I would probably take the 15-85. The wide end is much wider than the 17-55 and its smaller and lighter too.
Agree, x100t has replaced all that for me for travelling
What did you decide?
I would think the 760d and the 15-85 would be sufficient for the trip. The 760D is ideal with the articulated screen, you can hold the camera in every angle, which comes in handy in narrow streets in the city.
Enjoy the trip and do not overthink your choice.
Major game changer.
my EFS 17-55 F2.8 IS is back from repairs and its focus is now spot on, it has been my preferred since almost ten years now, and I am very used to it.
It is out of question now I leave this lens home, so now it's easy: 10-18 plus 17-55 plus 100mm macro or 70-300 IS
