very nice. If I didn't have to pay the mortgage and car loan, I'd order now. Meanwhile, I'll buy a few lottery tickets and if I win........

Question from a newbie here.
Comparing the recent price drop on the M. Are the differences in quality really worth the additional expenses of shifting to a different system sony,fuji,olympus? Considering, that is, if one already has a number of ef lenses.
I have a cheap 3rd party grip for my 70D. It never "hurt" my camera or stopped functioning.
Only problems..shutter button extremely sensitive, goes off if I just brush it against something or lightly touch it
The button labels poorly printed and have rubbed off after a few months.
At some point I may buy the Canon but I can live w/the no name for a while
Keep your 17-85. You seem to be satisfied with it.
If you get a full-frame camera in the future, then buy the full-frame lens at that time. There may be new ones coming, or you might find a deal when it's relevant. But why spend money on a lens that you apparently don't need, for a camera you don't own?
Agreed. The 17-85 is a solid lens. The 15-85 is a step up, but probably not enough to justify the cost. And if you ever go full-frame later, that's money down the drain.
Alternatively, you might wait, save up the extra few hundred bucks, and buy a 6D/24-105L kit. That will do far more for your image quality than any lens upgrade by itself, and it's not a lot more than the eBay prices for the original 24-70 f/2.8 lenses. And the 24-105 is also sharper than the original 24-70 L f/2.8 even when stopped down to f/4, according to LensRentals.
So IMO, the only reason you should even consider the original 24-70 f/2.8 L is if you shoot a lot of sports and really need the f/2.8. Maybe not even then. The increased ISO capabilities of a full-frame body will usually do a lot more for you in terms of usable low-light performance than a single extra f-stop on the lens.
