I am glad you like it, the shots are solid, but I can't help but think it would have to be exceptional for me to leave the mkiii at home... and I'm not sure what I saw there is what I would call exceptional.

The only f2.8 lens I shot at f8 and f11 was 16-35 f2.8 II.
1. 50L @ f1.4 - f1.6 only
2. 85L II @ 1.2 - 1.6 only
3. 40pancake @ f2.8 or f5.6 only
4. 24-70 II + 70-200 most of the time @ f2.8, sometime f5.6
Another option I would consider is an EF-S 85-300mm F4-5.6 IS STM. With light weight and price down to $ 350 would be a perfect match for 15-85mm, and I would buy.
Most people don't realize how much better lenses like the 70-200's are than the kit lenses, we fanatics and gear-heads are in the minority.when I was in the market for a 70-200, f2.8L, either one, someone tried to convince me that the 18-200 is all the lens I would ever need and any improvement in image quality wasn't noticeable in real world application and certainly didn't justify the price.
Oh okay, I really don't want to get a new body only because the fact my husband bought it for me as a gift and I really hate to make him feel bad. So I am going o use it for awhile then Ill move up . Thank you!!
Very true, I really hate having to stand really far back with the 50mm but i love it for newborns and toddler portraits. I know i wouldnt be able to use the 17-55mm on a full body, but I wont be upgrading to a FF anytime soon. I do need to find a place to rent a lens and get a feel for what I like. Any suggestions on lens rental places??
24mm on a crop body camera is equilant to 38mm on a full format camera. A nice focal length, but not very wide. If you plan to stick with APS-C for awhile, I recommend the EF-S 15-85 or 17-55 2.8. Both are L quality optically and will be wide enough for landscapes and group shots.
