Rumors about general porpouses lenses for APS-C
« on: September 29, 2012, 10:54:59 AM »
Dear all of you,
I am a 7D owner and I am waiting to deal for a new lens, a stadard one like 15-85 ("f/ is not good" bla bla bla) but I need one compact for trips.

Do you think that Canon will develop any new lenses for new APS-C rumored bodies in the near future?
If not I'll make a Christmas present with ol'15-85.

Thanks in advice !

There are three excellent lenses for crop, the 10-22mm, the 15-85mm, and the 17-55mm.  They pretty well cover the wide to short telephoto range.  There is also the 18-200mm which is not spectacular, but does cover a wide range.  We keep hearing rumors of a newer version.
The 40mm EF is also excellent on crop bodies and low cost.

17-55mm 2.8 Is worth the extra $$$.

I loved my 17-55, but sold my crops and the lens.  When I repurchased, I bought the 15-85 because it matched the zoom range and MFD I needed. 
Both of them are well worth their price.

The 18-55mm kit lens is compact.  If you want more compact, consider a prime like the 40/2.8 or 35/2.  If you want good optics, and want a zoom, it's not going to be 'compact' (although that's relative - my 24-105L is quite compact compared to the 28-300L I sometimes carry as a general purpose zoom).  IMO, the best general purpose zoom for APS-C is the 17-55/2.8, followed closely by the 15-85/3.5-5.6.

Yup!
Fantastic answers! Thanks a lot. I have the 18-55 IS II but it's not a blasfemy choice: I am waiting for the
upgrade to 15-85 (becouse I need some extra zoom...).

Maybe a 15-85 mk II......................? Never rumored that?

People always forget about the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 OS HSM. Sharp, fast, cheap. And was released in a brand new version in these days ;)

Since it is a almost new lens that recently came out, do not expect a new version soon.  7 or 8 years from now, maybe.

I had the Siggy 17-70. It's a funny bird. It's mid FL's are decent but it's widest and tele ends are super corner soft and if you really want a great lens other than the 15-85 go for the 17-55 like the rest said. It like the 10-22 is 'L' like in many ways. Another great crop walk around is the Sigma 17-50. Sharp end to end. If you like Primes, try the 40 pancake, best on a FF but you might like the equivalent 64mm length. It didn't work for me on my 7D but you might like it. Best bang for the buck in Canon's lineup iyam.
