Upgrade for Canon ef-s 15/85 lens

Recommended Posts

I have used my Canon ef-s 15/85 lens on a crop sensor for most of my stock photography. I have been happy with the range, which makes it a good walkabout lens. However, I am begining to have conserns with image quality in all but bright conditions. CA has always been an issue, but i have learned to work arround it.

Has anyone a suggestion for an upgrade?

I have considered 24/105 L, but thought I would loose too much at the wide end. I have 10/22 and 70/200, so may have to consider more lens changing "on the go" .

Thanks in advance for any suggestions and help.

Before I went full-frame, I was using a Canon 40D. I also had the 10-22 like you, and a 55-250, but my main lens was the Canon 17-55 f2.8. Not cheap but a cracking good lens.

MY standard lens on aps-c Canons is the Sigma 17-50 f2.8. It isn't perfect but very rarely have a QC failure and it's cheaper than the Canon equivalent. My workflow is DXO as a raw converter through lightroom to photoshop. Hope this helps.

+1 on the Sigma 17-50, and it is dirt cheap right now.  Beware of Chromatic Aberration, but Lightroom handles it with no problem.

I would suggest looking at the TOKINA 16-28 f2,8.  I've been using mine on a FF NIKON and it is mostly

wonderful.
