So I have a Canon 50D with the 28-135mm kit lens. I also have a Quantaray 17-200mm, the quality not as good on that one and no IS. I am going to Israel in March and was planning to have the 15-85mm IS Canon lens but my husbands income has been cut and I'm just glad the trip has been paid for at this point.:meh: So my choices are to go with what I have, buy the 15 -85mm on credit from adorama or B&H (this is a trip of a lifetime for pete's sake), go with an affordable prime (like 50mm) that will give me much sharper images but will lack the versatility of range, OR rent some nicer lenses for the trip. Ideas? P.S. Btw, the reason for another range lens is because I like the versatility and the 28mm is nowhere wide enough for me.
