| p.1 #13 · Canon 15-85 or Tamron 17-50 VC |
I replaced my 18-55 kit with the 15-85, after much debate. I'd narrowed my upgrade down to the 15-85, 17-55, or Sigma 30. In the end I went with the 15-85 because it has the range, and the 17-55 was too pricey. Now, I'm finding that there are times when I'd prefer more control over DoF than I have, and I'm thinking again about adding the Sigma 30 to my lineup.
If he's happy with the focal length of the 50 for times when larger apertures are desired, then the 15-85 is a great choice. Otherwise, it would be worth reconsidering the Tamron.
the sigma 30 is an awesome lens if you find the right copy BUT in terms of DOF its not the best portrait lens but a great low light walk around.
