Review Date: Mar 19, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: light weight, very nice colors, fast focusing, great range
Cons:
tend to flare, slow at long focal length

I switched from 24-105L after 3 years of use on 20D.
Actually on an APS-C sensor the 15-85 is quit analogous to the 24-105:
It have almost the same image qualities virtues, but being much more lighter, and feels-like, smaller, making it an ideal walkaround lens.
Very fast focusing, and very good IS.

Light tend to flare in some condition and the fact the hood is not included is a pity.

I got the feeling that I missed a lot using the (GREAT) 24-105L on my 20D. The switch was just great.

Sorry, but I don't miss the 24-105L...
