Pros: Nice build. Very sharp. 15mm is nice. No lens creep. Perfect with my 7D.
Cons:
It is expensive. It is slow.

This is absolutely the lens I have been looking for. Thank You Canon. At one point I owned a 17-40L, then a Tamron 17-50 f2.8 - got rid of them both. 17-40L very very soft in the corners (and that's on a crop camera), couldn't depend on focus for the Tamron. The 15-85 takes care of both of these problems - I am very impressed with the build and sharpness of this lens. It has silent and dependable focus, it is just the right weight and size and the IS works. It will stay on my 7D. I think I will buy some red pinstriping . . .

Got mine on Ebay.

BTW - I haven't seen anyone anywhere mention this web site:

These guys have great lens reviews - they really no what they are talking about - and they really like the 15-85
