I suspect there might be some comments as this is Saverstore (was Savastore, which went bust a couple of years ago), so I waited until I received my lens before posting just to make sure - but this is an absolute bargain.

I got this lens for £477.03 delivered less £14.00 already tracked through Quidco - so a net cost of £463.03.

Same lens is shown as cheapest at £539.99 on camerapricebuster.com, costs £589.99 at Amazon and £649 at Jessops.

The lens was ordered on Friday, dispatched the same day, extremely well packed and couriered next working day to arrive today - and it's amazing quality, comes with Euro warranty stuff, so no signs of it being a grey import either. Even cheaper than the companies shipping from Hong Kong,

It might not be the same lens.

You're right, that link isn't for the same lens. Your link goes to the 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM whereas this deal is for the 15-85mm f3.5-5.6 IS USM.

It's not the same lens - the 17-85 is what I've just upgraded from. It's ok, but (as all the reviews say) it's in a far lower league than the new 15-85.

The 15-85 is on Camera Price Buster at http://www.camerapricebuster.com/Canon_EF-S_15-85mm_f3.5-5.6_IS_USM_pc.html

Lowest price shown is £539.99 at RGB direct - this undercuts it by a tidy £70 + quidco!

You guys are absolutely right. I wasn't aware it was 15-85.

Is it optically better than 17-85?

For £500 budget, would you choose this over Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM??
#8
I have this lens on my 50D and it's great. Paid £550 for it in January on eBay and very happy with it so this is a great deal!

Note it is a EF-S for crop digital's (APS-C sensors) only, so won't fit old EOS film bodies ....

Yes it's much better optically than the 17-85 which is very soft at certain focal ranges.

The 17-40 is sharper and better built, but it has a fairly limited range, especially on a crop body and no IS.

I'd go for the 15-85 any day.

ie: Once you order it from their site, they quickly order it from Canon.

The reviews state it is far better than the 17-85. SaltyCDogg is right about the 17-85 being a little soft.

As for the 17-40L it's in a different market. This lens was originally designed for a Full Frame Canon ie 5D or 1D as a pro lens ie built like a tank, weather sealed (if you put a filter on the front) and fine optics. It will last you years. I had one for 4 years and sold it secondhand for £75 less than I paid for it - L glass holds its value. It can be used on APS sensor equipped bodies such as 7D, 50D, 550D, 500D 450D etc but I would probably stick with the 15-85 as it has more flexibility for your average user ie Image stabilisation and greater range. Overall you would probably end up with more sharp pictures with the 15-85 because of its stabilisation.

Hope that helps

Thanks for explanation Garibaldi. I would now definitely go for 15-85 which will be more useful than other lens.
#14
Now over £700, so I'll expire. I'm very grateful I got mine, really pleased with the lens - would recommend it if you can pick one up cheaply, it's a big improvement on the 17-85

Except Canon wont sell it to them for that price.

Think pricing cartels, think Canon :roll:

5.6? Yikes!

This is a nothingness lens for me. Its neither cheap or anywhere near L series. If you want quality, you'd go prime, if you want a wide angle you'd buy the 10-22mm instead.
