    I have a Canon XTi and a Canon 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 lens. I'm taking a trip to San Diego / Mexico, will probably do the Zoo, beaches, Sea World, etc.

    I was looking at:

    Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/419582-REG/Sigma_669101_17_70mm_f_2_8_4_5_DC_Macro.html

    or

    Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/351548-GREY/Canon_9517A002_EF_S_17_85mm_f_4_5_6_IS.html

    I'm really unsure but I just want a little more versatility out of my camera. Looking for something under $600.

    Thanks for any help? :x:

    you should probably rent a telezoom for your trip.

    70-200 or 100-400

    EF 28-135 IS. Sure its not much on the wide end, but it'll give you excellent IQ and the IS is alway a plus and you can pick it up barely used for ~300.
