    Should I sell my Canon 28-135mm IS for a 17-55mm IS?

    ...that's not really an upgrade... more of a swap in focal length...

    Yes it's a big upgrade.


    17-55 is faster, and has much greater IQ.


    Good decision.

    Is it worth the 650 I will end up paying? I wish MS Live cashback was still around :-(

    I paid $825 for mine with hood/hoya filter on Ebay.


    You can find them online for 700-800 sometimes.


    I reccomend buying used :)

    Really? I am always worried about someone dropping it or doing something dumb with it then pawning it on ebay.

    Well I usually dont buy lenses on Ebay, but if you keep eye out on POTN or FM you can see their feedback.


    You just request pics of it and from it. Sometimes it's a better deal b/c you know you're getting a good copy.
