I review the Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens, which is a great upgrade from the standard Canon kit lens that offers a fairly wide focal length range, crisp optics and good build quality. I’ve used this lens for nearly a year and have shot over 2500 photographs with it so I wanted to share my experiences with this lens and give you an idea of how this lens works in everyday shooting situations. I also show you some images that I’ve shot with the lens to give you an idea of the image quality:
Here are the lens specifications (from Canon USA): Focal Length & Maximum Aperture: 15 - 85mm 1:3.5-5.6 Lens Construction: 17 elements in 12 groups Diagonal Angle of View: 84° 30' - 18° 25' Focus Adjustment: Inner focusing system with USM Closest Focusing Distance: 1.15 ft./0.35m Filter Size: 72mm Max. Diameter x Length, Weight: 3.2 x 3.4 in./81.6 x 87.5mm, 20.3 oz./575g

As far as price goes, the lens is somewhere between $600 and $750 purchased new. If you are looking to purchase used, expect to pay $550 to $600 for a good quality version. As I said in the video, I purchased my lens used for $550.
