this seems like a real good deal. I already have a 17-85 lens. Is the STM lens really worth the extra $210
(+ tax for me) with the Amazon and BH deal?
I was asking the same thing, until I looked at my local CL. The resale value is definitely more than what you're paying at retail in the kit. In my case, I have no need for it so I'd sell it.
If you're going to keep it, its a good lens relative to its price and intended uses. I'd say it shines best when recording video, but it's still images are good. I'm not a fan of the basic kit lens, so this will give you a much better range and improve the quality of videos. If you're not planning on shooting video, it may not be worth it for you.
