Welcome to the forum!

The union between the 7D and a 17-55 IS f/2.8 is a marriage made in heaven! The 17-55 lens is often associated with an "L" status lens because of its optical superiority. You will not be disappointed. :)

The only issue is that you wont be able to carry it over if you switch to Full Frame camera...other then that, its a pretty nice setup.

Welcome to CS! :)
7D + 17-55 is a good match-up :thumbsup:

It is an expensive combo, that's all. Don't need to overspend when you first start out in this hobby. I would prefer to err on the cheap side... ;)

My friend started with that setup. Nothing wrong with it. She's pretty happy with it.
