Thank you for your insight! I was interested in those lens I previously stated due to the wide variety of shots I could create with them, the 50 mm especially is enticing to me for portraits. What specifically about the 17-55 f 2.8 makes it a great lens? 

Honestly, I consider it a big unnecessary expense.


You will be hard pressed to see improvement in image quality over the EF-S 18-135mm USM. 


Where you need a large aperture to blur the background the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM will be a better choice.


Get the kit lenses you mentioned in your first post, if after a year of shooting with those you feel you need the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS only then go out and buy it.  


Oh and BTW one more vote for the 80D over the 77D.
