Totally agree, sell the 11-22 to help pay for the 12-60. You'll love the 12-60mm just as much.

Re: Which lens?

An alternative would be to keep what you have and get a 14-54. A wonderful, under-rated lens in my humble onion, and cheaper than the bulkier 12-60.

I agree with Stephen, I would get a secondhand MK1 14-54mm lens for about 200.

I Third that, keep your current lenses and get a 14-54, then you would have a great line up for any occasion
