The EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens is a perfect example of a lens that attempts to be too much of too many different things and as a result doesn't do much of anything as well as a more limited lens ...

I left my Camera unused for 4 years

How to increase photo file size without resizing?

Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 compatibility with Canon 800D(t7i)

Shutter stucks on manual mode

It sounds like you may have "mirror lockup" enabled. In "Auto" mode, the setting selected for mirror lockup will be ignored. In Manual exposure mode, it will be complied with.

Shutter stucks on manual mode
