    honestly the best walk around lens in that range is the 18-55 IS.

    Ditto. Only time i've ever taken it off is in those rare situations where i need a lot more reach.


    On a side note, for 1-200 bucks, you're not going to be able to get anything decent. for 350-400, you can get the best budget lens on the market... or at least the most recommended on OTAP. Tammy 17-50 ftw!

    I love my 24-70L for walk around.

    I know it's an expensive option though and not very feasible for some
