    A good kit lens replacement is the Tamron 17-50.

    The 28-135 is a supplement.

    Those two lenses are different focal lengths. You'll loose a lot of wide angle ability with the 28-135.

    I'm torn because I find myself looking for range between the 18-55 and my 70-300...

    get a 17-85 IS, it's a decent lens

    not L quality, but still pretty good

    I had the 28-135 and it a real :ugh: lens. Poor contrast and color, the IS is two generations old and not terribly effective, and it's pretty meh build quality. Get the 17-85mm, it's a far better lens.

    Sigma 17-70 is pretty damn good at what it does

    I'd suggest the Tamron 17-50 though, constant f/2.8 throughout the range and damn good for what it is.

    You lose A LOT on the wide side by starting at 28mm as opposed to 17mm.
