    I have been told my many of you guys to get a tamron 28-75 or a 70-200 F4 and I would be happy with those lenses.

    you'll like the 70 200. you may find the 28mm not to be wide enough on a 1.6x crop body. the Canon 17 40 f/4.0L or Tamron 17 50 f/2.8 is worth looking at, also.

    yea they are probably good enough. ive never used them though. 28-200 mm is a pretty good coverage of the focal ranges, but u might want to pick up a faster lense to for working in lower light conditions. a 50mm is the obv choice, but i prefer to work with something wider.

    i agree with this. if u can afford it the 17-40 f4L is a nice piece of glass. great for landscape work.

    you will really appreciate being able to go that wide at times.

    That class of 70-300's is total complete shit.

    You will hate it.

    I'd get the Tamron 17-50, 70-200 f4.

    Later if I'd get a 85 1.8 to supplement your 70-200 f4

    OR

    10-22 if you'd rather go UWA.

    17-55 2.8 USM IS + 70-200 f4 L would be a great combo for ~1500 and cover nearly everything. Though I know you're on a budget so I dunno. Just my .02

    I was rocking a 10-22 and a 70-200 for the longest time, although I never shot much midrange, but when I did I had the kit lens and the 50 1.8 :hs:
