I have $700 or a new standard zoom lens for my Canon 40d and I'm having trouble deciding which lens to buy. I was looking at several reviews for the canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens but that seems to be a little bit over my price range.
I was wondering what reliable and promising standard zoom lens would be best to buy. Ive had the canon 70-200 non IS before, but sold that recently because I really need a lens that is better for standard shooting and walk around shoot/people photography for my internship.
If anyone has any comments, suggestions, or advice, that would be greatly appreciated.
