I see nothing wrong with EF-S lenses. UNLESS you plan to buy a 5D. Even then you can always sell one or two lenses.
I lOVE my Canon EF-S 17-55 F/2.8 IS USM. It's a bad example because of the price and quality but for most people EF-S lenses are fine. The 18-135 and 18-200 are good versatile lenses. Not the best IQ but that's not the most important thing to some people. They are good enough to post on FB or share or even print.
Don't get me wrong......I am all for IQ but a lot of people are looking for "all-around" lenses they don't need to change often and decent IQ. Some EF-S lenses will get the job done.
