Agree with many:

- 55-250 IS - great image quality for the buck;
- or if you insist on a single lens solution, 18-135 STM is a decent lens;
- for indoor shots, a good flash is a must. Learn to bounce the light properly.

My first purchase was the 10-22. LOVE the lens and use it all the time.

I agree the 55-250 may be your best bet. I have one....however.....

Consider the 100mm F/2.8 It's a bit more expensive and a bit heavier but It would give you about 2X the reach you have now, great IQ, better low light performance with the fixed 2.8, and a macro lens. It's a great lens and macro opens up a new way to look at things. It's a whole new world to explore with a macro lens, plus it's great for regular stuff too.
