So I'm in the market for a new lense for my T3i, I currently have the 18-55mm along with the 75-300mm. I'm looking for a good all around lense that I could use as a walk around lense when I'm out and about and traveling. I've been thinking about picking up EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM. What would you guys reccommend?

Budget? Also depends on what you plan on shooting

Budget?

Don't really want to spend more than $400 and am looking at trying to pick up a used lense.

Canon 18-200mm is a good lens for walkaround and travel. It does not compare to primes or the more expensive lenses but is not nearly as bad as some people would suggest. I have used my nephew's lens. It is a good lens and very convenient for travel. There are thousands of photos at different web sites that you might want to checkout.

It is $399.00 refurbished at Adorama.

Tamron 18-270 is $399.00 at Adorama and most other retailers after mail-in rebate. I know nothing about it.

What's wrong with the 18-55mm?

Why do you need another lens? 18-55 is a nice focal length, and the kit lens really isn't bad. Or do you need something faster, different focal length?

Tamron's 18-270 is a good choice (as is Canon's 18-200)

As an all around walk-a-round lens, the 18-55 is just too short.
The 28-135 is not a good choice on a crop body like the T3i for an all-a-round lens because 28mm isn't very wide and it would be tight indoors or in more cramped spaces.

I like the 28-135 on my 60D, when I need FL without going to the 70-200 2.8. Lots of choices here: 18-135, 18-135 STM, 28-135, 18-200, 15-85, and numerous lenses in this range from Tamron and Sigma. Pick your poison.

Have you checked out the Canon 10-22 ultra wide angle? I have one or my T3i and love it.

Phenomenal quality and would open up a whole new area for you.

I have the 18-55 that came with my T3i and used that constantly and thought it was great, which it is. My 2nd lens was the nifty fifty and was truly amazed at the bokeh it produces, I would say unless you looking for longer range get the nifty fifty, great lens and I find myself needing little pp on the photos it produces. Good luck!

I have the 10-22 and agree with your assessment of it. It is a serious wide-angle tool at 10mm. At 22mm it works nicely as a wide-normal for tight spaces. My only issue with that is that it is way too slow to use w/o flash in most settings. I use a 35 2 on a 5D for such things. Don't remind, most people hate that lens of FF.

The 18-135/200/250/270 superzooms will all be more flexible than the kit lens, though the quality of the pictures they take may not be any better; in some circumstances, they may be worse. If you can save more to extend your budget you would also have some good options with 17-50 f/2.8 zooms from Sigma and Tamron, or the Canon 15-85.

I would have suggested the 15-85 if it weren't for the budget stated :)
