Just curious on what lens (singular) you guys would choose for walkaround such as street, regular photos and landscape?

EDIT: On a crop body.

If I am travelling, the 24-105. When I had a crop body it was the 15-85.

Cropped or full frame?

For full-frame, the 24-70 or 24-105 would be good. You won't be able to get the super wide angle 16 or 17mm that'll you get, but you get to carry one lens.

For cropped, you could do the 17-55 f/2.8. If you don't mind a slower lens, the 18-200 could work as well.

All about compromises.

For Full Frame, street photos are great with Super wide angle, hence my 16-35 f/2.8L II stays 90% of the time on my 5D III
when I had a 40D and 50D crop, I had the 10-22 lens on there a LOT

another 24-105L here (on the 40D & 7D). 15-85 would be a good, secondary option; which didn't exist when I was purchasing the 24-105, and I'd probably have skipped since I prefer to have a constant aperture whenever possible. But, that's a minor, personal nitpick on my end.
