Canon EF 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens
The Canon EF 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM is a very attractive do-everything lens for Canon's 1.6x ("APS-C") cameras.
It covers the same range as a 24-135mm lens would cover on a full-frame camera, this is the range you need in 90% of travel photography. It has Image Stabilization (IS) providing up to a 4-stop compensation for image blur caused by camera shake at slow shutter speeds, you may grab the focus ring at any time for instant manual-focus override, and it focuses super-close, eliminating the need for a separate macro lens.
The Canon EF-S 15-85/3.5-5.6IS USM is a replacement for the original EF-S 17-85/4-5.6IS USM and it offers a number of improvements:
Since this is a variable max aperture zoom, you have to keep an eye on your shutter speed and ISO levels, especially if you constantly zoom in towards the telephoto end. By 50mm, this lens can only offer you f/5, which is on the slow side of things. Even the cheap EF 50mm f/1.8 II would be a better choice for indoor portraits.
