    Hi,
    Normally I have observed that most people say a lens 24/28 - 70/75 as walk around lens. I do have one like that from Tamron.
    I am planning to travel to Cairo and may have an opportunity to photograph pyramids. I do not have budget to go for a new lens from my available options Canon kit 18-55 and Tamron 28-75 f2.8 which one will be a better choice?
    Thanks
    Ketan

    My vote would be for the Tamron; it's at least a full stop faster than your kit lens wide open and two stops (I belive at full zoom). That will be very useful in low-light situations. You're losing some wide-angle with the tamron, but gaining on the tele end, the wide-angle end can often be made by shooting panos, but nothing makes up the tele end if you don't have it.
