    I am going to be going on holiday to morocco in a couple fo months. I hope to buy a walk around lens to take along with the 50mm 1.8 (because it weighs about a gram so may as well take).

    I am taking my Canon 1n only and was wondering what walk around lenses people would recommend.

    I have been looking at the
    Canon EF 28-135mm f3.5/5.6 Image Stabiliser USM

    And think that it looks pretty good. The price for that on Jessops is £374.99 so could probably get a bit cheaper. That is the maximum of my budget. So if anyone has any other suggestions I would love to hear them.

    I've heard of that lens making cameras throw error codes. That's what has stopped me from buying it. Unfortunately, I do not have an alternative suggestion if that is the price range you are looking to stay within.

    However, I'm looking to get the 24-105mm f/4L IS lens as my walkaround.

    With your budget, that would be my suggested lens. It's got a pretty usable focal range and IS is a great asset to have for a walk-around lens. It's not all that fast (at F3.5 to F5.6 ), but you will have the 50mm 1.8 for that. They should make a good combination that won't be too heavy or cumbersome.

    Cool. Also there should be alot of light in most places when I'm there so the fact its a bit slower should not matter too much and as you sad i have the 50 mm.

    Yes, quite a bit cheaper if you're willing to buy used. Ffordes have three of that lens at the moment for £269 each. I'm pretty sure it's the same lens ("28-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM").
