I need to replace my 18-55mm kit lens for my Canon. There was an unfortunate incident while trying to stop my youngest from eating finger paint, and it won't zoom past 35mm without using force, and when I do get it to 55mm, it won't focus.
So I'm just left with my 55-250mm lens, which isn't exactly good for taking to crowded "vacation" type places with me, and I don't really use my point and shoot anymore because I'm too used to my DSLR
My question is, where would you reasonably go next for a replacement for this? My dream is the 24-70mm 2.8L, but that's just not in our budget. This just really craps on my plan, because I really wanted to go prime for my next purchase, but I feel like I need a smaller zoom now.
