Thank you.

    You did not mention your price range, so I'd recommend these two expensive and excellent lenses:
    Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens
    Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens

    Hello Lamson and friends,

    I have a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 Non-VC lens. Would that be a good one as a replacement for the Canon Ef-S 17-55mm f/2.8?

    Also what are your thoughts on the Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS and Non-IS?

    Thank you,
    Phanindra G.V.

    I can't speak for the Tamron because I've never used it. I own the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 (purchased used for $800) and it's the one I currently use for landscape and architecture. It has great image quality.

    I also own the Canon EF 35mm f/2, non IS version. It's a great little lens, but maybe not wide enough for some architecture shots.
