I have been reading these forums for some time now.
You Guys & Gals seem to be the most Knowledgeable and Helpful that I have seen!
I am finally going SLR .. From an Olympus C-5050 Zoom.

The Camera that Iplan ongetting is the Canon 30D.
I know very little about SLR.
I am thinking on one of these lens.

EF-S 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM

EF 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 USM

The type of pictures I take.
On a trip: Scenery, Buildings and Night Pictures( typical tourist Pictures :-))
People pictures .. A lot of my grand daughter & our whole family.
Yes action shots of grand daughter.

The closestpictures I takemaybe 3 to 4 feet away.
Yes there will be times I won't be able to use a flash or the person may be to far away for the flash.

I would like an all around lens for now. ( Up to around $600 )
Then in time I may add a good telephoto lens.

Any help or suggestions will be deeply appreciated helping me to pick a lens.
