I see Sigma do a 24-135mm f2.8-4.5. Would this be a good walkabout lens for my 350D? It seems to be in the ranges that I want, and stops down to 2.8 at the wide end (which I would generally use indoors for non flash photos). I can't find any reviews of this lens so perhaps someone can point me in the right direction or give me the benefit of their experience with this lens. Thanks.

Since you already have a 75-300mm, I would go with one of the lens recommended earlier instead:

-> The difference between 70/135 is not that great (plus you can crop), but the difference between 24mm and 17/18 makes a bigger impact on the resulting images!
