I have heard some good things about the Tokina 24-200 zoom. It probably doesn't focus as smoothly as the Canon 28-135 USM IS and lacks image stabilization but the price is certainly attractive. Has anyoneused one as a walk around lens?

... if your goal is to eventually get a 20D, then IMO I'll look @ an f/2.8 as a minimum

Here's commodoredon's first (and so far only) post, touting the virtues of this lens.

BTW this is one of those rare lenses that maintains focus while zooming. Can't say the same about the 28-135 USM IS though

"Like the rest of the lenses in the AT-X series, The AT-X 242 AF is what is commonly referred to as a parafocal lens, meaning when focus is achieved at a telephoto focal length, it is possible to zoom back to a wide angle and maintain focus on the subject."
