Am I one of the neighbors who always bothers you with questions about lenses? At least I only bother you during the Haftorah.
I'm looking for a "beyond the kit" lens. Another neighbor just lent me his Canon EF 50/1.4 which I used at a no-flash event. Looking at the photos I took, I've decided I'd trade off a slightly narrower aperture (but would still work for no-flash situations) for a bit of a zoom-range. Something like a 24-55/2.8. I can't find such a beast in the Canon brand or in your list that's in the 50/1.4 price range.
If nothing like that exists, I'll probably get the 50/1.4, but that really won't replace my kit lens. Any ideas, especially with the other brand lenses?
Sorry Harry, the beast you're looking for doesn't exist in the price-range of a 50/1.4.
Your best bet is to pick up a 35/2 ($299) and/or a 50/1.8 ($99). They're not zooms, so you'll have to move around a bit more, but such is life unless you want to spend far more for an f/2.8 zoom.
