My friend wants a general multipurpose lens.

if he's looking for a great zoom range that will cover many shooting scenarios on day trips, he should consider the 15-85mm ...

if he's looking for a lower-light photos and/or blurred background portraits, he should consider any one of the 17-5_mm lenses by canon, sigma, and tamron ...

both options are very well regarded ... can't go wrong with either lens ...
