I think two lenses would handle a lot of what you want to do.  The 17-55 f2.8 lens for your walk around and the 70-200 f4 IS for zoom.  The longer one is L but the zoom has the clarity that is very close to L glass, but the build quallity is not quite as good IMHO. The caution is if you think you will eventually go FF, then the 17-55 only works on crop, but it is a terrific lens for crop.

Flash is helpful in some circumstances, and opening lens wide open will give very shallow DOF.
