Help - newbie - which "1st" lens?

OK - our local photo store has 40D in stock. Headed there this weekend.

In my "olden" film days, I had a 28-80 (Sigma) and a 135 for my Minolta.

Question: For my "1st" lens, I'm looking at the Canon 17-85 IS.

OR, the Tamron 18-250.

OR, I'm really open to suggestions.

For my "1st" one, it needs to be that general, all-purpose, walking-around lens. I'll add others later. (Also, opinions on that path appreciated, as well.)

(This one is for real. I've been lurking here for months - great info from you guys. Thanks - it's been fun reading. Now, I'd appreciate some opinions.)
