Starting over digital with a EOS 70D, need lens suggestions.

I started out taking photographs with a brownie, then an Argus C3, a Miranda Senorex, bought a Cannon F1 and an EF and then film went south.

My most advanced digicam so far was a Sony V3 that died from a broken shutter button.  I learned that I don't like itty bitty sensors.  I missed depth of field control.

I think it is time to go DSLR.  I've decided that the 70D is a good place to start.  Now I need to decide on a collection of lens.

I like macro photography, wildlife photography, shooting aviation photos and if I can take family photos w/o blinding everyone with flash, that would be a plus since these new camera are a lot faster than Tri-X.

To get a general all round kit put together, what lens should I look at?  They don't have to be Cannon if they are good performers.

Thanks,

Szumi
