It's tricky as there isn't one perfect lens. You presumably want sharp, a decent range of focal lengths and not to be dreadful in low light.

Ya mostly i'm interested in sharpness and focal length range. I find i use the 15-50ish range quite a bit especially at the wider end around 18-30. It doesn't necessarily have to be low light, just high image quality.

Do you think all these lenses you're mentioning have a better image quality then my current 18-55?

Canon have been doing pretty well in making the kit lenses sharp due to limited zoom range and limited aperture. However I do think it can be improved on. You could play about a bit here...
