Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art as an f/2.8 equivalent aperture, but it's only 56mm long, not 70 or even 100mm.

The range might be lacking, but the light gathering is great, and on crop it's the sharpest zoom at it's focal range.

You could add the el cheapo EF 50mm f/1.8 stm, which is stopped down to f/2.8 (kinda f/4.0 equivalence) reasonably sharp, to get 80mm.

WIth the ef-s 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM you will have more reach, however, wide open it won't be really sharp. It's a sharp lens but it needs some stopping down.  This lens has IS, which is a great benefit when shooting static objects.

I love 50mm (equivalence)
