One of the most important things to have in you camera bag are lenses which can cover a wide variety of subjects.  There are many choices out there, but let's concentrate on the most commonly used focal lengths you will need.  And some situations that you may need them for.

Wide Angles

A good range for the wide angle is 24mm to 35mm for a full frame camera (digital or film).  For a APS-C crop sensor you will want to cover a 15mm to 22mm range.  Zoom lenses are a great way to cover this range, and spending a little extra for "L" glass will make the difference.  I carry a EF 17-40mm for the autofocus bodies.
