We are going on holiday to California in August and I'm looking for the best all-round lense to take with us. We'll be touring as a family, so I don't want to be carrying too much gear around with us. My daughter and I have a D80 & D3100 and I'm leaning towards just taking the D80.

So what would be the ideal (if there is one) single lense to take with us? We'll be touring cities, parks, mountains, lakes, desert and the coast, so quite a range of photo opportunities. We have an 18-55 kit lense and a Tamron f2.8 70-200, but neither of these are really suitable.

This is not a 'photographic' holiday, but I want it to be more than point-and-shoot. Let's assume also that there is no budget limit (although I might regret that comment!).

Any advice would be welcome. Thanks.
