Street photography and landscape lens recommendations for EOS R50

Hi all!
Can anyone suggest a travel lens for the R50?
Have just started using this camera and am using the kit lens. I took it to Japan with me and found that I was quite limited with what I could photograph. Would really love an all round lens that I can use in different settings (street/ countryside etc...) if there is one. 

Still learning but still want to purchase a different lens for travel .

Definitely, Rick is spot on.  This is the best all-in-one lens available right now the your model.

I don’t know if that is the best but certainly a decent choice. Lately I have been impressed with Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM | C lens. Not sure if it’s a current market lens or not but certainly worth a look even used.

Without doubt, my respected colleague Ernie's suggestion will give you a much greater zoom range and that could be an important benefit.  However, there are some considerations here as regards compromises in lens performance to get that range - like any device it's all about balancing priorities:  See this review Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM | C review | Digital Camera World
The lens is designed for DSLR cameras which, for Canon cameras (you must specify that), use an EF or EF-S lens mount, and to use it one would need to get an EF-RF adapter to work on your camera's RF lens mount, which will add cost, bulk and weight.  Also, be aware that Canon do not provide any promises of functionality or support for any lenses made by a third party - this does not just apply to the Sigma in question but any lens not released by Canon.
Ernie's suggestion is certainly valid if you prefer the focal range as a significant priority - this is simply to give you a context over the considerations in using a non-RF and especially non-Canon lens.


cheers, TREVOR
