Hello all! So I've been wondering what kind of lenses I should start off with on a Canon. If it matters, my DSLR is a crop sensor (APS-C). I've borrowed my friend's 50mm 1.8 before and I liked it a lot but, I have a bit more money now and I want something better than the 1.8. Also, to be more specific, the price range would be around $300 to $500. If you have a number of lenses to list, please list the lens that you'd recommend over the others as the first lens. Thank you!
Edit: Forgive me for not specifying on what I will be mostly taking pictures of. I don't travel as much so I usually just take pictures of whatever goes on in my day. I guess it's just people and objects that I find to be interesting.

Welcome to the forum.
In your price range a good all-around lens would be this:

Better for what, or better than? The 50mm f1.8 is an outstanding lens and will be very difficult to find 'better'. Its only short coming I can see is, it is not a zoom.
