I've been using my 80D for around 6 months now. So far I've just been using the 18-55 that I got the camera with. I love to shoot land and seascapes.
I'd like to get into macro photography in the future, but for my first 'nice' lens I want something that's not so specialized. I could even do 2 lenses, but at the moment I'd like something I can really work out, instead of getting a few and getting overwhelmed.
I've got a budget of around $1400, so I'd love some recommendations.

Do you want to stick with wide to standard focal lengths? Or are you wanting to also have telephoto options?
If you want to stay within 18-55mm, is there any particular focal length that you tend to use the majority of the time?
How important will wide apertures be?

"If you want wide angle on an APS-C sensor, you have to go "low end"."
Really? Perhaps, Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM Lens. Not exactly "low end"! Off brand perhaps, Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art Lens. Not exactly "low end" either.
