I have the tamron 28-75 f2.8. It is a great lens. Depends on your price range though.

I would suggest getting a Canon lens as opposed to non-canon ones. Although a lot more expensive, it is a very good investment and it is all worth it. There are different kinds of Canon lenses from EF-S (cheapest) to EF (median quality) to EF-L (high end luxury lenses). For multi purpose lens, try the zoom range 18-200 EF-S or the EF 28-135 or for luxury class EF-L 17-40. Look them up and compare them considering your budget and your long term plans.

I also bought just the body as I had an analogic Canon EOS and two lens which matches perfectly with the new camera. I recommend you the 35-80 mm. lens for the beginning.

I started out with the canon t3i as well and i got the 18-55mm eith it and it was a great beginner lense and gave me alot of focal lenths to start from it was perfect for taking my camera any where after that my next lens soon after was the 50mm 1:4 which also was a great lense to start out with because i liked the shot i got with that bit the 18-55mm is your best multi purpose beginner lens for just starting out and getting a feel for what you most like

If you have the extra money the sigma 17-50 is a great multi purpose lens the rokinon lenses are great too if you don't mind manual focus hopes that helps...
