Picked up an older Sigma 28-70 f/2.8 rececntly off another forum member.
And I find this to be a great focal length.
If after something similar though ... the Tamron 28-75mm is excellent vale for money as well.

I still want something a bit wider .. but if i go for something in the 17-50 or 17-70 range ... I am going to have a bit of overlap. I think I will try for the wider range though like a 12-24mm (when i can afford it as these are pretty expensive) to complete the wide end.

But as an all-round range to shoot ... the mid-20mm to 75mm range is quite good. It is what I have been using pretty much all of the time lately (unless i want really long).
