For less than 1/3 of the price you might look at a 15-85 zoom, although not nearly as long, on a crop sensor body it has a more interesting range of variation, from the interestingly wider than standard 15 (24 equiv, a traditional landscape focal length) to some decent telephoto at 85. By comparison the 28-300 is normal to tele to longer tele and does not have the wide - I'll argue that having the 15-27 is much more valuable than the 86-300 in terms of compositional creativity.

And there is nothing wrong with having $1700 left in your pocket ...
