    if flash is allowed, 18-270mm will do.

    if flash is not allowed, 11-16mm f2.8, 24-70mm f2.8, 70-200mm f2.8 will do.

    general purpose on a budget? a lens that covers 28-105mm range there.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    17-50 f2.8 is IMO the most useful in this kind of situations

    If you bothered to understand the most basic aspects of focal range and field of view, you would know the answers. Therefore, best to go read up on the basics.

    an Ultra wide angle may be useful for small group gatherings in cramp places. good for group shots too when you need to get "everything in".
    Photography is about seeing without a camera.
