    Unless you know what you want, else the kit is usually sufficient for alot of use. I think it comes with either 18-55 or 18-135, either options are fine..

    btw, in case you are thinking, you can't use the body alone without any lens...

    the kit lense is definitely useful enough n better than what most ppl think of as "kit lense".

    i would go for the 18-135

    Get either one of the kit lenses, I would recommend the 18-135 for its reach. There is a reason why camera makers offer a bundle with a kit lens for beginners. Get other lenses once you know why you need them.

    The only reason why u would buy a body alone without kit lens is when u already have lenses to use.

    Even so, you can still buy the kit bundle, and sell away the kit lens (thou the sale potential may not be that great) for a higher price than the difference between kit n body-only price.

    Haha. I thought you needed advice exclusively from our Club Snap senior member, Kit.

    I don't see a problem with the kit lenses. Do you?

    I would also advise you to get the 600D with the kit lens, but instead of the 18-135mm, I would go for the 18-55mm + 55-250mm lens.

    I believe that the 18-55mm lens' IQ is good enough for lots of use and with the 55-250mm (sometime you get purchase with purchase price), the entire bundle might cost the same or slightly cheaper or more expensive when compared to the 18-135mm kit/ With that combination, you get both the width needed (18mm) and the length needed (250mm).

    I started off with that combination for quite sometime before upgrading the lens to a 70-200mm f4L.
