    Hi,

    I don't know Canon, but I imagine you would like to start off with the classic prime lens (fixed) 50mm and a wide angle lens (10 - 20 Sigma or Canon equivalent).

    The first lens will suit shooting ur dogs as it is quick, light and unobtrusive. The second will allow you shoot the spirals/towers or length of the church/pigeon loft as it conveys the grandure of larger scenes whilst still being up close and personal.

    There were my first lenses and I continue to love them.

    Post ur piccies when you take them I would love to see your interpretation of your hobbies (are you from the UK)?

    The kit lens that coems with the body will be useful enough for outdoor shots and and 50/1.8 for indoors. It certianly is a good budget combo.
