    Get a MACRO and a ZOOM.

    There is no combination which works wonders in both aspects.

    For a cheap option, look at the Tamron 90mm macro. As for Zoom, see how much u wanna spend and for wat purpose....

    Will be good to know your budget to see what combination you can afford. =)
    You can go with the 100mm Macro f2.8 from Canon which is really good if you can afford it.
    Unless you are going for L quality tele, i also recommend the 55-250mm IS to complement the kit lens that you are having =)

    A cheap alternative to macro lens will be a 50mm prime + raynox / extension tubes (which is currently my set up)
