    Default canon 450d user: upgrading from kit lens.

    hi all... i've a 18-55mm kit lens currently.
    i'm considering upgrading to a macro lens (interested in macro photog) or a longer zoom (for a better general purpose lens), as well as getting EF 50mm f1.8 II for practice.

    the canon models i've rounded down to.

    EF 50mm f2.5 Compact Macro
    EF-S 60mm f2.8 Macro USM

    EF-S 18-200mm
    EF-S 55-250mm

    which would you recommend i buy first (macro/ standard zoom) for practice and use, given that my budget is around seven hundred? the next time i buy the other lens would probably be a year later.

    is EF-S essential for the IS? (over EF)
    would you recommend a macro zoom lens, like by sigma or tamron, instead?

    sorry for the many questions.

    I would go for Macro if I am in your shoes as it gives a totally new perspective and techniques as opposed to super zoom.
