kit 2. cause its got a good range.
with kit 1 + 55-250, if one lens got problem still got one more.
You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.
2lenses are better than one. once ur a higher lvl u will appreciate the need to change lenses. face it. getting a dslr is so tat u can change lenses. if u dun u are better off with a pns with good range.
Canon Price Guide
The focal length of kit2 lens is longer (135mm) compared to kit 1 (55mm). If unsure, get the kit1 lens first and see which kind of photography you are in. Use the $ not spend on kit2 to get other necessary items (dry cabinet / dry box, cleaning kit, tripod ...?).
Get other lenses once you know when and why you need them. No point getting lenses first and then "let's see for what to use".
What make me choose my 18-200mm instead of the dual kits lens:
* Better built quality(subjective)
* Shorter min focus distance in telephoto range compared to the 55-250mm
* Non-rotating front element (good for CPL & GND)
* "Rotation" Speed (it is faster to turn your zoom ring then to switch the body/lens)
* Less haste (don't need to carry extra lens or body during event shooting)
* Only need to purchase 1 set of hood & lens (UV, CPL, etc)

i bought KIT II..
Canon Kiss X4 | 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS II Kit lens | 50mm f1.8
Hi, If possible, just get body separately and 15-85mm later. They are a better combo.
There is no 550d + 18-200 combo
Need to buy separately
Thanks for all your advice. I have decided to go for 2 lenses, but I see that it is harder to maintain and changing lens out door is not recommended?

CP ? TK ? Don't get tha shortform. Thanks anw
Advise is don't buy the kit lens.. Canon kit lens never to shout about
If you are concerned about covering the focal length with a single lens, do save up a bit more for a 18-200mm, for greater convenience & image quality than the kit lens.
But of course that's me.. different ppl different thinking
