    Yes. 18-55mm is a very good walkabout range for a crop body like 550D.

    Go to the shops and have a look. Ask the shop to change lens and judge the weight for yourself. What is heavy to you might be light weight for others... If weight is your main concern then prosumer cameras are an option for you to consider.

    Everything has its opportunity cost. Kit 2 has more reach at the expense of weight. Ask yourself what you want before you decide.

    Hi,

    Think kit2 provides u with more options becuse of the longer focal length.
    And weight diffference wont vary by much.. go get it and dun forget to set aside some extra cash for filters and a reliable/sturdy tripod/ballhead

    Think best is to have go down to shops and try them out for yourself. Gears are very much subjected to personal preferences. 18-200 will definitely give you more reach and the weight difference is only approximately 395g. You make the call.

    kit II has better reach. IMO i feel that the difference in weight is not tt impt as long as u feel comfortable with it. looking back now, i feel that mayb i should have gotten my d90 with the 18-200. lol

    If you have the budget, get the Kit II by all means. Will serve you better in the long run, esp if you shoot many types of things.

    If you're going for landscape mainly, then kit I will do the job and save you some $$.

    I'm having the same dilemma as u b4...well...if ur like me too lazy to change lens...want a 1 lens solution while travelling...then go for kit II. It offers greater zoom range...as for weight...i think i'm getting use to it now...lol...jus bought my 550D kit II to Tibet recently...shooting scenery is great...I'm LOVING it!!! Jus a note to u is that 18-55 has a rotating front element which is a pain for filter users.

    i also a noob that just started a few weeks back only with kit II.Love my set.
    but to me i love the zoom it provides, the options available.
    think when traveling or walkabout, the option to zoom in close is important to me.
    cos at times i can zoom in to a area and no need to no pp to crop out the thing.
