    Difference is the reach. Kit2 can zoom into your neighbour's window. Kit1 can only zoom into your own window. The other diff is the price.

    Do a search on the 2 lenses.. since the difference is only the 2 lenses (and of course the price), u will find ur ans after reading reviews on the 2 lenses..

    Cheers

    Edit: and read the stickies too.. they are there for a reason, to guide you along..

    maybe limit by your budget?
    Don't forget to set aside some spare $$ for other accessories:
    1) dry cabinet
    2) bag(s)
    3) ext flash
    4) filters
    5) tripod
    6) cleaning kit
    7) etc etc...
    Exploring! :)
