    2. then would your guys get a 75-300mm III USM lens instead of EF 55-250mm IS lens? thanks.

    i apologise if the above questions sound noob. sorry.
    I heard the 75-300mm is a pretty lousy lens.

    1) 2nd hand 55-250 will cost ~$250-$300
    2) I would suggest 55-250 over 75-300. Also, in general, when using a tele lens of such focal length 200mm>, IS will come in handy if handheld. (but to some "IS" is redundant)

    21mm - 35mm Wide Angle Landscape, Architecture, exaggerated portraits, environmental portraits, documentary
    35mm-70mm Normal Street and Documentary, portraits, documentary
    80mm-135mm Medium Telephoto Portraiture, detailed landscapes/architecture
    135mm-300mm Telephoto Sports and Wildlife, detailed landscapes/architecture, portraits
    Greater than 300mm Super Telephoto Wildlife
    cus i was wondering if i purchase an EF 55-250mm IS lens, and later on purchase a 75-300mm III USM, then it's like a waste of money if they somehow have the same effect.

    It's a waste of money to buy the latter lens. The former one received good review comments. Do read the reviews, the 75-300 is a lens one can easily skip in terms of image quality. The 55-250 comes with IS and the 50mm at the long end are not really a loss given the amount of megapixel the 55D and 600D have. Enough space to crop.

    Then go with the 550D + 18-200...more than enough for anything general...from wide - normal - tele, which can take from landscape > portrait > closeup etc.

    The 18-200mm is an all rounded lens. No need bother about getting other lens for a while at least

    Canon used to package 18-200 with some of the body, not sure why I don't see it now...hmmm...btw, all Canon entry level level Kit 1 is the 18-55.

    You may want to consider the option of buying Body and Lens (18-200) separately.. The other alternative is Buy the body with kit 1, and get a 2nd hand 55-250..I believe this option is cheaper. I did not do the maths yet, so not sure how the cost will be like.

    But the 2 lens setup will be quite abit more troublesome when you need the longer focal length.

    Hmm.... Saw that only the 60D has got kit iii which features the 18-200 lens. Maybe sales for this kit is poor thus they don't have it anymore? Try calling Canon up to see if they offer it for 550D?

    hmm.. i also find it by buying a kit I and purchase with purchase a 55-250 lens a good idea. but then to do so, i have to purchase during IT show or at cathay photo. lolx.
    by the way friend, can enlighten me on your this sentence... "But the 2 lens setup will be quite abit more troublesome when you need the longer focal length."? thanks.
