Okay, so! I've FINALLY decided on: - 400D (18-55mm kit): I was going to get the Body only, but my local store are doing an offer on the Kit at the same price as the body, so I'm going to sell the lens on eBay. :0) - Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM Lens: I "um'd" and "ar'd" about this over the 18-55mm IS lens, but I decided, although its more, I do want the Range. I've been using the 18-55mm kit lens that came with my 350D (now giving both Body and lens to daughter as birthday present, hence new camera etc) and its just not long enough, I want a bit more. I am also planning on getting the "Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens" and a good Macro later on in the year. Perhaps in the fall. Now, I what I need help with, I can't decide on: - Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS or the - Canon EF 75-300 III F4-5.6 USM Lens I like the "55" range on the 55-250mm, but I'm not sure if the "250" is long enough? Hence the "75-300". Now if they done a "55-300" I'd be laughing! lol. I like to shoot Wildlife/Horses/Pets, so that's why I wanted the Range. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
