I'm looking to upgrade from my Canon 450d to the T2i. There are two bundles: one that comes with body and two Canon lenses, 18-55mm and 55-250mm, for $799 and, on Amazon, there's the Canon with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens + Canon EF 75-300mm for $750!
So my question is which one is better to get? Or should I just buy the body alone and skip the 18-55mm, and get either the 55-250 or the 75-300?
I really enjoy taking macro pictures - I'm going to eventually get a lens just for that, but in the mean time I want to be able to take macro with the lens and be able to zoom in on pictures. I had a Tamron 70-300mm but the quality of the pictures wasn't so great.
Anyway is there a big difference between the lenses? Somebody told me to get 18-200 with the body or do the bundles. Will an 18mm take better macro? Or will the 55mm do the same thing?
Also here is some of the pictures I take: http://www.viewbug.com/member/pinkninja81. I would like to hear your opinions, advice and tips so I can do better.
