comment Could I get a lens hood that suits 'all' lenses?
thanks for the answer. I believe I will probably get 2, they seem pretty reasonably priced on here wexphotographic.com/lens-hoods-and-caps-canon/b3076-m37

ok well you've succeeded in convincing me not to go cheap... I think I'll try to find one thats used and going for about $100. Would you think something like this might be a good choice? bhphotovideo.com/c/product/614698-REG/…

TBH I have not had a whole great deal of use with ISO. I tend to use manual setting for aperture etc, but leave ISO on Auto (is that bad?). I will be mostly working in England outdoors with this so lighting depends... I believe, after looking more into it, that the 70-300 f 4-5.6 IS USM is probably the lens for me. I hope

I'm also open to 3rd party lenses if that's something people consider better in this case. I'm not sure if Sigma may have any decent offerings, or even if it would work with my camera.

Thanks for the response Francesco, is this the 70-200mm lens you were referring to (the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/…)? I'm not quite sure what an L lens is or its advantages. My main concern with what you've said is that I believe I would like more than 200mm, and that being said would you say that the 70-300mm is not a good lens that you would recommend?

Thanks Philipp. I am looking probably more for 300mm range because I want maximum zoom, and I believe at my level I won't need more. Would you agree that IS is necessary for wildlife shooting or not?
