comment What features should one look for when selecting a flash?
I realized that as soon as I finished writing this post, since the question didn't really seem to be about off camera flash. But even with those requirements kept aside, I believe that the the YN 460 is a heck of a deal for a beginner before getting a 'pro-level' and much more expensive speedlight.

comment Are the Canon 15-85mm + 50mm f/1.8 adequate substitutes for the 17-55mm f/2.8?
This one is reliable and comes with an India warranty so you are safe. Surely the Canon has a marginal edge, but it costs thrice as much. You can get a Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM with the remaining money if you have to spend it. :D

Agree with @cmason. f/2.8 makes a HUGE difference. Shoot indoors and you are already pushing your ISO to the max. This is where the two stops comes in handy. Plus it gives lovely bokeh.

Thanks Steve. This is very useful. Do you have any experiences with the stabilization systems on both?

comment Will I see a significant improvement from upgrading from Canon EOS 350D to 550D?
In terms of making the best out of your L series glass, you can see this link on DxOMark that compares how your 70-200 lens performs on the different bodies.

comment In Lightroom, how can I move a set of filtered images preserving the folder order?
That's easy. After exporting, goto "Import from Catalog", point it to your new catalog and select "Add New Photos To Catalog Without Moving". This will consolidate everything in a single catalog while moving some photos to an external drive.
