I recently purchased a Canon 1200D kit in the UK (from Dixon Travel). I also have an older Canon Rebel XSi kit with similar lenses (purchased in the USA, around 6-7 years ago). I am trying to determine the benefits of the lenses in the two kits and decide which lenses to keep.
The 1200D kit has an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III and a EF75-300 f/4-5.6 III USM zoom. I am assuming that neither has image stabilization.
The older XSi kit has an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II IS and a EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS zoom. Both have image stabilization. The zoom lens has a Hoya UV filter.
Do the 1200D III lenses offer any extra features or improvements over the older XSi IS lenses? If so, are those benefits worth giving up the image-stabilization feature? All recommendations are appreciated.
