Still does anyone have any recommendations for a good lens?

Also what does anyone know about this: http://bestpriceelectronics.com/bp/p...pc-kit-p-19518
whats your budget?? the 24-75mm or 24-105mm are great all around lenses, but they are pricey. you can look into the EFS 10-22mm its good for landscape and general use. i use this website alot to check out lenses ----> fredmiranda.com

they also got an awesome macro section which i mostly shoot.

Just want to through this out there....I don't know anything about cameras or especially lenses yet.

Low-end budget. Already spending $800-900 on the camera. Is there something that like 1 or 2 steps up from the kit lens?

Ok. I'm probably going to start with just the kit lens until I get things figured out and then I'll probably pick up that lens. Thanks for the help so far.

Learn how to use your camera, then get lenses. You can take very good photos with kit lenses.
