    Purchased a 350d for $500 with the kit lens. Brand new in a box.

    Give me a small somewhat complete list of what I need to go with it.

    I keep reading that the kit lens isn't worth a crap. What can I get that is decent and affordable??

    Agreed. Wish I had wider on my Ecuador trip though. I'm trying to plan a Europe trip, and I'll definitely pick up a wider lens.

    Sounds like a pretty good deal.

    Is this going to be the best all around buy??

    I am looking for something that will take decent wildlife pics. I also want something that will take good pics at my daughter's plays and programs.
