    I'll be going to South America next week, would OTAP suggest I purchase a polarizing filter?

    If so, make some suggestions :]

    Rebel XSi (450D)
    18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
    50mm f/1.8
    75-300mm f/4-5.6

    Buy a NICE one, don't skimp because of the price.

    Plus is the filter size the same on all of your lenses?

    yes, buy one that you can use on as many lenses as you can to cut costs if possible.

    bring the 50mm, throw the 18-55 in the garbage, and rent a good long lens. the 75-300 is shit, and the 18-55 is hammered shit.

    ^^ The 18-55 IS is actually pretty decent, I think that's probably what he has since he has the XSi.
