    Should I stick with the 350d and kit lens OR should I go with the body only?

    If I go with the body only which lens do you guys think I should get? Links?

    Also....trying to keep EVERYTHING under 1200 :)

    I like the kit lens...


    Besides if you dont know shit about SLR's then a good lens wont help you make better pictures.


    Better lens only matters when you mastered everything else.

    I've dealt with SLR's in the past. This however will be my first DSLR

    I was asking about the kit lens because some say it blows......some say it's ok.

    Also....just wondering if I should get a different zoom (75-300) or something similar?

    Buy the kit. The kit lens is good for what it is and at worst, it makes a decent wide angle lens and a backup lens.

    I would recommend a kit lens over that if that's your only lens you're going to start out with on a 350D. Get the kit lens and the 50mm together if you can, if you can.
