I've pretty much made my mind up on a camera (600D) but not on lenses yet... Expert Infotech has the 600D plus 18-55/3.5-5.6 IS and 55-250/4.0-5.6 IS kit lenses for $1129 and the body for $819 which seem to be the best deals in NZ right now. So the difference is $500 which is exactly what you'd pay for those 2 lenses separately anyway so no real saving. Wondering what else you might recommend as a good lens for travelling, getting a good variety of shots including some pretty grand landscape but also some close up work too and something which won't break the bank.
Loads of people seem to recommend something like the Canon EF-S 18-135/3.5-5.6 IS might fit the bill? perhaps the Canon EF 28-135/3.5-5.6 IS USM? Or should I just get those 2 lenses and swap em when I need to?
Will also get a good bag that fits at least 2 lenses plus body and gear, some spare generic batteries, a few 32GB SDHC cards and a cleaning kit. Still deciding on whether to take a tripod...
Would like to get the opinions of some geekzoners!
