+1 on great choice, for my T1i got both kits lens back in Nov-2009 as package when bought the T1i, 18-55 IS and 55-250 IS, both are great starter lens. You can stick with them or decide if you want to spend $$$ and grow with the hobby in specific area.

fwiw, I've just recently "moved up" to the Canon 15-85 IS but will keep the kit 18-55 IS as back-up. Taken many-many shots with the 55-250 IS. That's my long zoom lens until I save $$$'s for the 100-400L (a 2011 want).

It's also a good idea to keep the 18-55mm IS together to mate with the t1i or t2i it was purchased with. When you decide to resell it, the value seems to increase beyond the cost of a used 18-55 alone (over a bare t1i-t2i body)

He got a good price for the glass. What's the point of this comment?

Im just saying it is a good deal but an even better one was when they were 150.

My favorite lens because of it's size, weight, sharpness, and zoom. I've owned a Sigma 150-500mm and a Canon 100-400mm, and I prefer neither to the 55-250mm.

Too big, too heavy, no thanks.
