I have finally made the move to upgrade my glass and have sold the 18-200 kit lens that came with my 50D ( brought last xmas ) and I am now ready to purchase the 17-55 2.8 and the 70-200 F4 IS :D in the next few weeks :D.

I thought it was a good idea to sell the kit lens rather than leave it sitting on a shelf gathering dust and use the funds to help fund the upgrade , but now as I sit here packaging the lens up to send to its new owner I feel a bit weird letting the lens go :confused: and have realised that I have actually grown attached to the bloody thing.

Am I bit weird or has this hobby now really got a hold of me :confused:

well my neighbor (who is the one that made me decide Canon over Nikon).... bought the T1i when it first came out.. he never even snapped one pic with his kit lens.. funny thing is it is in his bag and he carries it everywhere.. i tell him sell it for $75..... he has the tamron 17-50/f2.8 non vc and canon 70-200/f4 and loves them... but he even says he is missing that 50-70 area and wants to find something.... I told him to sell the kit lens and put it towards that area he wants.... i told him this 3 weeks ago.. and yes he still has it... HAH

Meh, super zooms are useful for trips and stuff, but if you sold it already, better ship that sucker!

:D

18-200 would be useful at times, but you'll probably never want to use it again anyway.

I have a 70-200 2.8 on the way, but I'm not about to sell the 75-300. It's a perfect $100 beach lens.

I feel the same about my 18-55; it has a nasty scratch on the front element (doesn't affect anything) so is great for getting knocked around. Even if I got the 17-55 (which I sort of lust for but just don't need), I'd probably keep it.

2 years with my 17-55 kit and it has only been on the body in the last 18 months when I bought a cheap fisheye to screw on. That looked too weird, not on again. $75 or so is better to go to a new lens than collecting dust.
