Hi All

Just thought Id introduce myself and my camera to all.
Im in New Zealand and I own a 550D, got it with the twin lens kit, so 18-55mm 0.25 0.8f and the 55-250 1:4-5.6 IS.

Im pritty new to photography, got my camera last october but I have barely used it and still using it.

Where you guys from? Do you have sample photos that you have taken with this sort of equpment?

Im thinking of getting another wide angle lens or a zoom lens which is al-round lens for close ups and long shots...

any recommendations?

I have a recommendation. Go to Facebook, search for Theresa Dowst, friend her, and then meet her (she's on vacation in NZ). Then, tell her I said Hi.

That should be easy enough.

Seriously: Welcome, have a great time, and the setup you have is easily good for a year or two.

After that, keep the body, and maybe invest in more expensive lenses. But for now, stick with what you have. That's a fantastic setup.


Thank you. bw!
