I just bought a T2i with the 18-135 lens.

My old camera was a 300d that came with the 18-55 (not IS) lens. Is there any reason to keep this lens, or will I never miss it if I sell it with my 300D?

Thanks everyone.

Sell it with the camera. the 18-135mm is covers the same range and will have better image iq plus is. It also will be much easier to sell your old camera with a lens for somebody just starting out.


6D, 5D, 7Dii, Eos R and too many lenses, flashes and aux. gear to list!:cool:

Sell it with your old camera, its not a good lens, you wont miss it, and you improve your chances of selling your old camera to a newbie if its complete and ready to go.

Sell it. Not worth a whole lot, but it will add value to your old stuff to sell together.

I agree with all the others, just sell it as you have that range covered with the new lens.

Thanks everyone. I figured that would be the best thing. I just wanted to check with people who knew a lot more than I did.

One PharmD to another, welcome. Retail or Inpatient?
