You'll need another body, at least a 10D and a 100 2.0 (better than the 85 1.8 IMHO) and you'll be set. If you can upgrade to the 50 1.8 MKI you'll have very accurate AF. YN-468 flash is very good and very inexpensive. It's full featured. Also, look into a 550EX for a little more power and money The 18-55 IS is a good lens for group shots with good lighting. Keep it. You'll use it. You can trash that 75-300, or at least leave it home for weddings

i currently have
a Nifty 50mm 1.8
Kit Lens, 18-55mm IS non USM
and a 75-300mm
keeping in the spirit of inexpensive lenses (NOT CHEEP)
what would you recommend?

The 75-300mm is by far the worst in the grouping, and the least useful to boot. In the spirit of being "inexpensive", it should be replaced with a 55-250mm IS. It won't break the bank, and it comes close to rounding out a cheap kit.

Tamron 17-50 2.8 seems to be one of the more popular choices.
