Okay, so I'm ordering my 60D very soon, and I already have a 55-250mm. I got a deal on it so I snagged it before I bought my camera. I've been playing around with it on a friend's Rebel XSi, and my friend has told me that I can use his XSi kit lens (18-55mm IS) whenever I need it. Although eventually I'm going to need my own general purpose / walk around lens so I won't need to steal his 18-55mm all the time. What should I get? I'm willing to spend up to $600 (although the cheaper the better), because as I said, I can use his 18-55mm to start off, so I have some time to save up money.
I'm considering the EF-S 15-85mm, but browsing the forums a lot since I joined, I see that primes, specifically the 50mm 1.4, are pretty popular around here. Which if these two do you think would compliment the 55-250mm better? These are the only two lenses I'll have for a while.
I don't really have a direction for my photography yet. I got the 55-250 to be able to shoot friends playing paintball and soccer. The next lens I buy will just be for shooting things closer to me that I don't need such a large range to capture. Do you guys/girls think that I should go with a prime, or another (albeit shorter), zoom lens to complete my small lens collection for the time being?
