Lens Set for 500D
Aug 19, 2009

Hi folks,

Just starting out in photography and have a 500D with the kit 18-55 lens. I rented an L series 70-200 to take on Safari a few weeks back which I quite enjoyed, but am after advice on what collection of lenses I should start building up.

I'm not hugely into wildlife or action sports photography, so don't need any insanely powerful fast lenses, but am keen on landscape and architecture photography as well as close-ups of flowers, insects etc.

I guess that means I could do with a decent wide-angle lens, a macro lens and maybe a super-zoom to cover the rest?

What sort of lens combinations would you recommend without having to burn masses of cash on it?
