I agree with most of this. I have a 550D, and have learned the hard way. I upgraded quite early, and bought a Sigma 24-70 f2.8 to replace the kit lens (18-135). Later I found out that the kit-lens is actually quite good! I still have purchased upgrades, but this is to add function, like a macro lens, or longer focal lentghs. My philosophy here is to buy quality. Wait until you know what you actually need, and buy a quality lens in stead of something needing replacement after a day due to soft pictures etc.

Google is cheaper than the camera store! Upgrade when you know what you need, not when you think you need.
