One thing I would suggest: to start with, get the 55-200 rather than the 50 mm f/1.4.

Is the 55-200 even available? It's not on Canon's latest inventory list, and some other sites say it's discontinued although DPR has it on their current list. Even if it's available it's not a great performer optically and has a poor build.........

Doesn't sound like the OP is interested in a telephoto at this time, although I'd rather suggest the 70-300........

.......but with his upcoming travel schedule I'd be leaning more to an ultra wide like the 10-22....
