Please Sanity Check My Shopping List For Me!
Aug 13, 2004

Hi Folks - after much tooing and froing im ready to ORDER! I dithered between the Canon 28-135is, Sigma 70-200 2.8, and Canon 70-200 f4 L for ages. In the end I decided to ditch them all and save my money by going for the Sigma 70-300mm APO Super Macro II! I'm only a beginner (complete newbie) and figured since I won't be printing huge blow ups of my pictures this lens will do (for now).

Here is the shopping list I have come up with. Can you tell me if it makes sense and if anything obvious is missing? This cameras first job will be to go on vacation to Malaysia and Singapore with me in September

Basics:
Sandisk 1GB Ultra II Compact Flash Card
Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL EF-S 18-55MM KIT
Canon BP-511 - 1200 MAH Lithium Battery For CANON
Canon EF 50MM F1.8 II STANDARD AUTO FOCUS LENS
Sigma 70-300/4.0-5.6 APO Super II Canon AF

Filters:

Hoya 58mm Super Multicoated UV (0) - should i order two of these to keep one on each lense or should i share it between lenses?
Hoya 58mm HMC Multicoated Circular Polarizer
Hoya 52mm Super Multicoated UV (0)

To Carry It In:
Lowepro Rover AW II Backpack Gray
