Re: Thank you for all the advice!

On a limited budget I would buy the kit with the 18-55 IS lens.

If you think you will use a tele lens a lot, buy the large kit that also includes the 55-250 IS lens.
These lenses are not fast but they will get you a long way, especially outdoors.

The 55-250 IS especially will last you a long time. The 18-55 IS you will probably want to upgrade eventually.

For indoor shots and low light shots in general, add one of the wider primes that has been suggested: Canon 28mm f/1.8 Sigma 30mm f/1.4 etc.

These focal lenghts are a lot more useful than 50mm. Don't buy the Canon 50mm f/1.8 just because it is cheap, it is too long indoors.
