Wildlife and nature...

These two are easy with one lens . If you do mean serious wildlife like bears and moose - except in a zoo - this is a more challenging question ; ).

And it is impossible to get a good lens for sports with that budget - 70-300f4-5,6 IS works - but only in bright light and outdoors - and with a long zoom nature and landscapes .... does not work.

My advice is to buy a basic good and usable zoom like 15-85 as a first lens - very good for everything else , but not for sports (unless it is sportfishing and you can be in the same boat)

Learn to use your camera first ( it will take some months) and save money for a good better telezoom. There will be enough manual reading and practicing with just one lens.( or buy a good book like " 7D for dummies " - it is very OK!)

Buying two useless lenses with a good camera does not make DSLR shooting very enjoyable.
