Re: Tamron 17-50 vs Kit Lens + Nifty Fifty???

That is what I started with - camera and the 18-55, 55-250 and 50 1.8 although my camera was the T1i. Used those lenses for about a year, then decided I wanted something longer on the basic lens so went with the Canon 15-85 which gives the little longer reach that I often wanted/needed without changing lenses, plus a little wider. In January I decided to get the Tamron 70-300 VC to replace the 55-250 which I almost immediately was able to sell locally for $150.

So my recommendation would be get the two kit lenses and maybe the nifty fifty, use them for a while and upgrade to something else if you think you need/want it like I did. Very good lenses for their low prices. Learn your camera.
