Re: which T4i kit

I just recently purchased the T4i with the 18-135mm lens.  Amazon at the time was offering the 55-250mm lens for $150 off the original price of $247, if purchased at the time of the camera purchase. That brought that lens down to $97 for me. The 18-135mm is an STM (Stepper Motor) lens, where the 55-250mm is not. (I believe that Canon is trying to get rid of these lenses and replace them with an STM equivalent.)  I also purchased the Canon Pancake STM lens.  I find that for the majority of the time, I just use the 18-135mm zoom lens with the camera.  As someone mentioned, if you go with the smaller lens kit, you'll eventually want to buy a zoom lens.  I find that the three lenses I now own are sufficient for my simple needs.
