I am new to photography, having just invested in a Rebel XSi recently.
I currently have only the kit lens and the 50mm f/1.8 prime lens. I am trying to decide on the next lens to buy, especially for my upcoming trip to Costa Rica where I intend to capture mostly wildlife but also anticipate great wide angle shots of beaches/sunsets.
My question is: should I get an 18-250mm so I can leave the kit lens at home and have the ability to shoot mostly with that lens OR is it better to get the 55-250mm lens and carry the kit lens with me for normal shooting?
I appreciate any feedback/advice!
