Stunning mate, how did you get the bird to hold the bug for a macro shot. Could do with that accessory

Just spent a few days in Sydney for work.
Used up all my spare time in Centennial Park.
Great to be pointing the camera at totally new (for me) brids and such a help to have good light

This shot was taken from the stands using the 75-300mm lens. This is a non IS lens, which does complicate things a bit. The image has been Photoshopped to give a different look to the finished shot.

This was at 300mm with the camera mounted on a tripod in the garden and shot using the remote feature linked to my laptop.

I bought the Canon 75-300mm lens for my 550D. Its an excellent piece of kit and the Image Stabiliser works wonders. I've used it a lot for shots of the boy playing rugby and the pics are excellent and crisp.
I wouldn't get a telephoto without the IS.
Only issue is cost, I think mine retails about 400 though I got a bit off as part of a deal. I bought a UV filter for 15 (Canon) and stuck it on to protect it.
One thing I had to remember is that with an 18MP camera you can afford to zoom and crop in later on the PC. I was trying to get too far in and missing moving targets.

No matter what lens you get, prepare yourself for the inevitable hankering after another and then another

I think I have said this before David but that is one heck of a nice bit of glass you have there

I have the 18-55 lens which is standard with these models and it is not a bad lens as such. Most of the shots I have put up were taken with this lens apart from the most recent which were taken with the Vivitar 90mm f2.8 macro, which is work in progress

On the telephoto front if you want to stick with Canon then the 75-300 usm is good value, although a tad more expensive the model with image stabilisation is worth the extra money. I have the feeling that at the 75mm mark this lens is sharper than the kit lens at 55

Hi people I'm going to purchase a CANON EOS 600D with an 18-55mm IS Lens at the weekend and I'm just wondering if anyone can recommend me with another lens. I'm mainly going to use my camera for Trophy shots for fishing, some close-ups of wildlife and finally to be able to zoom in in things like birds in trees from a distance and still get a good clear image. So what would you guys suggest as my other lens.
P.S I don't really want to spend to much on my other lens, thanks for your replies.
