    Any thoughts?

    Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 II USM Standard Zoom Lens
    .42x Wide Angle Panoramic Macro Fisheye Lens for Canon EOS / EF (by Digital Optics)
    Cosina Wide-Angle Telephoto 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 AF Lens
    Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8-4 DG AF Lens
    Canon EF 28-90mm F/4-5.6 III SLR Lens

    Or maybe just sticking with the kit lens till christmas. Thoughts?

    If your gonna "upgrade" you should definetly wait until you have enough to get a good quality lens. Unless you need one of those lenses with that range NOW i would def save up and buy some nice glass, you wont regret it.

    rememeber, the poor man pays twice

    Out of all those mentioned, the only one that's not crap is the Canon 28-105 f/3.5-4.5. It's actually a decent lens, but won't add much value...you'll end up keeping the 18-55 kit attached.

    Wait til Christmas, or whenever you can drop a good $500 on a lens. The Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 is a decent step up from the kit. Or, if you want telephoto, look into the Canon 70-200 f/4L. But, definitely don't waste your money on the mentioned lenses...as they won't help you much.
