    If you had those items then you wouldn't be starting from scratch.
    Anyhow, look at your needs, not our wants.

    It depends a lot on what kind of photography you are interested in. That would guide you on what other lenses you might consider. You should also consider a good tripod and head.

    Tripod would be a good investment.

    Using a crop sensor, you don't have much in the ways of a wide angle. Not necessary for mainly people shots, but still something to look into.
    Same goes for telephoto.

    If you like macro, then look into the 100mm canon macro lens

    If you're interested in macro, I can recommend the Canon 100mm F2.8 Macro. If you have the extra money a MR-14 EX Ring Flash[FONT=&quot] is quite useful.[/FONT] [FONT=&quot][/FONT]

    If you like macro, the 100mm f/2.8 would be a really good choice. I have one and love it. It can also be used as a portrait lens since you said you like shooting people also. You need a good tripod and maybe some off camera flash units. Just my thoughts.
