    Hi Everyone,

    I just bought the Canon 50D with the [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Canon-28-135mm-3-5-5-6-Standard-Cameras/dp/B00006I53S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1241979785&sr=8-1"]Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Standard Zoom Lens.[/ame] NOW WHAT???

    What else is essential for me to have as a beginner?

    I obviously need to buy a camera bag that can hold all the gear, i will choose that bag once i find out what else i need to fit in that bag.

    Should i get another lens such as the [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Canon-50mm-1-8-Camera-Lens/dp/B00007E7JU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1241979923&sr=8-1"]Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens.[/ame]
    or do you recommend another lens that is essential to have to be able to get a good range of different types of shots??

    Is there anything else I should invest in?

    Thanks everyone

    An excited newbie

    Shutter time.

    You bought a kit, go shoot it. Learn how to use it. Learn what you like to shoot. Then buy accessories to support the type of photography you are interested in.

    Agreed, take get out there and enjoy your new equipment. As you find things that you aren't able to do with what you have you can get out and get more.

    Add a tripod and a cable release. No matter what type of photography you choose to pursue, these will always be useful. Likewise a spare battery and memory cards.
