    Hey all, I have a canon EOS 1300D. So far I have just been using the 18-55mm kit lens. I am now in the market for a new lens. I am looking at doing quite a lot of wildlife photography and was wondering if you guys could point me in the direction of a cheapish, good beginners lens? TIA :)

    You can probably find a Canon EF 70-300 with IS and USM for a modest price there is a newer version the II which replaced it, so I imagine the old ones are going for prices. It won't be perfect as a nice long prime like a 600mm or 800mm prime would cost a small fortune, but on a budget that 70-300 will get you some closeups if your patient.

    It may be worth comparing and seeing if sigma or tamron have something comparable for a good price. I can't imagine them beating the price on the first generation of the lens however.

    Before I would buy anything, I would look at what sort of wildlife you want to shoot. Wildlife comes in lots of sizes, and some of it allows you to get close. Then I would look at what lens would suit the subject. Price wise I would look at something used once you have decided what you want to get.
