So I have a crop body and $1000 - go spend it. The 18-55 is better than it ought to be (about $150). The next
purchase is the 55-250 (about another $150 although the "list" is closer to $300) That makes a super all-around
combo that covers most focal lengths and situations on a budget. It's also a good kit for travel because both of the lenses are mostly plastic and very light. The rest depends on personal preferences. First I'd grab a 50 f1.8
(about $125) because it's a super lens for the money. The next choice is $400-450 and strictly style related -
either the 28mm f2.8 or the 35mm f2.0 if I prefer wide angle and landscapes or the 85 f1.8 or 100 f2.8 if I need something a little longer. Whichever I choose, my preference in the other category is my next purchase. These
four lenses take up $850 to $900 of my spending spree leaving me a good budget for lens hoods, filters, a small
bag (lenses don't do you any good at home) with some careful planning. UV filters for the lenses, ND set, and hoods should take about $75, leaving me enough for a bag, tripod, and incentive to save for a flash.
