Depends on what you want to photo. I haven't bought any real expensive glass yet either. We use a 70-300 for long distance and landscape stuff and the lens that came with the t2 for other closer work. I do want an ultra wide angle for the next trip out west.
If you're made of money. If you think saws are expensive then the camera stuff is going to really scare you. There's a lot of good looking cameras on craigslist near you Justin. May be a way to get more bang for your buck.
