What lens should I get for the Canon T5i?
If you haven’t bought your Canon T5i(700D) yet you need to decide if you want the 18-55 STM or the 18-135 STM lenses. Often the 55-250 is sold in a bundle with the 18-55 STM too. This video should help you decide if the 18-55 or the 18-135 is best for you.
The 18 – 135 STM lens is excellent and when purchased with the Canon T5i, a good value, that makes the T5i with 18 – 135 kit the an excellent value If you are the type that desires one lens to do most of your shooting. If your budget is tight go ahead and get the 18-55 kit, the kit lens is fine to start with and as you shoot you will learn what is important to you and you can begin to look for lenses that will fill that gap. Update: New video- Recommended lenses for Canon DSLRS.
And spend some time learning about lenses and what all those acronyms mean.
