    I guess what you're missing is a medium zoom although you have the 70-300
    what i was thinking was a macro for close up stuff

    and if i were to replace the kit lens what would you recommend?

    wellll a proper macro is great but it requires a steady tripod which probably isnt going to be a disney thing.

    You could just get a lens which is good at focussing close up

    and if i were to replace the kit lens what would you recommend?
    Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM really is a wonderful kit lens replacement

    Well either a neutral density filter to take the strong light down a notch or a polarizer to make the sky even more blue ;) either could certainly be used... carefully, in florida

    yeah! I mean it's fun to experiment with things like that for sure! just get a decent one not a REALLLLLLY cheap one :) no point having a few hundred or more quid lens with a rubbish piece of cheap plastic or something in front of it ;)
