So, wich would you recomend?
The Canon lense, or two Sigma class="contBold"28-70/70-300mm lenses?

Here´s the package I had in mind:

Here´s the info on the lenses:

So I basically take everyday photos. Nothing professional, just a little hobby. But I do like taking Macro shots... would the Sigma be any better for that purbose?
(Like my current camera, the FujiFilm S7000 has a exellent Super-Macro mode... it can focuse on objets 1" away).

So, what do you say?
Thanks

Maybe stick with the kit lens until you get used to the camera.

You probably have at least a month to research while you try out your new camera!

i totally agree.. stay away from those bundled sigma kits.. those are about as cheap of lenses as sigma makes..

the kit lens is a better lens and will give you the research time you need to make a wise investment on your next lens..
