But really, it depends on the kind of shots you want to take. If you want shots like southpaw's kind of shots, get a wide angle lens. There are a few options for that. Canon 10-22, Tokina 11-16, etc. But these two lenses are different. Make sure you understand what f/4 and f/1.8 means, and which is better for certain situations.

The 18-55 IS is quite decent, and is pretty wide for most uses. The 55-250 is something I wanted to get, as it has more range then my 28-135.

But if you want a cheap but good lens, look for the Canon 50mm f/1.8. New it's about $90, and you can find it used on ebay for around $70 or so. One of the best low light lenses. No zoom.
