Why 50mm? I find it a bit restrictive in a 1.6 sensor. Also, why 50-250mm when you will get the 70-200mm red ring in the future anyway? Genuine questions.
Low F stop of 1.8 creates nice bokeh. Great light gathering. Cheap.

I meant the 70-300 IS

$$$ compared to the "red ring" is the difference in getting a nice camera, and a few lenses-filters and learning how to use it, and getting a nice camera with the kit lens and never understanding what filters and much else does.
