This is a good price, but I expect even lower prices for the T6i soon, as Canon has just announced a new model, the T7i, which is an upgrade over the T6i.

I agree completely on the 18-135mm. There are two recent models to consider:
- EF-S 18-135mm _STM_ -- Second version of the lens provides quiet AF, which is great for shooting home videos.
- EF-S 18-135mm _USM_ -- The latest versionof the lens provides quiet AF, but it's much faster than the STM. As it's newer, it probably isn't available as cheaply yet (either as a Canon refurb or second-hand from eBay).

There's no need to look at anythings else (other than maybe a fast prime like the f/1.8 50mm STM) until you're more knowledgeable and have specific subject matter in mind for your lens purchase.

Edit: Personally, I prefer a 30mm focal length on APS-C at home -- I shoot the older Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM -- where 50mm would be too tight.

Edit 2: Do not confuse the 18-135mm USM with the 28-135mm USM. The latter is a much older model with an inferior USM. I'd pick up the 18-135mm STM over the 28-135mm USM.

Promotional rebates sales on T6i will begin very soon as T7i has already come out, so watch out for excellent prices on T6i from retailers.

Looking for a little advice because I know nothing about photography

What type of lens do I need for taking basic family pictures outside with my T5i? I have the 18-55 lens it came with, which is good. Maybe want something with some more zoom. Any suggestions?

Much appreciated

for portraits get the 50mm f1.8 lens you will get stunning bokeh. else get the 100m L macro it which you can use for portraits and macros and will give you 2x zoom than your 18-55 which is a cheap kit lens.

I highly recommend the 18-135 if you are new to photography. It has got a really useful zoom range on the camera body you have. It can do a nice bokeh at the telephoto end (can't match the 50mm f1.8) and you don't have to switch lenses. Once you are seasoned 50mm is a must..

Agreed with others on the 50mm f1.8. It's not a zoom lens, but you'll find that your 18-55 isn't as good as you think. The 50 will also free you up from using your flash as much inside thanks to the wider aperture, which lets in more light. The built-in flash on the Rebels will make any indoor picture awful, imo.

Repped,

Picked up an 80D which is funny as the 80D with the STM lens is $50 cheaper than body only due to discounts.

Read the reviews on the 80...almost all the tech of the 7D with only a few exceptions I don't care about.

I'm wondering the same. I've been looking at the 80d to step up from a Rebel T1i handed down to me 5+ years ago. I've seen video is great with it and the fully articulating screen looks really useful. Is 800+ refurbished worth it and Canon reliable? Or should we wait out for some deals (maybe better than. rebate deals from last year during BF) since the Canon 77d was announced?

Canon refurbs are terrific. Same 1-year warranty. I personally haven't purchased a refurb body, but I've gotten a refurb lens and it looked just like new.

I haven't been tracking price history since I bought my 7d Mk II in January of last year, but the 80d is A LOT of camera for the price. I don't think the 77d is going to bring the price of the 80d down, as it's slotted below it, despite the newer image processor. A reburb 80d is going to be cheaper than a brand-new 77d anyway.

If you're in the market for a new camera now, then this is as good a time as any to pick up an 80d. Otherwise, you're looking at waiting until one of the next major holidays (Memorial Day or Independence Day) or next holiday season (Nov/Dec).

As someone who upgraded from a T3i to the 7d II, I think you'll be amazed at the difference in AF and ISO performance moving from a T1i to an 80d. If the 80d has custom settings and back-button focus, you probably will enjoy that, too.
