    new lens for canon rebel t5

    Hello all I am new to photography and just received my Rebel T5. So far I just have the stock ef-s 18-55 mm lens. I would like to get another lens. Rite now I don't really have a specific style of shooting in mind, I'm just trying a little of everything to see what I like. However it seems like landscapes and cityscapes are kind of the majority of what I have access to. So my question is if you were in my situation and had 2-3 hundred to spend on a lens what would pick up? thanx in advance for any help!

    I totally get the "I want more stuff" thing; in photography we call it "GAS" or, "Gear Acquisition Syndrome". The problem is, when people buy stuff just to get something, it's usually the wrong thing. Wait until you've gone out shooting and found the same issue at least a half-dozen times, "This lens isn't fast enough", or "This lens isn't wide enough" or "This lens isn't long enough" and then get the lens that will fulfill that requirement.
