If you're doing landscapes and buildings, the 50mm on the camera body you have will have you standing back a little ways just to get everything in the image.

Might be worth considering a 24 or 30 mm, or going with a better normal zoom such as the 17-55 F2.8

Also, there should be lots of other kit lenses floating around out there on creigs list and the likes that are of better quality then the 2 you currently have. Also, the 75-300 looks best between 75-250mm, when you go past all the colours separate badly. So just something to keep an eye on.
After this one I'm going to have to wait a while until I can buy another lens .

I was actually wrong about my second lens since I haven't even used it yet. It's the EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS. Either way, I'll keep an eye out for a good deal on a used one, but at least for now I think I'm gonna stick with what I got.
