how are we supposed to recommend you a lens if we don't know what you want to do with it? if you're finding you're using your kit lens a ton, like the range, and find yourself not satisfied with its results, upgrade it for something with a similar zoom range. if you feel like you're limited for low light capability, get a fast prime. if you need something wider than your kit lens, buy a UWA.
we can't read your mind man, help us out a little.
sorry you are correct. i shoot a lot of motocross and some skiing here and there. the 70-300, works good for motocross, but for skiing i want something that you dont have to be super close but something that you can still be back away (if that makes sense). when i said the kit lens is junk i meant for moto because you cant always get close enough. hopefully this provides a little more info
