So I picked up a new camera last week, a Canon Digital Rebel.  Quite a big improvement over my previous digital, a Nikon CoolPix 995.  Unfortunately there hasn't been a good day to take it outside and try some shots, what with the WA weather and all.  I decided to upgrade now as we are heading to Hawaii in March and I definately wanted a good camera for the trip.  Got any recommendations for lens and a bag?  I would like to pick up a zoom / telephoto for sure, maybe a lens that offers a wider angle than the kit lens too.  I'll probably lurk over at the forums and see what folks there are using.
