It's not so much the need for a bigger one, but rather another one. There's currently one for the 3 cameras that can use it. Personally, there's events I can certainly photograph much better/at all with another telephoto lens given the existing one being used in Wales currently.


Well affordable third party long zooms don't have the best of reputations so your options would probably be either the Canon EF-S 55-250 mm f/4-5.6 IS STM  (amazon says £163) or if you wanted a bit more reach a second hand canon EF 70–300mm f/4–5.6 IS USM (London camera exchange says £250) but thats about twice the weight:


If you want something that can cover the whole range, then Sigma do some quite nice superzoom lenses - I've been using an 18-200mm stabilised lens as my every-day lens on my 60D since 2010. There's a newer (2012-era) 18-250mm lens that looks better:
costing around £200-£280 - but I'm a bit out of date on the newest lenses...
