I've got one of these
although I paid quite a lot less than that!
Lowepro make some well thought out bags, slingshot is great cos you can swing it around and change lenses in it etc without taking it off.

I think it should have been the "new" lens if it was with the 550D.
I had the old and now have the new and am more than happy with it for the money, looking online it has some excellent reviews too. Obviously you can buy better, but I still think its a fine lens for someone starting out on a budget.
