    Welcome Jase , it can seem daunting but once you get to grips with the basics you will find it drops into place. Would echo everything the guys above say particularly the choice between a cheap new lens and a second hand Canon one , there really is no comparison. Look forward to seeing some of your work as you progress and you are in a great part of the country for birds and wildlife photography so good luck.

    After a few failed Bids and an extended case against a dodgy ebayer, I'm back on the trail of a decent zoom lens! Would the Canon EF 75-300mm F4-5.6 Autofocus Zoom do what I require? Will it fit my 1300D?

    It should, I used to have the 70-300 which was the earlier IS version. IS would be better in my opinion as it helps, it totally depends on budget. Read some reviews of the different lenses.

    Read some reviews here

    Canon EF 75-300mm F4-5.6 Autofocus Zoom
    There were several different versions of 75 - 300 mm zoom, but they are all old models designed in the days of film cameras. All of the recent designs are 70 (not 75) to 300 mm and are better than the old ones, in particular with regard to autofocus, but also in terms of image quality. However, there are also several versions of these, the latest is the EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM. You need to be very careful when buying used as you need to be sure of which model you are getting. Some 75 - 300 models can be found very cheaply, but they aren't nearly as good as the 70 - 300 versions.
    EOS 6D, 6D Mk II, 80D, 70D, 100D, 200D. Canon 10-18, 18 - 55, 55 - 250 IS STM lenses, Canon 16 - 35 mm F4L, 35 mm EF-S macro, 50 mm F1.8 STM, 60 mm EF-S macro, MPE-65 macro, 85 mm F1.8, 200 mm F2.8 L II, Sigma 24 - 35 F2 Art, 135 mm F1.8 Art, 17 - 50 F2.8 DC, 105 mm OS macro, 100 - 400 C, 150 - 600 C.

    Agreed, and is borne out by those reviews, I had the 70-300 MK 1 version with IS and it was a decent lens.

    This version

    But again it all depends on his budget.
