Recommended lens

  • I just bought a Canon Digital Rebel XT 8MP Digital SLR Camera it came with a EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 Lens. What other lens should I have, This is my first SLR and have been using a point and shoot for 6 years.
  • Hi Jason,
    for a long time I, too, used a point-and-shoot small pocket Canon Ixus... until I realized that it's time to change
    18-55 is not the best but better than nothing!

    It depends on what you need the camera for..

    in any case, I'd advise to get a lens with Image Stabilizer. It's more expensive but it helps a lot.

    as far as I know, these two are among the most popular ones:
    50mm (for example, http://www.the-digital-picture.com/R...ns-Review.aspx)
    and 18-200mm (a universal one - for those who do not want to bother about changing the lenses every minute )...

    PS. on TE there are more professional photographers than I am (I am just an amateur), so I hope you'll hear more opinions
