Need AF-S/AF-I lenses (ones with the motor built in).

Seriously tho, with a 10.5 it damn near doesn't matter.

Doesn't the XTI have a really short battery life? Somewhere around 350 shots while the D40 or D80 gives you 700 or so.

I don't shoot with flash and I get around 500 shots from a full charged battery on the XTi (Canon brand battery). It takes exactly 1.5 hrs to fully charge the battery.

Sterling Tek batteries last a lot longer though.. $20 for 2.

^Yes.

Sigma makes some quality glass. But I'd go with brand regardless, Canon/Nikon, because of build quality and IQ.

i just picked up the xti also.. i couldnt afford the 40d.. great camera. has all the functions that you may need. the 40d just goes more into depth with the options.

great camera to start on.



also what lens would be the next step up from the 18-55? i want more zoom but nothing outrageous.

I fixed the links. It all depends on your budget and how much IQ matters to you.. I bought a 17-40 f/4 and a 50 f/1,8 to replace the kit lens. I'm broke :T

What are you taking pictures of? Your outfits? Landscapes? Night photography? Macro? Do you want a compact or SLR? Is zoom important? Help us help you!

Unless you want to experiment with aperture, exposure, depth of field or focal lengths, you don't [FONT=Tahoma]necessarily [/FONT]need an SLR. A lot of new digital compacts now have usable manual modes. Here's a link to the top selling compacts recently: LINK Most are reasonably priced. Take into account memory card type if you already have some around or if your computer has memory card readers built in. Having a Sony compact digital and a Sony desktop computer makes it real convenient to swap memory around.

Alright so I'll be wanting to buy a camera soon. I was to spend between $300 and $350. I am not a photographer, seeing as how I don't own a camera, but I love taking pictures, so I'd like to have a good camera that takes good pictures. I am going to be backpacking through Europe in the spring and summer, and want some good pictures, but I can't have something that is really professional and bulky for the trip.

If you can find a reputable dealer on ebay.. go for it! Personally, I'd buy from Beach Camera because I have good experiences with them. No tax, free shipping, authorized Canon dealer.

I'm planning on getting an XTI.

But i'm having a few problems in chosing a lens.

Basically i want:
-Wide Angle Lens
-And a lens for macro, landscape, and sports/action

Can you guys show me some that are not too expensive.


say i get a 28-135mm. what will be the quality compared to a prime 28mm and prime 135mm.

and for the 28-135mm will 28mm be wideangle and 135mm be okay for portraits/sports/macro?

28mm will be a normal lens on a XTi.. about 45mm.

Use the kit lens as your wide-angle/landscape. 18mm is nice and wide + it comes with the camera.

Get a 100mm f/2.8 for macro or 100mm f/2.0 for sports/action.
