Take a look at the Sigma EX DG lenses. I have both the prime 20mm f/1.8 (great for indoor, wide angle stuff) and also the new 17-35 f/2.8.

You could buy both giving you a wide prime with fast glass and a wide zoom which is also pretty fast for about the cost of the Canon 17-40 which is slower.

The Canon may be better in some respects, but the 10D will probably be pretty forgiving.

Have a ball and take pictures that look good to you!

My vote is for the 17-40 L from cannon. I bought mine from buydig for 659.00 and got a $40. rebate from canon. I had to pay $10. shipping from NJ to NY. The auto focus on the lens is a lot faster then the tamron(28-200) that I also own and the pictures are crisp and clean at both ends of the zoom.

Don't forget the Sigma 18-55mm DC lens especially for digital SLRS such as the 10D. Very sharp and also very compact. Unfortunately it vignettes onstandard 35mm film using EOS cameras

I'd go for

Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Image Stabilized $579

I have a (non-IS) 35-135 5.6 on my 300D. The zoom range is about what I had from my previous digital compact, and it's a smooth sharp lens. The IS will give you better low-light performance or allow you faster shots on sports.

I think you'll find anything that doesn't go over 100mm won't be long enough.

Canons 17-40 f4.0 is a great lens.


Sigma 20-40 f2.8 sounds ok.


Sigmas 17-35 f2.8-4.0 is a bad lens i´ve heard.
