I guess it depends on what your expectations are. I have had the rebel xt for about 10 days. i took some photos with the 18-55 and i will never use it again. It performed ok outside in bright light. Inside it was simply hideous. I now have the 17-40 L after returning the Sigma 17-35 HSM. If you have still have doubts i will post a test photo I took inside at my office next week, its so awful its comical. Bad CA on lights unsharp ugly ugly ugly...:shock: The Sigma was much better but I am a quality freak and it just wasnt sharp enough, I am very pleased with the Canon 17-40 L but its 659.00 at B&H might be out of your range, but if you think long term its a great investment, it will work on both full frame and 1.6, 1.3 crops and will last forever.....
