I'm about to purchase a Canon Digital Rebel XT, body only. I need to make a decision as to what lense to buy for it.I'm an amateur with cameras. But,I do take a lot of digital pictures and make slideshows with music, then burn it onto a dvd.I then watch it on tv, and love doing it all....I could use some expert opinions of what lense would be best for the XT.So, here's an idea of how I use my camera, and I hope it helps me get the right lense that you might suggest:1. I take many indoor shots inside theaters with only the existing stage light with no flash.2. I like to take "continuous mode" shots of my grandkids who move as fast as the speed of sound. Usually taken either outside on the lawn, or inside with the flash off most of the time. So again, "existing light" to contend with here....3. Inside the theater, if I'm unlucky to get seated somewhere in the rear, I'd like to be able to get good "zoom" shots, again, with the flash off, and only with existing stage light.4. As for a "zoom", I don't really do any zoom pictures, except when seated in the rear of the theater, where I can only hope for the best....I don't think my requirements are that difficult or strange to find a proper lense solution for.But, I do know that I'd probably want "Image Stabilization" since it would help with someslower shutter speeds. I would even consider purchasing two (2) lenses in a decent price range, if that would help me solve taking pictures with no flash, and in low existing light.... I'd appreciate any info before I make a mistake and purchase the wrong lense. Thanks
