I have a digital canon XT, I have the kit lens and also a Canon 75-300 lens.

I take lots of pictures, not a professional, sports, candids, scenery.

What other lens could I add?

Thanks for any help!

It's one of those depends answers. Are you happy with what you have and the results you are getting? Is there some other type of photography you would like to get into or experiment?

Canon 85mm 1.8 ($370) is the best basketball lens for HS level and below - but you have to realize you can only use the lens from about 25 feet away. Beyond that you will get very inconsistant results. It's the lens I use - you're welcome to check out my basketball posts in the sports forum.

If the price on that is high, the next bet is the 50mm 1.8 - but you have to be about 15 feet away - basically only good for shooting from the baseline, under the basket.

If you're close enough to the stage, the lens will be excellent for dance as well.
