Beginner here...Have a Canon Digital rebel XTI with 10 megapixels..I like to shoot landscapes, Wildlife, flowers Etc..It came with an 18-55mm lense..I want to get a good telephoto with the anti- shake or anti vibration feature & a good wide angle...Would like to get both for 1700$ or less, if possible..I may upgrade the camera in a couple of years so good lenses which would complement a higher end camera are desireable...Thanks...

Hey, Thanks for the responses.:?...I'll try again...I just got Prez George's stimulis check and I feel all stimulated to help stimulate the economy by getting a nice stimulating wide angle...Any stimulating ideas??I've pretty much decided to go with Canon's 70-300mm telephoto but am at kind of a loss for a wide angle....

Well if you want to hang on to them for a few years then an obvious choice for the wide-angle is the 17-40 f4 L. (~$650).

For telephoto there are lots of choices, but probably the best lens you can get in the 70-100 range is the Sigma 100-300 f4. ($1100) but the Canon 70-300 f4-5.6 IS is also very good at half the price.
