Hello,

I'm planning on purchasing a Canon Rebel XT tomorrow and I'm trying to decide what lenses I'm going to get. Right now I'm looking at getting the: Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 AF Lens and the Sigma 28-70mm f2.8-4 HIGH SPEED lens.

I was hoping to get some reviews on these lenses and if they are good quality and will give me the great pictures that the rebel can produce.



Thanks for any help,

Snick :|

Snicker_bar4u,

Take a look at the tamron 28-75, it's F2.8 throughout the zoom range.

Also, that 70-300mm starting at F4 is a kinda slow lens.

Do you really need the 300mm end of it, which would equate to something like a 450mm at the far end when you apply the sensor crop factor?

The question is, what sort of shots do you take?
