I,m going to buy my first slr camera, an EOS 20D with the 18-55mm lens and was wondering what yall thought about this lens kit. http://www2.butterflyphoto.com/shop/...u=REBELLENSKIT
I plan on getting a Sigma 105mm f/2.8 marco in a week or two. I mostly do landscape photography but like doing marco shots.
It sounds like a good deal to me, but what do i know. I plan on investing some $$$ on "good glass" in the future but for now I need to get out there and play with some "cheap glass" untill I figure out what what lense I need and can aford. Any and all addvice needed. TIA:?:

Since you already have the kit lens, you just need 1 lens: http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...302444#p302444

... It already comes with everything included (they try to 'package' stuff which should came as standard) and another lens which you don't need

That kit has the DL lens.... I think and i'm sure NHL agrees that you want the APO
lens. I just did all this reasearch with the help of people on this forum. (mostly NHL)
BTW... Thanks again NHL

I found the Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO Zoom Macro Super II For $219 all over the
place. I did find it at Tri State in NYC for $169 But I've heard nothing but bad stuff
about them. Anybody else order form them???

I Think i'll just go with Hunt's at $219. The site isn't real smooth and the lens is a
little hard to find but it's there. Here a likn to the right page.

Anybody know a better place... My XT will be in on Saturday and then I'm going to
be scream'n at myself for not getting it ordered.

I'll let you know what it's like when i try mine.

GOOD LUCK
dale
