I use the lens about 90 percent of the time on my 20D and love it.

Even better matches the price point of a Rebel XT.

I use it at F2.8 to around F4 most of the time and it rocks! Nice flat picture edge to edge, great sharpness and contrast. You'd have to spend 4x or 5x to beat the quality of this lens, with probably only a minor improvement.

I paid $320 for it after rebates from B &H photo.

start with a nice multicoated polarizer.. then build your filter set from there..
