Hi guys!! I'm new to this website and had a quick question for anyone out there..... I am in the process of getting a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT 8.0MP and am needing to get a few extra lenses. I am wanting to get a telefoto lens and a wide angle (preferably 10mm-12mm) lens. Can anyone recommend some good lenses to check out??
Also, I already have a Canon Rebel film camera with a telefoto lens, would that fit on a digital as well??

Thanks so much for your time!! :-)

There's the canon 10-22
The sigma 10-20
The sigma 12-24
The tokina 12-24

The sigma 12-24 is the only full frame lens. If FF is not a concern, I believe the sigma 10-20 was awarded as the best wide angle consumer lens.

But if money isn't a concern, I think the canon's 10-22 performs slightly better.

If your tele lens is an EF mount, it'll work on the XT.

I the lens is a canon EF lens it should work on the digital camera as well. If it is a third party lens it depends some will work but some won't if it is an older third party lens chances are it won't work.

Well, if the lenses were any decent, the seller would bother to list them instead of just saying lenses. And even with all the positive reviews, it seems really suspicious.

And the fact that he listed the optical zoom as 10x when there are different lenses makes me doubt the seller.

If it was me I wouldn't buy from them.
