Thanks John. Thats a real good advice of not buying any lens before I know which one is needed most.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"S&*@ there are alot of new things added in the XSi. Now, Im totally confused. What wud have u done if u were goin to buy ur first dslr n dis situation arouse? HELP :?

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"The lens is Canon and Ultrasonic was written on it. And its not $560.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Ok, if 'X' isnt useful so is this the depth of field thats written in mm.

And yes, last night we played cricket and I took some shots. First I was not allowed to sit too close as no one wanted to be responsible for breaking my camera or face. Any way I managed to do it and WOW, the results were awesome. I used the settings you recommended me and I was able to capture both bat and ball. Really thanks for the help.

Most of them didnt believe what dey saw.

This issue pops up from time to time. You have to pay attention to tthe PIXELS not the dpi. A camera captures so many pixels - that's what is important. images from my pro level 1dmkIII shows 72 dpi in photoshop. At 36 x 54 inches though. Not really going to print 36x54. at 4x6 that equates to 648 dpi. More than enough. That dpi is informational and has no bearing whatsoever - it's the pixels that matter. The only time dpi really matters is when you crop or resize images. Crop tools will allow you to "throw out" extra pixels when you resize. For instance, photoshop will gladly allow me to crop that image down to 4x6 at 300dpi - I don't want to do that.

So, don't be concerned about that 72 dpi. Worry about how many pixels you have, and when you crop down how many pixels are left. The original image file will have plenty of pixels for even large prints.
