Hi,

I have read posts on this forum for awhile and enjoy it! I am very much a novice but I love to take pics of my girls playing high school basketball. I have a Dimage Z1 and it takes so-so pics inside. I would really like to upgrade. I know I have alot to learn but I am leaning toward the rebel xt. Reading the posts it sounds like the Canon EF-S 17-85 is a good all-around lens foreveryday shots. Would the EF 50/1.8 be ok for indoor sports. I know nothing about lens, so this may be a dumb question. Please bear with me.

My other question is has anyone ordered cameras and lenses from ebay? there seem to be some good deals.

thanks a bunch!!

Darlene

I think 85mm f1.8 would be a nice choice. Gives you more reach than 50mm. For high school you really need low light capabilities unless you can use flash.

would i get that with this camera and lens? is the difference between the 50/1.8 and the 85/1.8 only the distance it will shoot? sorry, i really don't know anything about photography. But i love it and want tolearn, maybe take a class. but right now i want to get some good shots of my daughter playing and that time is NOW!!

thanks a bunch!
