    I decided on the Canon EOS 300v/Rebel Ti. However, I have heard that the
    Get a 50mm F1.8 for low light and optimal sharpness.
    Then get a Canon 75-300 or Canon 100-300 lens..
    I cover a lot of focal lengths with my Canon 22-55 and
    my Canon 75-300 lenses.

  2. Hello all,

    I have just returned to SLR film photography from an extended period with
    digital cameras. Many ages ago, I had a Pentax SLR camera which took very
    good pictures, but was completely manual. That was good, but I thought I
    would update my rig and get something simple enough to let the wife use it
    as well.
    I decided on the Canon EOS 300v/Rebel Ti. However, I have heard that the
    lens is not great. I would also like a more powerful zoom than the default
    lens provides. I also recognize the need for a proper flash.
    Does anyone have any recommendations for a good lens that zooms to a
    minimum of 300mm and is compatible with the EOS? Also, which flash are most
    of you using with this camera? It should have an IR focus strobe rather
    than the flash strobe of the built in lens.

    Thanks a million,

    Andy

    Hi Andrew,

    If it is any help, I currently have the Ti/300V, and the accessories
    that I am looking to purchase (saving the pennies), (in order of
    intended purchase) are:

    EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
    550EX Speedlight (Sync all speeds, zoom availability)
    EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM (or the non-IS version - apparently the IS
    version isn't much liked & will have to try out)

    However there are other purchases that I would like to make, such as
    wider angle lens (17-40L)& lightmeter (Minolta VI) in there as well, but
    that's off-topic.

    And yes, the standard kit lens is extremely frustrating, and not all
    that good.

    cheers

    Rob
