oh and i think AI focus stinks...i'd just use 1 shot...

I agree somewhat. 99% of the time I either use One Shot or AI Servo. Generally, it's One Shot for static images and AI Servo for moving images.

• One Shot (focus lock on half-press)
• AI Focus (locks but monitors movement)
• AI Servo (continuous predictive focus)

hello, did you check in the camera settings if custom colour modes are tampered with? This could very easily result into "weird" colour capture and can easily be forgotten...

Also regardless of the lens a circular polarizing filter would help very much in bright daylight so as you can capture and control the "blues" and "greens" you are after.

eg: 400D with Sigma 18-200 (non OS) and HOYA pro1 Digital CPL filter

i think i'd recommend a 28-135mmIS lens...you can have em for cheap..and you said that you're typically in the 75-125 range...so you're covered

thats another good choice actually, i almost forgot about it

Also the Sigma 18-125 OS is supposedly quite decent if you want a wider range, also pretty affordable..
