you should be able to sell that 18-55IS here for at $100. I picked two up of Craigslist relatively cheap, and sold one with my old XT. the other, my daughter uses on her XTi, and I may just stick it in my bag when i go to Greece this summer, if I haven't bought something different by then.

I've been looking at that option. The top price seems to be about $115, which wouldn't be bad. We're saving up for the 580EX II as well as the (gasp!) 70-200 2.8 IS for the 50D, so the money will definitely come in handy. I'll probably post it in another week or so. :)

Not sure of UK prices, but the 24-105 f4 is a very good lens plus you have an interest in macro which this lens has.

The 24-105 does not have macro. It's maximum magnification is 1:4.4 which is a bit less than the standard kit lens at 1:3.6 or the 24-70 at 1:3.5.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Well then, my 24-105 f4 must then be the only one Canon has made, as it definitely has the word "Macro" along side the 0.7M marker.

So does the 28-135, and lots of other lenses. That doesn't make it a macro lens, it's just telling you that you're reaching your minimum focusing distance.

if budget is not an issue, 17-55 IS + 70-200 f4 or f2.8 IS L. a prime would also be nice to have, maybe a 35L, 50 1.4, 60 or 100 macro...

Since when is budget not an issue?! Especially seeing as it's a 50d...

I chose the 40d over the 50d, but the 50d did have a few features, that would have been nice. I like the idea of being able to fine tune the focus on different lenses. the vga screen might be nice, but the 40d is a huge improvement over my XT (350d). They say the 50d is more prone to camera shake, and I saved a couple hundred bucks. Have no complaints about the 40d. Love it.

Please forgive my ignorance, but how would one body be more susceptible to camera shake than another?

+1. Who says it's more susceptible to camera shake? The 40D and 50D are identical bodies on the outside.

depends what you will be shooting more of?

IMHO there really isnt an "all around" lens that is great...a few good ones

but with a crop body a 17-40L might work great for you :D

If I had to have just one lens for my 50 it would easily be the 24-105L.

Two lenses, 24-105L + 70-300 (budget lens) or the 100-400L

Three lenses 10-22mm + 24-105L + 100-400L


And If I had $4000 to $4500 to spend

10-22mm, 17-55 F2.8, 24-105L, 100-400L, 100 macro and a 50mm F1.8 II Prime

For portraits and macro and your budget, you could probably get 50/1.4 + 100 macro. Another option if you want a zoom is t replace the 50 by a Tamron 17-50/2.8 or 28-75/2.8.
