I will be getting a canon rebel t1i and I'm not sure if i should buy a kit or just purchase the body and then the lens separately. I tend to find subjects that are too far away and the photos get cropped and the end result isn't as sharp as i would like them to be. i am hoping that going from 7 to 15MP will help with this a bit but this is not why I'm getting the t1i. I like to take landscape and macro photos but i also have kids in sports. my budget right now for lenses is no more than $400.00 and i am aware that I'm not going to get much in the way of quality but i don't want to shell out a bunch of money when i haven't even learned the basics. so, i guess id like to know what type of Cheap decent quality lens i can get as of right now i have an olympus sp550uz that has 15x optical zoom and i REALLY like that feature and would like something that can do what it can do: There was no cropping done to this pic and it was taken while i sat on my back steps with NO TRIPOD! ignore the bluf of the first pic..it was as a reference only http://c1.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/111/l_2836e26e25fc4ca395cd1d38f9037930.jpg i have looked at so many and read so many reviews my head is spinning! i found a few kits/lenses that i ask you to comment on: Canon EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR Camera PLUS + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Zoom Lens [Outfit] + Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro Lens - $864.00 (comes with 16g card + other acc) Sigma 18-50mm f/3.5-5.6 DC & 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Macro DG AF Zoom Lens Kit - $219.95 Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC AF OS Zoom Lens - $401.86 Sigma 28-70mm & 70-300mm AF Lens Set $229.95 Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Lens $190.00 Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro Telephoto Zoom Lens $159.00 Like i said, my head is spinning and your help is greatly appreciated and needed!
