    hi folks.
    I recently invested in a canon 350d and am loving its work. Im feeling a little restricted with the generic lense that its packed with. ive looked at the canon wide angle lenses but there a little out of my student budget. can anyone recommend a good alternative? i guess my budget is around £150... i dont even know if this is realistic but any advice would be greatly appreciated. fanx!!!

    Have a look at the Canon 50mm f1.8. Well within budget! It gives about the focal length of 80mm of 35mm and excellent for portraiture and candids without flash. Nice and crisp compared with the generic 18-55 lens is a bit soft. If you can put the Sigma 18-200 or the Tameron equivalent on your wish list I would as this once on will cover almost al your needs and rarely off my 350D so less chance of dust!

    if you want a cheap superzoom, i'd look into the sigma 18-125mm also. it is better than the 18-200 (although it has a shorter zoom range, which is actually the reason).
