Hey everyone, I'm a complete newb when it comes to SLR's and photography in general so I was hoping someone could help me out. I just ordered the Canon Rebel XTi online. It comes with the Canon 18-55mm EF-S Lens. Being the newb that I am, this should be a good starting point. But I've read that the stock lens doesn't have any sort of image stabilization to help with camera shake. So... what alternatives do I have? I don't want to carry around a bunch of lens' wherever I go. I'd like to have 1 good lens that works well in most situations. Also, I've read that filters can help protect the lens. Does anyone have any recommendations on a good filter? Or will pretty much any filter work and there's not much of a difference in quality between makes/brands?
