Hello forum, I just recently joined this forum but I have been taking pictures with my first digital camera for about 2 years now (Fuji FinePix 3800). I love photography and love a lot of the photos shown here on this message board system. About a week ago, I placed an order for the new Canon EOS 20D dSLR and my question is what lense would anyone recommend for my first purchase. I love all sorts of photography and can't seem to make a decision. Both of my brothers play sports and I love going to their games, camera in hand, and taking action shots. So I thought about getting the Canon EF 200mm f/2.8 L USM lense (effectively a 300mm lense with the 1.6 cropping factor). I also like wildlife photography and this lense would work great there too. However, I also like to do macro photos and standard portraits. So I've been looking at canon's website for their EOS lense lineup and can't decide. The zoom lenses with nice wide apetures cost as much as the camera. I would like something with a good size maximum apeture so I can take shots in low light conditions (they just hate turning on those stadium lights even when the players can't see what's in front of them. ) Any advice?
