Hi Everyone! I'm new to the forums here and am just starting getting into the DSLR world. I've had point and shoot in the past and currently have a Kodak P712. I am now going to get the Canon Rebel XSI and just want to know what a good telephoto lens would be to go with this. Right now my Kodak has a "10X" zoom (36mm-432mm equivalent) and I would like a telephoto lens that could have that same "zoom power." I've read a lot of posts and just cannot find one that has the same situation I am in so I was wondering if any of you could help me out. I was considering the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS lens but I'm just wondering if this would be more of a lens than I need. I do want the image stabilization in the lens and, like I said, a zoom comparable to the current Kodak I have. Thank you very much for any help or suggestions you can offer.
