    Sorry, this may be a tad inapporpriate, but I don't think too many people view the Classifieds section.

    I'm looking for the kit lense that came with the 350D's so I have a wide angle lense. I'm going to Europe this summer and the widest lense I have is 35mm. I'm hoping to get some good use out of the 18mm.

    So if you have that lense and want to get rid of it, please let me know at this thread:

    Sorry mods, but this is the only way I can get fast and numerous responses :( But to make it less inappropriate, maybe people can suggest me a cheap, wide angle lense that would be goo for taking landscape shots so I don't have to waste some money on the kit lense. Give me some opinions! Thanks guys..

    well, the reason I'm asking here is because I'm hoping someone would nearly donate it to me...Ebay people are out there to get a profit.

    Why didn't you buy the kit lens with your XT?

    it added about 80 or 90 dollars to the price, so I bought a 50mm f1.8 lense with that money saved. I also thought the 35mm lense would be wide enough, but I think I want something wider like the kit lense..

    I recently bought the kit lens second-hand from a great shop here (in Scotland actually) and it only cost me £60. In the US, I would think a shop might have one for $70-90 slightly used - beg your family/friends for some money and pick one up.
