    right now i have

    rebel xti
    18-55 mm
    50 mm f1.8
    battery grip
    polarizer and uv filter

    im looking for a better lense to substitute my 18-55 for my everyday shooting
    (ive seached threads but did not find the answer im looking for specifically)
    mainly i shoot family candids(just to practice) car photography, and i did my first model photography last monday which turned out good!

    my area will just be around the car/model/wedding shoots, i doubt that i will go sports, or wildlife.

    what do you guys recommend? 500$ to 1000 maybe

    p.s. i like my 18-55, im just looking for something better, a better aperture, image stabilizer, and sharper image( based from what ive read somewhere that some lense can produce more sharper images, true or false?)

    I've been doing a lot of research on lenses as of late and this lens seems to be a great lens for about $560 and it covers a nice range of 70-200mm. The only thing is that it doesn't have IS, but I'm not sure if that's an important feature to you or not.

    Not to mention it's a L lens :)

    IS *is* only for still photography, it prevents shake from your hands. It has nothing to do with moving subjects.

    Then I think the 70-200 will be a winner!

    im just showing it, not buying it.

    so its just a descent lense? compared to the 70 to 200.

    if i get the 70 to 200, how many feet from the subject do i have the be?
