    Hello There!!!
    I just bought the eos 350 kit and I'm finding that the 18-55 EF-S lens isn't worth the money!
    I'm looking for a better lens, something around 28-200 usm or 18-200, any suggestions? ;)

    That's just about the least expensive lens in the Canon line-up, what about it, isn't worth the money?

    Have a look at these...

    EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM
    EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM
    EF 70-200mm f/4 L USM

    EF 17-40mm f/4 L USM

    The ef-s 18-55 definitely isn't worth the money, it has low contrast, it's slow at 55 mm(F5.6) and it is ef-s, it can't be used on other ef slr's! (and I badly needed a wide lens for my 5000n):(
    The EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM looks really good :), but I find it a bit expensive!

    How about the Sigma Lens?
    Is it that good?:)

    If you are not happy with the 18-55, then you won't be too happy with anything that costs less than $700-$1000.

    I hear many, many great reviews for the 17-40 F4 L. Check that one out.

    I think a few people around here have the Sigma 70-200 F2.8, I've heard good things.

    Sigma 70-200 F2.8, hmm, that will give me something like 112-320 mm considering the 1.6 crop factor, right? ;) (and it's fast)
    I could keep using the 18-55 at wide angles :( and this one at telephoto.;)
    I see it's about £549.00 !!
    That's half the price of the EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM
    Thanks for the tip Big Mike! ;)
