    Ok so I don't know anything about lenses, I reaaaaly want a 40d, because it's fast and so great. the only problem is I can afford the body and about $300 on a lens and memory card and any other things I would need. What other stuff would I need? Mostly sports shooting. does this lens suck really bad or is it jus cheap and good for the money? any other good lenses for under 250?

    Okay, first of all, glass before body. And you're not gonna find good sports glass for under 250.

    You're not gonna find sports glass that WILL WORK for under 250. At least, not in anything but midday sunlight.

    The Rebel Xt is a fine body and should save you some money.

    How far from "the action" are you gonna be most of the time?

    Well I run track, so I will do alot of my shooting, there, at tracks, so not too far not more than a couple feet, I also shoot at race tracks, which is a bit further, but I can get up to about 20 or 30 feet from "the action". And I shoot other stuff like carshows and things where I am close as I want to be.

    As close as a couple feet? That CERTAINLY opens up the options.

    should work.

    What you're looking for is a lower aperture number, and a 50mm 1.8 will work in fairly low light.
