Hi everyone. I am a N00b to this forum. However, I am a veteran in another forum ( the student doctor network) and so I know quite a bit about forum etiquette. So I have to apologize for starting this thread without searching the site extensively. Here's my scenario: I have had a Canon Powershot Pro1 for the past year as a casual camera, but I have decided to try to learn how to take great pictures. So I purchased the Rebel XT and have purchased the 50mm prime lens (f/1.8) and the 20-35mm zoom from Canon. What do you think of my purchases so far for a beginner and what else do you think I should invest in this early on. I realize I will need a longer zoom soon. By the way, how is the wide angle going to be on the smaller sensor at 20mm? ( the lens is still being shipped) Thanks in advance for your patience and help.
