I just picked up the rebel XT kit with the 18-55mm lens, and I am sort of learning all the functions of the camera, and all the terminology and things. So far I think I'm doing fairly well. It's definitely a HUGE upgrade from my SD630 :hail: I can see my self wanting to get a better lens in the near future, preferably something with more zoom. Most of the time I will use the camera to just take pictures of friends and family, some indoors and some outdoors, some during the day, and some at night. I THINK that the lens in the kit will be okay for those applications. Occasionally though, I would like to take the camera to sporting events ranging from baseball games, to just me and my friends playing some football or even my dog running around the park at 200 miles an hour. So my question is, what would be the best lens for me? I am on somewhat of a budget here, under $200....maybe??
