I am about to take the dive. As I stated previously, I started an internship with a local newspaper, but they do not provide gear for me and the pro I follow shoots Nikon while I shoot a Canon Digital Rebel XT. What I shoot: Indoor hockey with decent light. I shot with a Tamron 28-300, mostly with a 4-5.6 aperture and after some color adjustment, they look fine - I just needed a faster shutter speed. Nothing pro here. Middle school, high school sports tops. Indoor events with better light. I plan on purchasing an addition wide angle too. I shoot with a monopod and have steady hands. No IS necessary. Which of these two, unless you want to suggest MORE, which I would be happy too look at, would be better for a college student with a part-time job. http://www.sigma4less.com/sess/utn;...ofocus+Lens+for+Canon+EOS+=28SG70200F28DCA=29 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/con...s&Q=&sku=183198&is=USA&addedTroughType=search I'm not sure where to find the Canon.
