    Welcome to TPF.

    I have a 28-200 Tamron lens for my Rebel XT and find it very versatile (don't have to keep switching lenses as there's a good range). I find it decent enough. but I'm just an amateur photog, so others may have a more informed opinion

    Well it mainly depends on what you need. IF you travel alot and would like zoom in nice and close than you will like the 28-300. But if you will be takin more portraits and pictures indoors the 38-75 will be nice becuase of the larger aperture.
