I am thinking of getting a kit with my 40D or 30D with EFS 17-85 IS USM Lens. What I would like to know is: - If I was after really great quality photos but on a budget, what lens should I get that's the same price as a EFS 17-85 IS USM lens at Ebay prices. - Would I be better off putting that money on a quality lens that doesn't have IS USM Zoom etc with it and different brands. - I can only afford the price of an EFS IS USM lens at Ebay prices. Probably like $350 US or $400 Australian if I buy just the body. I have heard of people just buying a lens with a fixed zoom, etc. and they just go up closely or move back to get the shots they want rather than buying a lens with zoom. What would you do, if you were to buy the camera I mentioned but can only afford one lens but would like your photos to be used for Graphic Design and maybe sell the photos. How much of a difference is the IS USM lens compared to the standard kit lenses you get with the 40D and 30D.
