    Can ya'll tell me about those 2 lenses? I don't have alot of money and either way I go I will be a one lens skrub for a while as the little investments I will make will be for a bag and filters not for more lenses...

    Can ya'll compare the 2 lenses for me?

    Thanks!

    I'd go with the 28 since you will have the full frame. Your budget is limited so you're going almost all out with a 50D?

    The 50D is a 1.6x crop so EF vs EF-S wont matter.

    OP if thats going to be your set up for a while id go with the more versatile 18-200mm lens. its a much much newer lens than the 28-135mm. i think that lens has third gen IS which gives you about 3 stops of hand hold ability, which is very good. is it worth the extra money to you though?

    Oh crap. Forgot that WAS a cropped sensor. Thought it went to full frame this time. That doesn't happen until you get to the 5D

    Sorry
