I'm going to grab myself a 40D next month when i visit New York. It will be an upgrade from my 350d which I've been using with the kit lens and a Canon fixed 50mm f1.8. I'll get the camera from BH Photo. These guys have the 40D with a choice of 2 lenses; EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens @ $1,664.95 EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Image Stabilizer USM AF Lens @ $1,369.95 I'm gonna keep the 50mm and maybe get a 10 - 22mm Canon or 10 - 20mm Sigma also (if I can afford it and the wife doesn't kill me!) Do you guys have any advice on which kit to get and bearing in mind that the 10 - 20/22mm might not be viable? At the moment i'm leaning towards the 28 - 135 Cheers!
