what would be the best lens for a canon rebel xt for around $250?
What lenses do you have and what is it that you want to be able to do?
Really depends on what you need.
If you can save up a bit longer...
Get the Sigma 17-70 f/2.8
^^^I almost fainted when you posted that, as I have never heard of it before but would love one!
But no, it's a 17-70 mm f/2.8-4.5.
How about the Sigma 24-70 mm f/2.8 EX DG macro lens? Like the 17-70 mm, it's also more than $250, but it's around the same price as the 17-70 mm and is a high quality lens.
Otherwise, I recommend the Canon 50 mm f/1.8 or f/1.4, as they're well within budget.
If you don't already have the 50mm f/1.8, then you need that. Save the rest of the money for a better lens later (when you've got about $600).
